My grandchildren savor the job of taste-testing my baking experiments. I combined two recipes to come up with this yummy fudge dotted with crisp toffee bits. The kids gave it a "thumbs-up" before requesting a batch to take home.
This quick fudge is always popular wherever it shows up and makes great gifts for loved ones and friends. People love the creaminess and toffee bits. And it's so easy, even young children can help make it—with a little supervision! —Diane Willey, Bozman, Maryland
Tiny toffee bits add a delightful crunch to this creamy fudge. I decorated each piece with a green frosting rosette for our church's St. Patrick's Day fundraiser dinner. By changing the design, you have dessert for any occasion. —Kristine M. Chayes, Smithtown, New York
Meet the Cook: My mother and I get together every year around Christmastime to make this delicious chocolate-coated toffee, using a recipe she got years ago in a cooking class. It's a tradition I plan to continue with my daughters and grandchildren. Our families and friends wait with mouths watering for their packages.

After trying a coworker's fabulous toffee, I had to have the recipe! It's now a regular on my Christmas cookie tray. I also entered it at our country fair and received "Best in Show.”—Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
My kids have food allergies, including tree nuts and peanuts. But they can eat pumpkin seeds so every fall we save the seeds from our pumpkins to add to various recipes including this one.—Suzanne Earl, Vernal, Utah
