When I got married, a lady at my parents’ church gave me this version of a popular Michigan treat. I sometimes pipe a bit of frosting on each piece for decoration during the holidays. —Kristen Ekhoff, Akron, Indiana
I have used this recipe for last-minute gifts. Friends relish the delectable hint of raspberry and the creamy texture of the fudgy treats. It's the perfect addition to your annual cookie tray. —Maria Jaloszynski, Appleton, Wisconsin
I've been making this easy and delicious fudge for Christmas for the last 20 years. It's great to give as a gift. For variation, I sometimes add mint chips or extract. —Sherry Hamilton, Florissant, Missouri
With its pretty butterscotch and chocolate layers, this creamy fudge looks fancy. Suggests Jackie Hannahs of Fountain, Michigan. "It makes a great holiday gift. Both my husband and my dad love trying different kinds of fudge. They give this recipe a big thumbs-up!"
My aunt now lives in Hawaii, and she keeps our family supplied with fresh pineapples, mangos and macadamia nuts...along with recipes like this one. Here on our Mississippi Delta family farm, we grow rice, soybeans and Southern pecans. When I run out of macadamias for candy-making, I substitute pecans. Whichever nuts I use, neighbors like this fudge so much that they have started to call me the "Candy Lady of Cleveland".
