I am a substitute teacher and found this fudge recipe in a very old book in our school library. It was written before microwaves, so I modified it to make a quick treat. The faculty and staff gave it rave reviews. —Peggy Key, Grant, Alabama
"This fudge has become a family favorite because of the luscious blending of flavors," notes Debbie Purdue of Freeland, Michigan. "I try to make it for gifts at Christmastime." Use a candy thermometer or the cold-water test to make sure the mixture reaches soft-ball stage; then chill until set.
This colorful treat is sure to satisfy the sweetest tooth in any family! It's always been a favorite with my nine kids, eight grandkids and my Bible study group. I even vary the soft-drink flavors to match other holidays during the year.
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.
People regularly request the recipe once they try my peanut butter fudge dipped in melted white chocolate. It's a nice contrast to typical chocolates on a candy platter. —Tall Pines Farm, Gloria Jarrett, Loveland, Ohio
