Apricot White Fudge

This fudge has become a family favorite because of the luscious blending of flavors. 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. —Debbie Purdue, Freeland, Michigan

    This was so smooth and I loved the apricot flavor. I will be definitely making again this Christmas and it was so easy to make for a fudge.

    O Help us Lord, This came out of the month of a person whom is not a fan of any kind of fudge. I don't even eat fudge, Talk about decadent smooth and rich all in one bite. If you follow the recipt you can't go wrong. So simple but what an outcome! Merry Christmas / Happy New Year 2014

    I made this fudge for Christmas 2010 and it was fantastic! It's one of those rare dishes that ends up being a conversation starter and everyone asks for the recipe. It was easy to make and turned out beautifully! I will be making this fudge again and I plan on making it again next year to give as gifts. It's that good! :)

    This is one of the best recipes yet for white fudge. I made it with and without nuts--both were a hit at our annual Christmas party! I am making more for gifts.
