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

Truffle Topiary

This delicious "tree" created from chocolates—is rooted in Elisa Schmidt's generosity. "I wanted to give family and friends something they'd remember," she detailed. "So I whipped up piles of these sweets for everyone." Adding to the fun, the CT kitchen staff turned Elisa's treats into a tree. They took their cue from the way she described preparing those piles of candies in her kitchen. You'll find it easy to do the same for Valentine's ...a birthday...or to brighten a cloudy winter day.
