"A very pretty fudge. I prefer chocolate fudge myself, but I love how pretty a gift this makes. When I sliced the gum drops (use the "spice ones for better flavor", I placed the sliced pieces in a bowl of white sugar to keep them from sticking to one another. easy to do and so nice for gift giving!"

"I have made these the last two years. Instead of the gumdrops I use chopped up dried apricots and 2 bags of white chocolate chips instead of the coating. easy, very delicious, and perhaps a tad more nutritious."

"This was one of the easiest and most delicious candy recipes I have ever tried. I took some to work and some to my family's Christmas gathering and everyone wanted the recipe! I used 2 bags of vanilla chips instead of the candy coating, which worked out just fine. I will definitely make this recipe again!"

"To Smoothmotion: Yes, you can use Ghirardelli white baking chips in place of the candy coating....and your fudge will be just as good if not better!"
