White Fudge

If you're looking for a Valentine's Day gift to make to show your special one how much you care, Leader food columnist recommends this White Fudge.

Chocolate candy has long been a symbol of Valentine’s Day.

Elementary school-aged students celebrate the holiday by spending hours decorating boxes with red crepe paper and big white, lacy hearts so they can be filled with valentines from all their classmates. Then, there’s a class party with candy and other special treats to be enjoyed once the valentines are given out.

Not everyone can afford bouquets of flowers, fancy jewelry or even a box of candy to show their love on Valentine’s Day. So, here’s a recipe for White Fudge you might want to make for your special one today.

Homemade treats are a wonderful way to show loved ones and friends how much you care, and this affordable, candy treat, made with love and affection, is certain to warm the heart of that special “someone.”
