    I’ve made fudge a total of 1 time. I think it’s time for me to get over my fear of it and try it again. And what better way than with your patriotic fudge. It’s so pretty, the kids (and everyone) would love it.

    I love the swirls, the fudge turned out perfectly! I love the star shape of them. I’ll try to make it on some celebration at my home. The fudge recipe looks great! I can’t wait to try it! My question is….can I use liquid food coloring or does it have to be the paste kind??
