What are your favorite non-chocolate fudge or candy recipes? I make this one with great results using extra fine sugar. I would like to have 2 more to add to a plate for some chocolate haters on my list.

This candy recipe is very pretty on gift trays and tasty too. If cranberries are not on hand, dried cherries or raisins will work beautifully in this recipe.

Chocolate and almonds top off a rich buttery toffee. A simple recipe that you could easily remember and whip up any time. I always get compliments and requests for more. Use any type of nut that you like in place of the almonds.

Using crunchy peanut butter gives this fudge some texture to go with its delicious taste.

Remove from heat and stir well. Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie tray and let harden. Or place mixture into a nine-inch greased baking tray. When cool cut into squares.

CHOCOLATE FUDGE 1 1/2 lbs granulated sugar 2 tbs (heaped) cocoa powder 2 tins sweetened condensed milk 1 tsp vanilla extract 1 oz butter Combine sugar with sifted cocoa powder. Place in saucepan. Stir in milk, cook on a moderate heat until sugar melts. Do not allow sugar to boil before it melts. Boil for about 45 minutes until the candy gets to a soft ball stage. (Drop a little of the mixture into a glass of water, it should form a soft ball. Stir in vanilla and butter. Remove from the heat and beat well until mixture thickens and leaves the side of the pan. Pour into a greased tin. When cool, cut into squares (before fudge hardens too much) Makes about 18-24 VANILLA FUDGE 1 lb sugar 1 tin evaporated milk 2 tbs butter 1 tsp vanilla extract Dissolve sugar in the milk.
