|White Chocolate Maple Walnut Fudge|
It is Christmas time in our house, which means I will be making countless batches of fudge within the next few weeks. Yes, I do make fudge year-round but the holiday season is the perfect time to give the treats away as gifts and bring to parties.
This white chocolate maple walnut fudge is one of several favorites among my family. It is smooth with just the right amount of crunch form the walnuts. The maple flavor is strong but not overwhelming. It reminds my husband and I of a thick and creamy maple sugar candy.
|The fudge sets up in a 9″x13″ cake pan. I score it into 48 pieces.|
