Expert Tips

Fudge and turtles are popular holiday candies. This easy recipe combines these two tasty treats.

Whether serving fudge at home or giving it as a gift, place each square in a festive small foil or paper candy cup. Meant for chocolates such as peanut butter cups, candy cups are smaller than muffin cups. Look for them at candy and cake supply stores or in the grocery store baking aisle.
