Beets Sweets — Fudge

As the holidays approach I am filled with memories of helping my mom bake for our family back in Indiana. One of my favorite recipes is my Great Aunt Kate’s Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fudge. The fudge is delicious and even the beginner baker can master it! Different types of chocolate can be used to customize it to your own taste.  Add chopped nuts or a crushed candy cane topping to put it over the top.  This is sure to be a crowd pleaser at any holiday gathering.

Enjoy- Chelsea
