Espresso Fudge | 20 Gift Idea Recipes for the Holidays

I have to say, I hate doing gift exchanges. Really.

It never fails, you always end up with some sort of trinkets or nic-nacs that you don’t want, or you don’t have a place for it. Then what do you do? Do you keep it because so-and-so got it for you? Do you give it away or donate it? What if Aunt Sue comes to visit and asks about said unwanted trinket? The struggle is real folks.

My solution? Give consumables. I like to give people things they can use. Use it up, enjoy it while you have it, and then it is done. Whether it is pretty candles, “gourmet” lotions or edibles. They are appreciated and not a burden! That’s what I love about gifts like this. Who doesn’t love a tin of fudge? They eat the yummy fudge, then if they want it, they have a tin they can use or regift with other goodies.

  2. Your Fudge looks wonderful and sounds just as delicious…..do you make a peanut butter fudge too? Could you use this same recipe and substitute peanut butter for the marshmallow creme ?
