All Candied Out

Peanut Butter Fudge: This is Kimberly Yates' recipe from the Skyline Ward Relief Society cookbook. It was pretty straightforward except I didn't have enough marshmallow cream so I had to run to the store and get more right in the middle of the recipe. Robert says it's a winner and all the kids are hoping there is a lot left over after gifting.

Penuche Fudge: This was by far the most difficult of all the candy I made. I had to beat it by hand with a wooden spoon for 10 minutes until it lost it's "gloss." My arms were killing me! Also, this recipe (which is found in the red and white checked Better Homes and Gardens cookbook) only made an 8 x 4 loaf pan's worth of candy. However, it is so tasty, I'm really glad I made it.

Georgia Pralines: Hmmm, where to begin. This is not what I'd pictured my Georgia pralines to look like. I pictured them looking more like this. Anyway, after thinking I'd completely messed these pralines up, then realizing that maybe I didn't, I decided to let the family eat them up instead of giving them away.

MMMM, peanut butter!

I've never made Georgia Pralines. I bet your family was happy to gobble them up! They were probably thinking, IT'S ABOUT TIME! :)

What? No chocolate?

I made a bunch of chocolate fudge, recipe called Million-dollar fudge on allrecipes.com, and it turned out great. A little too great....

Agreed--where's the chocolate? :) J/k--I'm very impressed. You are such an inspiration of cooking, baking, canning, etc. Seriously, I am going to have to take classes from you. :)

Heather, I didn't want try for chocolate fudge because I know that is Kathy's specialty and that there would be plenty to go around at Christmas.

I think those pralines look perfect. The texture is slightly different depending on the creaminess of the recipe and site of the pecans.
