Betty’s Fudge

02 Mar Betty’s Fudge

Do you ever need a gift for the person who has it all? This coming week I have a friend with a birthday that just might be the hardest person to buy for. I have made several attempts to get her the perfect present, but then either see that she already owns it or has recently purchased it. Last year I finally cracked the code when it dawned on me that she has a sweet tooth… and I decided to make her homemade treats. She loved them! I spoke her love language in getting her the perfect gift and one that I had put thought and time into. So often we feel like we have to give something elaborate as a gift. When actually spending time and love to make something is just what is needed.  fudge


My dear friend Betty made the most wonderful fudge. I came across her recipe as I hunted through my cookbook for the perfect birthday treat to make. Betty passed a few years ago, and being in her eighties she left quite the legacy. At her memorial service they actually passed plates of her fudge as we enjoyed a moment of silence in her honor. They also handed out her special recipe.
