It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is DOUBLE-DECKER FUDGE!
When I think of Christmas recipes that get pulled out every year to share with my friends and family, candy tops the list. I have a LOT of wonderful candy recipes so let me share one of my favorite fudge recipes. This fudge doubles the fun!
I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
