In our household, we always knew growing up that fall time meant that it was time to make homemade fudge. Now, we’re pretty sure this might actually have just been a weird family tradition, or perhaps something typical of the area we lived in, because many friends have told us that this was not a strictly autumn thing when they were little, but we’ve never changed it up, just out of respect for tradition! Of course, this doesn’t mean that we won’t eat fudge during the rest of the year if we’re offered or we see a particularly yummy looking block at a store, but September has just always been the time where we gathered our family all together in the kitchen and made homemade fudge from scratch and that’s something we really value doing! This year, however, we noticed that our kids didn’t seem as excited as they usually do when it came time to make the kinds that they’ve tried many times before. That’s how we found ourselves looking for exciting new DIY fudge recipes all across the Internet, just to put a fun twist on an old tradition!
