  5. Let cool in the fridge and then cut into pieces.

Families Tip: Consider using a heart-shaped cutter to make fudge love hearts for Valentine’s Day. Wrap them in cellophane and tie them up with ribbon and you’ve got a fun little gift for co-workers or something simple to share with the kids on the day. Even better, get the kids involved in making the fudge.
