With the holiday season quickly approaching, I have gotten the urge to start preparing my family's favorite Christmas goodies. However, this year I am in the process of revamping all of our favorites into treats with more wholesome ingredients...whole-grain flours, natural sweeteners, etc...
A few of these switches have been easy--for example, swapping out regular white flour for whole-wheat pastry flour for quick breads and cookies. It's also fairly easy to swap rapadura or honey for sugar. The one recipe I am having a particularly hard time swapping is fudge! My family loves fudge, and in preparation for the holidays, I began tinkering with my tried and true fudge recipes about three months ago. With the exception of a peanut butter-maple fudge, not one single fudge I've made has been acceptable to the family!
I am asking for my dear readers to please help me with this issue. If you have a healthier way of making fudge, please send me your recipes! I am also looking for recipes for other types of holiday goodies as well...send 'em my way!
Our family especially likes these types of fudge:
Old-fashioned fudge w/pecans or walnuts
Peppermint white chocolate
Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated!
