I guess you could make all kinds of shapes from this super easy fudge and use candy to decorate it. I thought the wreath looked absolutely beautiful and fun.
Those little candy tins would be great, though, not just for presentation but for another important reason, as well. It only takes about 5 minutes to make this recipe, but if you’re making a wreath you’ll have to wait at least 30 minutes for it to set in the refrigerator. Use the candy tins instead, and put the fudge in the freezer – it’ll be done in about 5-10 minutes!
