Sometimes the simplest of dessert recipes are the ones that end up making their way into our hearts.

Citrus flavor desserts whether orange or lemon flavor have a wonderful balance of sweet and sour flavors. The key to achieving this balance is through measuring and adding the right proportion of ingredients. Adding an excess of one or the other ingredients can throw away the taste so always remember to maintain the right proportions handy for a recipe like this one.
Whenever you’re on a hunt for white chocolate, a good tip that will come handy is to look for the chocolate that has a higher proportion of cocoa butter in it. Many white chocolate brands that claim to be of “high-quality” contain very little cocoa butter and mostly have fillers like milk, oil and sugar in them. The key to delivering optimum white chocolate flavor in baked goods is to use a premium quality white chocolate. If you check the ingredients list, they're labelled either as white baking chips or morsels, and usually may not always have hundred percent chocolate. If you are not able to find a good quality white chocolate, you may want to stick to the good old dark chocolate chips in this recipe. Any dark chocolate with at least 70 percent or more cocoa is considered to have gone through less processing or ‘Dutching’ as the term is often referred. Dark chocolate is an excellent source of antioxidants, improves cardiovascular health and contains fiber and iron.
If you’re feeling slightly brave with trying new flavors, you can also use butterscotch chips or Skor toffee bits in this recipe. Fudge is one of the best fun desserts you can make especially because there is no right or wrong way to making it and there are so many creative variations that you can try. Although making fudge sounds easy, it still requires a bit of understanding and precision for making that perfect batch of glossy and creamy homemade fudge. The main thing to keep in mind while making fudge is heating and cooling the mixture to precise temperatures. The secret lies in using a thermometer and having the patience to let the fudge cool before stirring. That is why it’s a good idea to invest in a candy thermometer so that you can measure the temperature to make that perfect dreamy fudge.
