I'm going to try to make fudge this year. Any tips? I've never made it before.

I make a scrapbook for my parents, ornaments, painted flowerpots, jewelry, crochet hats and scarves, canned fruit and pickles, and wood burn jewelry boxes. I usually start early with what I am making for people.

Make sure you have wax paper to line your pan. And keep on eye on the chocolate chips and milk because it can burn easy. The recipe I use I found from google. Easy fudge recipes.
