Kids can practically make this fudge recipe by themselves. Just don't let them eat it alone. The steps move along quickly, so read the recipe carefully before starting and have all the tools and ingredients ready.
Instead of using a loaf pan, pour a double batch of fudge into a lined and greased 9-by-13-inch pan; let cool, remove from pan, then cut with cookie cutters. The fudge will keep at room temperature for 10 days in an airtight container.
You can use cookie cutters to delight your loved ones with fudge shaped as snowflake or bite-size "drops." For the snowflakes, dust the fudge with confectioners' sugar.
