Vanilla Bean Fudge

Gone are the days of pumpkin and apple.  Bring on all things gingerbread, cinnamon and sugar, peppermint…and fudge.  Fudge is one of the easiest things to make.  It is a great dessert to bring to a party or give it to someone as a gift.  So I decided to make Vanilla Bean Fudge by Shugary Sweets to kick off my holiday baking!  Well actually, I tried to make gingerbread fudge to kick off my holiday baking.  But I was not crazy about how it came out so I won’t get into it.

This past summer, I bought a bunch of vanilla beans to make homemade vanilla extract.  I haven’t used them since then so that was another reason I wanted to make this fudge.
