Strawberry Swirl Fudge

Strawberry Swirl Fudge

We love easy-to-make fudge! This Strawberry Swirl Fudge is an easy one-pan fudge that anyone can make and is perfect for Valentine's Day or any holiday. The best part is that you can easily substitute the strawberry for another flavor and the red for another color to customize for any occasion or holiday as you see fit!
