The heart of the giver makes the gift dear and precious. ~ Martin Luther
For Church the Kiddos wanted to give everyone a little gift, but I also had to bring a little food item as well. So, I brought ham and then brought these sweet little treats.
We made the easiest and cheapest Hershey's Double Decker Fudge.
It came out of my Hershey Recipe Book.
We poured the fudge into our cookie cutters.
.... still pouring so we can fill them up JUST before we tried to make them somewhat pretty
Chocolate on one side, peanut butter on the other...
All wrapped up!
