Red hot cinnamon fudge

Even when I was a kid I had a soft spot for fudge. We would make it for almost any holiday, and, often, we would play around with flavors and mix-ins. For Valentine’s Day, I wanted to take my favorite spicy cinnamon candy and mix it into creamy fudge. This treat is easy to throw together and is the perfect Valentine’s Day treat for your family.
