Frosting Fudge
Chill, then store this fudge in the freezer. When taken from the freezer, it is cold, but creamy, so it can be served right away.

1 cup sifted confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon cream or milk, cold
1 container ready-made creamy frosting
1/2 to 1 teaspoon extract in a complementary flavor

Stir sugar, milk and frosting together, then add the flavoring of your choice. If you use juice or pre-melted chocolate or peanut butter, you may have to add more confectioners’ sugar to get the correct, thick consistency. Pour and place in the freezer. This can be stored in the freezer up to four months.

You may add chopped maraschino cherries, nuts, chips, or whatever you desire to the fudge.
