    I live all of the ideas, the opportunity to make something homemade & economical too, since I insist my teens pay for their own gifts. It teaches them the importance of giving along with the idea to spend frugally. Thanks Danielle!!

    The fudge idea is great! Is it hard to get the fudge out? Could you grease the sides?
