These vanilla cream filled, chocolate covered drops are often available around the holidays. Some stores carry them all year. Mix these sweet candies with peanut butter and a bit of butter then microwave and refrigerate for a easy to make treat. This page contains a Zachary's Crème Drops fudge recipe.

* Don't know what Zachary's Crème Drops are? You will find these in the candy isle of grocery stores, Wal-Mart or drug stores. They are in a "whiteish" looking bag about 6 inches high and about 4 inches wide. On the bag it shows a picture of the candy. They are rather cone shaped and are white crème on the inside and dipped in chocolate on the outside. They cost about $1.00 a bag. To eat them, they aren't very good, but the fudge that they produce is delicious.

Recently there was a recipe to make peanut fudge using Zacharys Creme Drops. I had a very difficult time locating them but finally found a Family Dollar store that carried them for $1 for a 12 oz bag. The recipe is absolutely wonderful and I gave it as gifts to friends. Yesterday I was in Walmarts & all of the holiday candy was marked down 50%. I found several bags of Zacharys Creme Drops for $ .47 each for the 12 oz. bag. The only thing that made them holiday candy was that the bag was decorated with a holiday motif. I purchased 6 bags and stuck them in my freezer. What an inexpensive batch of fudge and so easy to make & so good to eat.
