    Here are some other ideas for different flavors: For peanut butter fudge: omit chocolate chips and use peanut butter chips instead. Add 1/3 cup peanut butter when you add the chips. For mint chocolate chip fudge: omit the chocolate chips and use mint chocolate chips or 12 oz. chopped Andes mint candies. For white fudge: omit chocolate chips and use white chocolate instead. You can add dried cherries or cranberries for a twist instead of the nuts.
