    Perfect 1" Squares

    No, not for a postage stamp quilt, but for fudge! Here's a simple holiday tip: Turn your block of fudge out onto a cutting board. Use a ruler and a pizza wheel cutter to cut perfect 1" squares - I just finished cutting 5# of fudge--kinda like cutting fabric, but the leftovers taste better! LOL
    To QUILT is human.
    To FINISH is divine.

    Fudge at Christmas time. I will make it closer to the holiday, otherwise I would eat it.

    I LOVE fudge!..especially if it's made with cocoa powder. I'm thinking more like 2" squares, maybe 3"! Your cutting method would work with those sizes as well. Think I'll go make some fudge. Thanks for the good idea.

    I make fudge every year at Christmas time. May have to try this method for cutting as mine are sometimes slightly wobbly looking. Can't cut straight without a ruler.

    Isn't the greatest? I started using my 3" ruler for fudge cutting a few years ago. Since I make, and give away about 5 batches every year, (9x13 pans), this is such a hand saver for me. Thanks for sharing this idea on the board.

    What a "sweet" idea!!! I have turned out brownies and cut them with a long knife. Same with the dough for rum balls. I guess my pizza cutter has a new job now.
