Blueberry Pie Fudge

All your favorite flavors in one perfect square? Blueberry Pie Fudge is almost too good to be true, but the taste is real. Sweet-tart blueberry jam complements the creamy white chocolate – with vanilla wafer cookies for a little buttery texture. If you love a chocolate-citrus pairing, just add finely grated orange, lemon or lime zest to get the extra kick you crave. Blueberry Pie Fudge also makes a great gift, so don’t hesitate to double the batch and share the love!
