Sometimes the best recipes make the best gifts, and in this case, they definitely make the sweetest. Why not whip up a batch of this maple-walnut fudge to gift to your favorite neighbors this year?

Before you begin, follow a few tips from My Recipes.

1. Read the recipe all the way through and assemble all the tools and ingredients you will need. Many candy recipes require that you act quickly once the sugar syrup reaches the desired temperature. Use care when working with hot sugar syrup, as it can cause severe burns.

2. Choose the right pans. Heavy-bottomed stainless steel pans are best for cooking sugar mixtures. Thin, lightweight pans tend to conduct heat--and cook sugar syrup--unevenly.

3. Use a candy thermometer when called for. They measure temperatures up to 400°. You'll find them in the kitchen-gadget section of many supermarkets, priced between $10 and $20.
