Fudge can be a bit of a bastard but the learning process can include all sorts of interesting results - Scottish Tablet being one.
As to Lavender it seems to work well as a flavouring - Mason's Lavender Gin for example, though I think of it as liquorice gin because of the flavour.

Candy everywhere, got chocolate in my hair,
Aching to get me.
Sticky sweet suckers in the Halloween air,
Aching to get me.
Saint Vitus dance on my molars tonight,
Aching to get me.
Aching to get me, get me oh...
Take it to the doc, I guess he ought to know,
La, da, da, da, da.
Which ones can stay, which ones gotta go.
La, da, da, da, da.
He looks in my mouth and then he starts to gloat.
He says my teeth are O. K.,
But my gums got to go.
Oh oh...
I come off the gas but I'm still seeing spies,
Aching to get me.
I can see them all through a pair of glassy eyes,
Aching to get me.
De Sade's gonna live in my mouth tonight,
La, da, da, da, da,
And the rotten tooth fairy is satisfied,
La, da, da, da, da,
Aching to get me, get me oh...

Fudge is great if you get it right :)
Seconded - I did vanilla fudge a while back which was a huge hit with the family. Will have to do that again.

I used to have a book, growing up, which was a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-themed recipe book. You could make suckable pencils, lickable wallpaper and all manner of funky other sweets - I'll have to see if I can find it!
