My manager at work, who knows I like to try new treat recipes, shared this one with me. I've made this chewy and chocolaty fudge many times since. Packed with nuts and caramel, it's like a candy bar. Everyone who's tried it loves it. -Lois Freeman, Oxford, Michigan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 8, 2011

I had the magazine that this was originally in and lost it. This is so easy and excellent tasting. I always make at least one batch to give away and another for the house.

So simple, so nummy! I didn't have peanuts so I used chopped pecans. Remindful of the turtles I make at Christmas -- but so much easier! This is a keeper!
