No other fudge I've tasted comes close to the smooth, chocolate taste of this recipe, which my mother-in-law introduced me to one Christmas (I've never been able to make it as good as she does, though). Since it makes such a large batch, I always save some for last-minute gifts.
"I make this festive fudge year-round, but especially at Christmastime," writes Denise Hanson of Anoka, Minnesota. "I've brought it to many different occasions and am asked for the recipe every time. I've also entered it in our local fair and won the blue ribbon!"
Bonnie Ayars teaches family and consumer science in Mechanicsburg, Ohio and says this simple but scrumptious fudge is a hit with her high school students. Best of all, with only 5 ingredients, it couldn’t be easier to make!
BONNIE’S TIP: “This recipe can be made with the candy bar of your choice. Snickers, Milky Way and Heath Bars make delicious variations.”
I've been making this easy and delicious fudge for Christmas for the last 20 years. It's great to give as a gift. For variation, I sometimes add mint chips or extract. —Sherry Hamilton, Florissant, Missouri
