Not all of Grandma's recipes are time-consuming--her fast fudge proves it! She stirred up a batch for us grandkids every time we visited. Now, I'm carrying on the tasty tradition for my family whenever we want a quick chocolate treat with a peanut butter twist.
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.

Three of the season's best flavors-nuts, chocolate and peppermint-combine in a delightful manner in this scrumptious fudge. The two distinct layers are eye-catching-another reason why this candy makes a great holiday gift.
Whenever I taste these rich, delicious layered bars, I think of my childhood. My parents were missionaries in Thailand, and Mother was able to get these common ingredients there - the squares reminded us of the candy bars back home.
