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.

If you love brownies and fudge, why not combine the two? Mix up a pan of these exquisite brownies for any holiday or special gatherings...or just when you want to treat yourself to the ultimate chocolate dessert.

"This fudge has become a family favorite because of the luscious blending of flavors," notes Debbie Purdue of Freeland, Michigan. "I try to make it for gifts at Christmastime." Use a candy thermometer or the cold-water test to make sure the mixture reaches soft-ball stage; then chill until set.
Anyone who's fond of chocolate will like this smooth, nutty fudge twice as much. I enjoy making several batches when Christmas rolls around. It doesn't last long at our house during the December festivities!
I am a substitute teacher and found this fudge recipe in a very old book in our school library. It was written before microwaves, so I modified it to make a quick treat. The faculty and staff gave it rave reviews. —Peggy Key, Grant, Alabama
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.”
