I grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin, so it's only natural I have a lot of recipes that use dairy ingredients. Our farm also had a lot of hickory trees, so we always made this fudge with hickory nuts. I make this candy nearly every Christmas. You'll find it's hard to eat just one piece.

"This is not very good fudge. It is creamy but tasteless. There is no sugar or vanilla extract present in the recipe. If you are going to make this take my advice and add at least 1-2 cups of sugar and 1 to 2 tsp. of vanilla and/or 1/2 tsp. of almond extract."

"I tried this first over Christmas at my sister's--she'd make it. It was delicious and highly complimented by many attending. I was delighted to find out it was a taste of home recipe since I could get right on here and save a copy. I may make it for Valentine's Day for my family! Yum :)"

"I cut this recipe out of Country years ago and have used it dozens of times, mostly around the holidays. It's always a favorite of my family as well as friends who get a candy tray from me. I 've given out the recipe many times. I usually double it in a 9x13 pan. I prefer smooth and melty chips for the white chocolate. Great recipe!"
