When I got married, a lady at my parents’ church gave me this version of a popular Michigan treat. I sometimes pipe a bit of frosting on each piece for decoration during the holidays. —Kristen Ekhoff, Akron, Indiana

"Even though not exactly Mackinac fudge - close enough to make me happy. Grew up vacationing there my entire childhood. Live far away now - was nice to share a taste and some memories with my adult children. The platter was gone in less than 24 hours. Glad I tucked some away for Christmas day :-)"

"Use a recipe that indicates the temperature needed during cooking, before adding marshmallows. Evidently mine was too hot when I added the chocolate because the chocolate broke and the fudge was ruined."
