My Christmas Fudge Recipe

My Christmas Fudge Recipe

This fudge is virtually foolproof and so creamy you won't believe it. I've searched for years for the richest fudge, and this one does it for me. You can add just about anything you like to customize it.—Barbara Miller, Oakdale, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 10 min. + cooling YIELD:96 servings

Ingredients

  • 4-1/2 cups sugar

Directions
