Some 17 years ago, when I was dating the man who is now my husband, his mother gave me this recipe for his favorite fudge. It's a tasty treat that's so simple to make.

"Made this for the first time this year. Very easy to make, but it is VERY sweet. I could only eat a small bite. Everyone at work loved it though."

"This fudge is great. I cannot believe that some of the reviews said it was too sweet. Don't they know fudge is supposed to be very sweet .This recipe is excellent. If they do not want sweet they need to not make fudge."

"Wish I could give this recipe more than 5 stars! We made fudge to give to our neighbors for Christmas. One of our friends sent us a thank you note saying the last piece of fudge created martial strife as they negotiated for the last piece! LOL

The fudge was very easy to make and one batch makes a ton. We keep thinking about this fudge so I have a feeling we won't wait until Christmas to make it again!"

"I know this recipe from one of my Mom's old cookbooks (Mamie Eisenhower's Fudge) and have been making it for many years. I make a dark chocolate version of this fudge for my Mom, just change the chocolates, you can also add dried fruits instead or with the nuts. In the dark version, dried craisins, cherries are delicious (at least according to my Mom-it's her favorite). To Encscally-there are two reasons that fudge will not set: one is the boil, meaning the boil should be a full scale boil, all across the top, then immediately reduce the heat; second humid conditions-any kind of dampness, even cold dampness can mess with this type of fudge--could be from a humidifier, the outdoor weather, even the dishwasher. I hope that helps. Thanks so much for posting the recipe, its an old recipe and its sad how many of those get lost, also I will forward it to my son, so that I don't have to type my own and it's many variations--"
