I make this fudge at Christmastime to give to friends and neighbors. That tradition started years ago when I made more candy than my husband, three sons and I could eat, so we shared it. It's a tasty tradition I'm glad to continue. -Betty Grantham, Hanceville, Alabama

"I have been making this for several years. I typically leave out the nuts but it is still very good."

"This is a foolproof recipe! I've made this for years and always get rave reviews, and comments on the creaminess of the fudge. Thank you for sharing this recipe."

"Recipe sounds wonderful and I will try it, but this recipe is not Mamie Eisenhower's Million Dollar Fudge. I have a card with the original recipe that was printed in the Women's National Press Club's "Who Says We Can't Cook!" At that time copies could be purchased for two dollars plus fifteen cent postage. Lucy"
