Four-Chip Fudge Recipe

I stir up this wonderful creamy fudge every Christmas. My friend Marlene gave me the recipe years ago, and I've passed it on to everyone who tries it. Flavored with four different kinds of chips, this is the best fudge I've ever tasted! -Delores Wigginton, Prudenville, Michigan

"This is the easiest, tastiest and best fudge recipe ever! I have been making this for work for 8-10 years, since the recipe was published. Now my company is closing this Christmas and everyone is requesting this fudge "One more time"! It is a Christmas tradition and so good. I stretch mine by putting it in a 15" cookie sheet. Depending on how you cut, you can get over 100 pieces. Not too thick. Love it!"

"This fudge is a non-negotiable family tradition at our home. I make a batch at the beginning of December and another one closer to Christmas Day. I love that it is easy - just melt and mix and still so delicious! The 2 non-chocolate chips as well as the almond extract make it very unique without being weird!"
