"These were GREAT! I served them to a big group of my friends, everyone liked them, and thought I had spent a long time making a fancy fudge, not believing it was a simple recipe and so easy!. I left out the nuts and added about a tsp of peppermint extract. These will be a new Christmas tradition!"
