Fudge

This is my mom’s famous fudge recipe.   She made it every year at Christmas time growing up and it was by far my favorite.  I finally got around to making this over Christmas and it was so easy and great tasting just like I remembered.  Seriously, I think I might make this more often it’s that addicting.

square baking pan with foil.  That way, when the fudge has hardened, you can lift it straight up out of the baking dish, and makes for easier cutting.
