FANTASY FUDGE (it never fails)

 

I love CHRISTmas baking and cooking...it is one of those things that if I don't do then it just doesn't feel like CHRISTmas!  This fudge recipe is one I have been making for years and years and the reason is because it absolutely NEVER fails!   I change up the treats I make every year but fudge is always on the list.  

I made two batches this CHRISTmas season.  It is quick to make and it has such a smooth, rich, milk chocolate-y flavor!  I think I could eat an entire batch all by myself so I try to give most of it away so I don't gain 20 pounds over the holidays!

This year someone broke into my home and took half of my fudge.  My friend, Melissa Miller, called it a "fudge-muggin'"!  We had a description of the suspect...female, mid-twenties, long, brunette hair and a little pregnant round belly!  It sounded like someone I know....haha!

I hope you try this and I apologize for not posting this before Christmas but it's not too late for New Years! 

And one more little side note....I have thought about making a chocolate cake and icing it, then drizzling it with this fudge all around the edges...can you say "divine"?  I am going to do it...maybe for my 50th birthday in a few months!  Half a century deserves something really amazing and this would definitely be beyond amazing!!

Thanks for posting this for me. Somehow I'd lost my copy of it. It's a favorite in our family too! It never goes badly, except for that time.....oh well. Let's just say everyone loves it!
