My Husband's Aunt Pat brought this recipe to a family gathering over the holidays. One Taste and I was hooked. This is so easy that even smaller children can make this with supervision. A co-worker told me she substituted Craisins for the raisins, and she was pleased with the results. I thought coconut might be a nice addition as well. Enjoy :)

This was very easy to make! I used mixed nuts since thats what I had on hand, and left out the rasins since my husband is not a fan of them. They are very tasty little snacks!

Wonderful change from the usual fudge! I used chocolate covered craisins instead of raisins but otherwise made as written. I'll need to hide this from myself (easy to do most days ;-) to have any left for my upcoming party. Thanks, my friend! Happy Holidays!
