I found this recipe in the 2010 TOH Grand Prize winners, came here to post and it was already here! This was very easy and very sweet - tastes just like a giant praline. Thanks for posting the latest addition to my Christmas cookie tray!
great fudge and easy too! this is sweet so a small piece goes a long way, thanks for sharing hon, I am sending this home with my peanut butter-loving DS!...Kitten:)
Very easy to make. So far, I have only tasted a very small piece clinging to a spoon. It was great. Can't wait for the rest to cool.
