With Variations....My mother in law always sends us various flavors of fudge for Christmas. The package can get prety expensive so she gave me the recipes so I could make them myself.

This is the only way I make fudge. I don't like even the stuff from candy stores. I was going to try the marshmallow version and forgot. Will try next time. Great directions - I used microwave. My 9 yo did most of it. I love the idea of lining the pan and lifting it out after chilled. Easy to handle and no pan to clean! LOL
