Foolproof Fudge

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Toby Jermain

This is my wife's fudge recipe, and she's been making it as long as I have known her. The unsweetened chocolate is my idea, but she prefers it without. I like the more bitter flavor. Prep time does not include time to cool and set.

This fudge is great. The best one I have found. Grands love it, so make at least once a month. All day job, some want semi-sweet choc.So make both. So easy to make also........Thanks Toby
