When my mother died, my brother was still living in the house. When he moved, he sold everything without telling me and all my mothers' recipes were in the stove drawer. I could have killed my brother because the one thing that meant the most to me in that drawer was her Heavenly Hash recipe. I've been searching since then for something close, cause I always got home from school just as she was finishing the fudge. I sure miss hers. So this is kind of close to it. I got it from a NOPSI cookbook they printed and sent out free at the early part of the introduction of the cookbook. The recipes used to be furnished in a little brochure they had in the buses and street cars. I still wish I had my mother's recipe. All our family liked it and she made a large amount around the holidays for when the family came over.
