As Sarahbeth's mom I agree that it is the best fudge ever, and really pretty easy. The key is boiling time. This was actually passed on from my mom. So now there are three generations of our family who make this each year!
I'm so glad you posted this recipe because everyone always loves it and it's almost exactly like my Mom's! Hers was called See's Fudge and my sis and I couldn't figure out for the longest time who See was ... Only recently did we decide the recipe came from See's Candies. That one equalled a half recipe of yours, with the only differences being less sugar and more vanilla; i.e., for 1/2 recipe we use 2 cups sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla. Everyone should try this - it's SO GOOD!! Thanks, Sara Beth!
Wonderful and easy, I have had this recipe for years, and decided to see if anyone on Zaar had posted it, so I wouldn't have to search far and wide for my yellowed newspaper clipping! Don't you just love zaar!!!! Thanks for posting, and all of you wondering if you should try it....DO! You won't be sorry, Thanks for posting SarahBeth!!
