One of my favorite places to visit every summer is Mackinac Island. Two of my favorite things to do while on the island is ride my bike around the perimeter of the island and then walk through town going in and out of all of the fudge shops looking for free samples. I'm so happy I found this recipe so I can make my own fudge between visits up north. I bought this recipe booklet called Mackinac Fudge Recipes for my cookbook swap partner. I hope she doesn't mind me posting a few of the recipes here on Zaar.

I'm glad I saved this PAC recipe for last, as it was so delicious. Made as directed and totally enjoyed. This will be a new keeper fudge recipe for the holidays. Thanks Queenie, made for PAC Spring 2009!

It's my 1st time to make this so I didn't know exactly when to take them out so they settled quite fast.So what I did was form them into fudge balls instead. It's very sweet and I made this for DH. He jokingly calls it uhmm another name as it resembles something for him and he said, "I didn't know that these taste good." then he brought the whole thing with him! Thanks for sharing this, QB!Made for PAC fall 2008.
