I made this recipe last night, but added 1/2 of premium cocoa at the end with the icing sugar. This is by far the best and easiest fudge I've made yet! I will definitely use this recipe again.

This is good fudge, however it is NOT The Mackinac Island Fudge recipe. While I can not give the recipe, it has corn syrup in it.

As yummy as this fudge is, it's not the fudge I get at the shops on the island or in the Soo and St. Ignace. I grew up on Lake Huron not far from the island and I've had them all many many times. lol :)
