    QueenBee49444's Note:

    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.

      OH YUM! It's been years since I've made real, from scratch, old fashioned fudge & this recipe does not disappoint! I had a crazy time cooking as my new pans are too wide at the top to clip the candy thermometer on so I had to hold a top-heavy digital thermometer in the chocolate the whole time! It was about 11pm when I finally got the fudge into the pan to cool & then went to bed. It's a bit dried out this morning & didn't cut into perfect squares, but it still tastes delicious! I'll be making it again. I forgot what I was missing all these years of making marshmallow fluff fudge. :)
