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.

MMMMMM! This was really great and so delicious :) I used to get fudge from the little fudge shops on the Jersey shore and this was defianatly similar. I think I stirred mine one too many times as it came out a little crumbly, but it was still perfectly edible LOL. Thanks for posting this recipe and I can't wait to try your other fudge recipes. Made for PAC Fall 09.
