My grandmother's fudge recipe...just about the only one I'll eat. Keep it stored in an airtight container, it tends to dry out pretty easy. Please note the cook time includes the chill time.

Great recipe!!!! I was looking for a recipe for fudge that could be made out of pantry items. This is the perfect recipe. I admit that I am a stirrer and I really had to stuggle with not stirring, but I made it. Whew, it was tough. Anyway, I went exactly by the recipe except, I used walnuts instead of pecans. I will definately put this recipe in the keeper file.
