    My mother makes this all the time. When I was a little girl, she would make it Christmas eve. The smell, for me, is what Christmas should smell like.

      This was so outstanding! It reminded me exactly of the no bake cookies that I make, but wonderful creamy texture instead of oatie. I love it and so does my whole family. It was intended for a cookie exchange, but my family refuses to let it go!

      This fudge turned out a lot smoother than my usual recipe. Next time I'll add a little less sugar. It didn't fill out the 8x8 pan, next time I'll just use a smaller pan. Also it hardens quickly, so smooth it into the pan right away. Yum!
