    zoegirl21's Note:

    I found this in an ancient Betty Crocker cookbook- the novel with the cover half ripped off and corners extremely worn, on my grandma's cookbook shelf. She was going to throw it away, until we found this recipe. My grandma complains about something always going wrong with her fudge. But, with this...no complaints. It comes out perfect- and very addicting- every time.

      After trying several fudge recipes, I finally settled on this one. Our kids loved it, and so did their friends. Viva la fudge.
