This recipe was posted for the British Isles Culinary Cruise 2009. It comes from the Isle of man Community Website: It is traditionally made and sold at the Tynwald Fair, which is the oldest surviving fair on the Isle of Man. It is still held at the village of St. John's every 5th July. The chocolate probably came into the recipe because smugglers along the coast introduced exotic foods and spices. This fudge has a smooth, chocolatey flavor with a hint of honey.
