This fudge is absolutely amazing! I have been sneaking pieces of this every time I pass my fridge since I made it a couple of days ago.
This recipe is really easy to make, and doesn't involve any complicated candy making (which is always a bonus!). The recipe originally said to strain the mixture to remove the remaining candy bits, but I loved the small pieces of crunch that the little candy bits produced in the fudge when I didn't strain mine.
This recipe is from marthastewart.com, and I strongly recommend that you make this for your next Christmas party. I absolutely love this stuff!
