This was my mother’s fudge recipe that she used to make every Christmas for our family. It was always a treat to be able to help her pick the chocolate bars and to break up the bars to help her make the recipe. It felt like Christmas season started when she made the fudge for us. It is by far the best fudge I have ever had.
