I like to think that everyone has eaten fudge at one point or another in their life. Marg’s Classic Fudge recipe brings me back to my childhood. She was an old friend of my mom’s and she used to make this fudge for us as kids.

Nothing fancy or gourmet like you find in stores these days. Just a good old fashioned fudge recipe. Super easy to make as long as you have a candy thermometer handy.

Now if you do prefer a Gourmet Fudge, I seriously recommend Rick’s Peanut Butter Fudge. Yummy!
