This is a family recipe that my mother and grandmother used when I was growing up. I have used it with my culinary arts students at North Hagerstown High School.
Usually, we prepare this recipe around Easter when the students prepare boxes of candies for their family and friends. They make chocolate-covered peanut butter balls as well as molded chocolates with this recipe of Quick and Easy Fudge. The students are thrilled when they are able to make fudge so easily, and they also like how wonderful it tastes.
I have received several compliments on the chocolates, and parents have sent me thank-you notes. They were pleased with the box of candy and how professional it looked.
