Bobbe's Best Microwave Fudge

Bobbe Leviten


I originally got this recipe from my mom, who found it in one of those little product brochures; this one for the California Pistachio Growers, I believe.

The original recipe called for 2 tsp vanilla and 1/4 tsp pistachio extract. I have always just used vanilla, 2-1/4 tsp, but at Christmas, I like to use peppermint extract as well, reducing the vanilla to 2 tsp and adding 1/4 tsp of peppermint extract!

Use your imagination!
