I found this recipe on 'Taste Of Home'. It's the most delicious and decadent fudge ever! Family and I loved it!

*Instead of using butter or margarine, I just used nonstick cooking spray.

I didn't have a 9-inch square pan, so I had to use a 8 X 8-inch one; probably why it didn't turn out that neatly, but it's still just as delicious!
