Eula's notes for this recipe:
This candy takes my family and friends back to our childhood days. Mom would go in the kitchen after dinner and put this together in about 10 minutes. It's a staple at all our family get together's.

I hope this simple fudge will take you back to childhood!

You need to put a photo in the box! I would like to see what it looks like before I make it! Do you put any vanilla extract in the recipe?

Soory, I don't have a picture. Yes, VANILLA EXTRACT, does go in the receipe as listed. It's very good...Don't think a picture would stop me from making this. It's fast and easy. Everyone that has tasted this candy loves it! You wouldn't like it if you're not a choc lover!!!
