Linda's notes for this recipe:
This is a family favorite, especially with my grandchildren. I usually make them a stocking filled with homemade goodies every year at Christmas. This is definitely their favorite. So rich and wonderfully good.

Add vanilla and nuts and beat until thick and penuche loses its gloss.

Angela, thanks for posting this recipe! I had one from my favorite Aunt. She and I would make this fudge at least twice a year. She also taught me to cook many things. Spent many happy hours with her in her kitchen or my kitchen. All those memories came rushing back when I read this recipe. I lost my copy of hers and this is going to make many memories when I make this fudge for my family!
