This is our family's favorite candy recipe. It was given to me many years ago by a friend when we went on a bus trip to Branson, Missouri. She had made the fudge and brought it with her. It's just out of this world. I like it best with pecans or walnuts in it, but you can do what you choose. Enjoy!
