Church Fudge

Linda Edwards


an interesting ingredient - a delicious fudge

Recipe is from Augusta, Ga., caterer Jane Hall Harmon(former Baton Rouge resident who shared this recipe with BR Advocate readers.) She says, “I call this recipe Church Fudge because I found it in a giant church cookbook that I bought at a garage sale for $1 about 20 years ago." Personal note: I was skeptical about trying the Velveeta cheese. However, the fudge was delicious.
