Would you believe this is a recipe we made in my 9th grade home economics class? They don't even teach that any more. I still make this fudge because it is the "old timey fudge", which I prefer over the quick fudge.

I'm guessing that my teacher called it "college" fudge hoping to encourage us all to go to college.
