Dairy State Fudge

Tammy Raynes


Add some interest to your candy and cookie trays with a white fudge. For best results, don't use low-fat or fat-free cream cheese.

Many years ago as a young girl I would go through recipe books and look at all the pretty pictures and imagine cooking that particular item. I found this one in a very old cookbook that I had. And after viewing the picture I decided I just had to try this.
