After my mother passed away, I was cleaning out her recipe drawer and came upon this recipe clipped from a newspaper from 1968. One of the ingredients caught my eye, flour. I had never seen a fudge recipe with flour in it, so I had to give it a try. My family and I loved it and I added it to my Christmas candy list. Every one who has tried it had demanded the recipe. This makes a pretty white fudge. Prep. and cook time approximate.
