This is my Grandma Klepper's fudge recipe with variations. I LOVE Christmas, seriously I look forward to next Christmas on the current Christmas season, if I could, I would leave my Christmas tree up all year long, but people may think I'm crazy. I love to cook so Christmas time at our house is full of surprises! I like to try new things and create new recipes, so I took my grandmothers recipe and tweeted it alittle to make this AMAZING gumdrop fudge recipe! Merry Christmas and Enjoy!!
