Grandma's Fudge

I love this fudge. And I think I love it because it reminds me of my grandma. She always made this for Christmas and whenever I make it all the memories of her just flood back. She was an amazing cook, loved to shop (and took us shopping), never left the house without make-up and would do anything for anyone. Not to get all sappy but I still think of her often and know she’s up in heaven keeping us safe.

Now to the fugde…
