Grandmother’s Fudge

“As I was going through all the family recipes, I realized that the fudge recipes from both of my grandmothers were the same. I think it is pretty cool that something so wonderful came from both sides of the family.” – April Ferre

“I fondly remember Sunday afternoons with the kids making fudge after church.” – Jean Hansen
