This fudge is a favorite of mine it tastes just like an Andes mint candy but in the form of fudge, so very good. This fudge recipe is easy to make too. Most of the time spent on this recipe is cooling time the hands on time is quick. I love to make this candy recipe to share with my family and neighbors at Christmas. It’s always on my candy and cookie plates.
