Old Fashioned Chocolate Fudge

Fudge just screams Christmas to me every year. Growing up I always remember a dear family friend bringing us a package of homemade fudge all wrapped up and calling my name. It's such a good little treat and I love pinching off a little piece here and there to nibble through the day. Fudge is also a great neighborhood gift for friends to wish them a Merry Christmas!

Tuesday, little Miss L made two 100’s on her tests so we were talked into heading out for ice cream...
