It’s time again for The Ultimate Recipe Challenge hosted by The Kim Six Fix. This month our theme is chocolate, my favorite!
I first tried these fudge squares several years ago in Chicago when my mother in law made them for the kids. They’re sweet and rich, and one was definitely enough for the kids.
Now the grown ups, we each had, well, more than one, ha!
I asked her for the fudge recipe that day, and she admitted it wasn’t even one of her own, but that of a dear friend Marilyn. I don’t know the origins of the recipe beyond that. But I cherish the handwritten recipe card that she wrote it on. It’s been well loved and used over the years.
I make these frequently, they’ve been requested at several birthday and family events.
The ingredients are simple, and I’ve actually used less sugar a few times when I’ve made them. It doesn’t change the taste much by doing so.
The one important tip I’ve learned is that the fudge needs to stay cool until it’s time to serve, so it starts to get messy.
