"Oh Fuddgge" Fudge


When I think of fudge, I think of Ralphie in "A Christmas Story" who slips and says a swear word when helping his father change a tire. This delicious creamy fudge recipe came from my friend Karen's mom, Marge. It uses less sugar than most fudge recipes and is easy to make. Watch "A Christmas Story" and enjoy a creamy piece of fudge!
