Shortly before Christmas 2007 my husband and I were cleaning out the attic when I ran across an old Christmas present from 1977. I couldn't resist re-gifting it to the original recipient. It was a present made by my step-daughter, Beth for her sister Renee. They all got a big kick out of it and Beth remembered painting it all those years ago. My family all enjoy chocolate and fudge is a favorite at Christmas time. This recipe is easy and always good. Don't be fooled by the ingredients - it's delicious!
