    I’m not the best baker/dessert maker in the world, so when I needed a dessert to take to a Christmas party, I searched for something easy.

    This recipe hit the mark! It was SO easy to make and turned out so delicious! I came home with an empty pan.

    I opted for peanuts instead of almonds or walnuts. I used a 9×13 inch pan and while it was a little difficult to spread, I succeeded and it turned out perfect.

    Thank you for this easy and yummy dessert recipe!!

    This is the best recipe for fudge I have ever used. Very easy, quick, and delicious. This will be my go to for fudge from now on.

  3. I actually need to ask a question! I was asked to make this as a gift. Does it has to be stored in fridge or can it store on counter?

    Just made this it’s good but definitely use an 8×8 when in a 9×13 it’s way too thin.and hard to spread it in the 9×13

  5. Just found you site and must say I’m so impressed.  I saved several recipes and I love that you
    that you included crafts and other interests.  Well done! Evie


    Love the recipes you posted so far. My grandsons will probably love trying some of these. Thanks for the recipes.

    This was always my sweet Mother’s favorite.  I can remember going downtorm St. Louis with her and she would get a pound.  Great memories from long ago.  I am unsure if it was from Famous-Barr or Styx Baer and Fuller.
