This recipe has been in our family for over three decades. It was a recipe we kept close to our hearts. It was truly a family favorite. At one time, my brother started a business selling our famous family fudge. It was not until December 2011 that I received permission from family members to share this recipe with the public. Then I decided to submit it to Utah Valley Magazine's Holiday Dessert Contest. I was thrilled when I won and had the fun experience of being featured in the December Issue.
