Old Fashioned Chocolate Fudge is everything a homemade fudge should be, so get your candy thermometer ready.
I have been searching and searching for the chocolate fudge that I had tasted when I was about 8 or 10 years old, if you can believe that! It figures my biggest memory was food.
This fudge melted in your mouth and was just a little bit crumbly.

I can remember going to the Christmas Bazaar at the Church on Saturday afternoon with a couple of my school friends.
I bought my dime bag of chocolate fudge and I still remember thinking “this is the best thing I have ever eaten”.
And when we went back to get another bag, the lady was sold out. A sad day for me.
