Grudge Fudge


Quite a few years ago a friend I worked at the Clackamas Fred Meyer store.  And one of the employees I worked with gave me a recipe for the absolutely easiest fudge recipe I have ever made.  No marshmallows, no stovetop cooking, quick, and easy.  Not really sure where the name came from, but it’s SO worth it.!

[I'll make some this weekend, and post some pictures, but wanted to post these, so you could make them for your holiday event!]
