Marshmallow Fudge Recipe from the Kitchen of April Clark Davis

Fudge-2

Every single year growing up we made fudge and toffee for Christmas to give to the neighbors. Our fudge is special because of it's unique flavor and the marshmallows that we freeze ahead of time so they don't melt into the fudge! It wasn't until I was teaching a friend how to make it that I realized how many parts of the recipe seemed more superstitious than necessary...but now that I have my own children OF COURSE I'm keeping all of the superstition-it's just more fun that way!
