Hey Kittencal, this was terrific and got many compliments...even from a sis-in-law that doesn't care for fudge! (i noticed her munching on more than one piece..lol) I made a double batch for the holidays, and the only thing I changed was to use choc chips instead of the vanilla chips. It was even better a day or two later. Your recipe saved the day since I couldn't find my old one and sooo easy to make. Thanks, my friend!
