Mocha Nut Fudge

IMG_2666

I’ve never had luck making fudge, until now. I know the rules of candy making and the weather, but for some reason my fudge is always too soft and never taste right. I can safely tell you this recipe is awesome. It’s easy and quick, you just have to put a little arm muscle into it and it’ll come out perfect! Can’t wait to make this in my Christmas baskets.

The only change I made was I used pecans instead of walnuts.
