Searched "Creamy Fudge" and this is. So quick and better tasting than the condensed milk recipe. People always tinker and adjust, I am no exception. I completely skipped coffee and nuts. It took an extra step as i put chocolate mix into my stand mixer, wow - fast! Delicious. Happy Christmas!

Very quick and tastey! This set up soft but not overly so. Not to sweet. I am thinking this might be a hit at the holiday party Sat. Thanks!
