Sea-Salted Fudge

When this time of year rolls around I always have a long list of things I want to make.  I succeed at a handful & then vow to do the rest the next year.  Sometimes that actually happens & sometimes I only get around to making the holiday staples.   There is one thing that I never fail to make – Fudge.  My mom passed this recipe down to me years ago.  She is known for her fudge- it’s AH-MAZ-ING!!!  It’s always creamy, decadent & rich.  I always make sure that I make at least one batch each year since we don’t live close enough for me to get some of hers.  Try it!!  If you make it for people their eyes will roll into the back of their head as they savor the goodness.  They will have another & another- as they keep saying they have to stop…but they just can’t.  This happens to me every time I make this for any gathering.  The container is always empty by the time we leave.  This year I made a double batch & sent half of it to the firehouse.  The boys were so happy.

    As soon as I saw the title, I knew I had to make a comment on this post. Only a year ago, found out there was sea salted chocolate bars. When we were at one of the wineries in Napa, one of them wanted us to try their red wine with a small piece of the salted chocolate. He was persistent,,,so we said okay. We were amazed what the combination of the two… did to our taste buds. Just amazing. I bet your fudge has that same effect☺ Thanks for sharing.
