    I remember this fudge well! It appears in my mother’s recipe book as ‘Mima’s Fudge’ and was a special treat during my childhood. I now have the urge to make a batch!

      So lovely to hear from you, my cousin in Australia and that you share my memories of this delicious family heirloom! Mum used to make it every Christmas and it was a very special treat. No commercial fudge comes anywhere near it. 🙂
