Mocha Fudge

My mom used to make batches of fudge every Christmas along with tons of Christmas cookies.

I have a habit of making untested recipes for holidays. Sometimes it works out great and often times they only turn out so so! My family aren’t very picky though.

I have a fancy double oven and 5 burner range in our new house. It does make me more efficient! I baked brownies and a batch of cookies at the same time for the first time ever. Now only if our refrigerator would arrive…
