Christmas wouldn’t be the same without special chocolate treats – and chocolate fudge is definitely one of them. Here is a recipe that is easy to make and again – it is one you can make ahead of time anf store it in an airtight container. Watch for the nuts in this recipe – you can make the fudge without them if you worry about your guests who may have allergies.
