AP Family Recipe: Mom’s Christmas Fudge
We love tried-and-true recipes that have become treasured traditions in home kitchens, and there is no better time to enjoy them than during the holidays. Danielle Kissee, who is the wife of Josh Kissee (co-owner of Alison’s Pantry) and is also an Alison’s Pantry Rep, shared this delectable family recipe with us for her mom’s amazing fudge. As Danielle says, “This fudge recipe is superb! The texture is creamy, not greasy or grainy, and it holds its shape. It looks like the professionals made it and it tastes as if heaven were in the form of a sweet, brown square of delectable goodness melting between your fingers!”
