“I make this fudge at Christmas time and give it to neighbors and friends in holiday tins. It is very sweet! When I was a little girl, my parents used to take us to Mexican restaurant called Monterey House, and under the chips they would put a candy that tasted similar to this fudge. My sister and I didn't like Mexican when we were little, but we loved the candy! I'm not sure about the prep-time, so don't hold me to it.”
