My great-grandmother was known for her amazing recipes - unfortunately, she rarely wrote them down. This peppermint fudge recipe was one of the ones she did pass down to my grandmother, who then passed it down to my mother. My mom makes it every year at Christmas time, and it's a favorite among family and friends. Don't let the simplicity tell you otherwise - it's definitely the best recipe of its kind!
