George's Fudge

This recipe from George makes a LOT of fudge. It is similar to Memere's Fudge but I think that it will need a slightly larger pan to accommodate all the ingredients. There was no second page to the recipe so... the second page is from another fudge recipe. It should be accurate information except that there is no pan size.

The recipe calls for condensed milk. I like Pet Milk Brand Condensed milk. They have some delicious mouthwatering recipes! Right mouse click on the Pet Milk can to navigate to their website. You will find all the recipes shown in the photo.
