I like to make this fudge with dark chocolate and nuts added; it reminds me of the "Chunky" candy bars we had when we were kids. The only problem is once I start eating this fudge, there is no stopping me! For those who aren't too fond of raisins, you can omit them and just add the nuts. Great recipe all the way around!

SKIP THE RAISINS!

The fudge itself was WONDERFUL! I like raisins and thought that I might like them with chocolate. The taste combination was just okay for me. My husband on the other hand, really liked them. Hence, the average rating - we basically averaged it out between us! So, this is one recipe you will have to try to see if you like it! In our house, we had two differing opinions!
