Rocky Road fudge is an ideal gift for holidays (1975)
By Winnifred Jardine, Deseret News (Salt Lake City, Utah) Dec 23, 1975
Original recipes are rare, but this one of Sherry Linebaugh’s for Rocky Road Fudge is just that!
True, the inspiration came from a couple of other recipes she had previously tried. But it was her creativity and originality that combined the best of both, to produce this delicious and unusual candy.
The recipe is large (makes five pounds or more), but the fudge freezes well. And because she gives it away as Christmas gifts and uses it almost solely as her own Christmas candy. Sherry has never found it too big.
Her friends who have shared her recipe have dubbed it “No-Fail Fudge.” Now she shares the recipe with you readers, and we hope you will find it “no-fail” too!
