Easy Fudge Recipes

The inspiration for this fudge came from a box of chocolate covered salted cashews that my sister in law brought me a while back. They were so irresistible and I had the idea to make that flavor combination into a delicious candy to enjoy for the holidays.

It is rich and so creamy and the cashews add a delicious crunch. Add it to your list to try and let me know how it turns out for you!
