I came up with this recipe last Christmas when my daughter felt left out because “everyone” got to have fudge but her. (Never mind that she had more non-fudge goodies than Mrs. Claus’ candy kitchen!) I am sharing the recipe here so that other children (of all ages) can also have their fudge and eat it, too.

In a medium saucepan, mix together cocoa, sugar, brown sugar, flour, baking soda and salt.
Add in eggs and mix a bit (parts will still be dry.)
Add butter, and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly. When butter is melted and mixture starts to bubble, remove from heat. Add in vanilla. Pour into greased, 8″ square pan. Press nuts (chopped or whole) into top, if desired. Cool.
*Although many people who can’t have dairy are okay with butter, some are not. To make this completely dairy free, use coconut oil instead, and refrigerate the fudge before cutting into squares.
