Mom’s Favorite Fudge and Holiday Travel

If you are away from your home on the holidays, like so many young families visiting parents, grandparents, and family, we hope this idea helps you.  We are Lucky Little Travelers ( a website dedicated to family travel. 

This is my favorite fudge recipe.  My family and I usually end up out of state, and away from home, during the holidays.  I like making up a few of our favorite treats and bring them with us.  I think this will help my children remember our family holidays as special.   Whether you make our favorite recipes, or take your own, make your children’s holiday happier by bring something you have made for them with you.  Package carefully and place into checked luggage.  Follow our instructions on for specially packing optional items so that nothing leaks into your suitcase and makes a mess.  We triple ziploc, put into a travel spacebag, and then into checked luggage.   For more travel advice please see our wesite

This was a commonly known fudge recipe during the 1950′, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.  My Grandmother, mother, and I have used this tried and true family pleaser.  I hope you make it and enjoy it!
