 Christmas Candy!  Skillet Chocolate Fudge

Skillet Chocolate Fudge

Christmas Candy or any candy is not in my repertoire, however this was one recipe which was begging to be tried.  Skillet Chocolate Fudge is an old recipe found in a box of recipes stored and forgotten.  It is easy and quick; it does not use a candy thermometer to know when it is ready.  Using the electric skillet at 280 F  does it for you.  

                                         Here is Skillet Chocolate Fudge!

How can you turn a cookie with molasses, whole wheat flour, wheat germ, old fashion  rolled oats and raisins as a bad cookie for you?  You forget there is shortening, pecans, chocolate chips and coconut flavoring.
