Every year, my mom made me fudge for my birthday for as long as I can remember. Now she's passed the whisk to my sister. It's always the same recipe, one my mother cut out of a newspaper in the seventies. And it is the most amazing fudge I've ever had, one of my favorite foods in the whole wide world. Yes, there are all sorts of memories mixed in there, but it's exceptionally tasty, not too sweet and really satisfying. It's even a little healthy—the oats have fiber and various minerals, and the peanut butter adds protein.
I'm looking forward to enjoying a batch on Friday, my birthday. I like it refrigerated. If you try it, let me know what you think!
