Interested in rocking along with some Rocky Road Thick Fudge...NO bake? If any of those sound appealing to you, read on for they are only the beginning.

A Bit of Fudge History...
In 1886 a letter was found, written by Emelyn Bettersby Hartridge, a student at Vassar college in Poughkeepsie, New York, referring to fudge that her cousin had made, in Baltimore Maryland, selling it for 40 cents per pound. Hartridge was able to obtain the recipe and in 1888, she made 30 pounds of fudge for the Vassar College Senior Auction.In the late 19th century, some shops on Mackinac Island, Michigan, began to produce similar products as the Vassar College fudge, and sold it to summer vacationers. Fudge is still produced in some of the original shops there today.
