Vanilla Fudge Recipe

I’m not a big fan of fudge I find it can be sickly and gritty, but I made some fudge before Christmas as part of a hamper for my family and when I tasted some it was hands down the best fudge I’ve ever tasted. Buttery smooth melt in your mouth and none of that horrid graininess I dislike so…
