Oh my goodness, this Toll House Famous Fudge recipe was AWESOME! I made Christmas gifts for some family members and this fudge was the hit of the giveaways. I topped each box with some festive ribbon and a sticker saying, “Toll House Famous Fudge”. Presentation is everything you know.

That delicious chocolate dessert made from a chocolate chip cookie recipe. The name “tollhouse” supposedly came from the cookies used to make this fudge. I don’t know how that’s exactly how it happened…but what I do know is there’s a lot of great things you can do with the recipe and I have them all right here for you!
