Homemade Snickers fudge has become one of our family’s favorite recipes to make of the holidays.  It always gets rave reviews and requests for the recipe.  It has a lot of ingredients in it, but it is not difficult to make.  It is poured into a 9×13 pan and you can cut it into squares, or use a cookie cutter to make fun shapes and then dip them in addtional chocolate.  After all, you can never have too much chocolate!
