“We take pride in creating fudge true to the recipe of my grandfather in Scotland and we do it right here in New England,” said Mill Fudge Factory Co-Owner and General Manager Noah Munro. “People tell us they can taste the care we put into our fudge. We’re so happy that we can now share it with folks across the U.S. Our fudge makes for a unique Halloween treat, a great addition to the Thanksgiving table and a fabulous Christmas or Hanukkah gift.”

Advocates of the slow food movement, the Munro family make their fudge with all natural ingredients including Callebaut Belgian dark chocolate, Cabot butter, pure honey and cane sugar and staunchly avoid corn syrup, preservatives, artificial flavors and colors.

My girls really enjoyed crushing up the butterfingers together!

I would say that these brownies are absolutely amazing and my two little helpers would most definitely agree. I love a cool dessert, especially in the summer. I have made these for a few barbecues and summer outings that we have had and I will tell you that I always have to leave the recipe with them when I leave because they are just truly that good.

If you wanted to use a different candy topping heath or even Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups would be a great topping for this amazing dessert.

Please let me know what your thoughts are on this amazing dessert and what topping you choose for your family.
