Nonnie’s (My Mother) Easy Chocolate Candy

1 package of almond bark

1package of Toll House chocolate chips

Oh, Laura, I opened your blog tonight and looked at the picture and felt relief seeing that your fudge looked as "good" as mine. And then YIKES... it IS mine! lol Hopefully it tasted better than it looked.
Your recipe sounds fabulous and I hope to give it a try this Christmas season.
Thanks for the shoutout, Laura.

Girl...you had me at easy. That is my middle name (at least that's what's written on bathroom walls).
I just have to add that your previous post was wonderful. It reminded me of one of my all time favorite posts of yours...glitter and God.
