    In order for me to eat the Cherry Opera Fudge l would have to use milk/dark chocolate frosting because l don’t like white chocolate.

    I used to make this fudge EVERY year for years. It was a tradition, but now I can’t get the frosting mix anywhere. My kids are all grown with children of their own but they still crave my “opera fudge”every year. Do you still make it $ where can I get it. It would be the best surprise if I could surprise them with my fudge again. PLEASE help thank you.
