Chocolate Marie Biscuit Fudge

Marie, the name of the popular tea-time biscuit, was inspired by Russia’s Grand Duchess Maria. She was also the daughter of Czar Alexander II of Russia and wife of Alfred, the second  son of Queen Victoria and  the Duke of Edinburgh.  The original biscuit was created for their wedding  at an English bakery that made a small round cookie stamped with the duchess’ name in 1874.
