The recipe is one of the best I've come across. Fudge is not an easy candy to pull off. I've heard many, many horror stories of fudge gone absolutely wrong. Try this recipe. TIPS FOR SUCCESS: 1. Start your stove heat on low to melt your ingredients together before the big boil. 2. Once your ingredients are mixed well on low heat, turn your heat to medium low. Remember, you must achieve a boil for 5 minutes--not a rolling boil as the recipe states. Be patient--it will take several minutes for the mixture to start bubbling. Do not stop stirring. 3. Do not stop stirring, especially when your mixture starts to boil. Expect to manually stir for 15+ minutes if you want this fudge to turn out perfectly. 4. If you like nuts, add more nuts than what the recipe calls for. I suggest 1/4-1/2 a cup more. I prefer walnuts-choose what you like. -Ashley item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe!!! Served it at my Christmas Party. Everybody asked for the recipe. With that being said I made one minor adjustments. 1. By accident I put 1 teaspoon of salt instead of the ΒΌ teaspoon the recipe called for. To fix this I added 2 tablespoons of extra sugar. I brought the mixture to a boil on high then lowered the temp to medium. I started my 5 minute timer after the boil started. 5 minutes is all it takes. Also instead of using aluminum foil, just greased the pan with baking spray. Leave out for 30 minutes then place in refrigerator for 45 minutes. It comes out easily. I would also recommend that you wipe your knife off after each cut for clean edges. 5 Stars for me item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't have any trouble with this recipe, and it turned out great! I used 60% cacao Ghiradelli chocolate chips (1 1/2 12-ounce bags) because that's what I had, and it was still delicious. I will definitely use this recipe again! This is going to be a Valentine gift for my adult kids! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm using this recipe to give my post-Christmas presents to all our neighbors and vendors. Fudge doesn't get much better than this! Hubby's and my only changes to this are 1: use semi-sweet chips instead of milk chocolate 2: use 3/4 c. walnuts instead of 1/2 c. unspecified nuts. A real winner! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Christmas is here!! EXCELLENT! Took a little time and lots of stirring to bring it to a boil ( I followed "evenstarwen" suggestions) Turned out GREAT! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very easy with few ingredients. My son was able to help the first part of the recipe and loved the names for each ingredient. Very good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty! I recommend cutting the squares immediately after removing from the fridge. This fudge is very soft and can get pretty messy. I used 1/2 semi sweet and 1/2 milk chocolate because that's all I had and it turned out just fine. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This fudge had a great taste to it. However, it didn't set completely - I was so afraid I was going to overcook it, I think I accidentally undercooked :( I skipped the chopped nuts. Instead, I added a half teaspoon of orange extract to the batter and grated some orange zest on top. My coworkers went crazy over it, even though it was pretty soft and was VERY messy once it got to room temperature. Luckily, there was literally only one piece left by the time that happened, so it was I who ate the messy piece. : I think I'll try some peppermint extract with this recipe in a few months for a holiday kick! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was wonderful fudge. It turned out creamy and so flavorful. I cooked it at a medium heat and made sure it was at a nice rolling boil and it worked perfectly. I will use this recipe again... item not reviewed by moderator and published
