OK, re-did the recipe but altered it and it tastes like See's candy fundge (that's why I've changed my rating from 3 stars to 5 stars)!! Smooth, but with my changes. My changes: 3 c sugar, use semisweet choc chips (not milk chocolate), 4 c marshmallows, and leave out the 2 oz unsweetened chocolate; save the money and leave out the 4oz of white choc (it's only a decoration and doesn't enhance the taste). Once the pot is transferred off the heat, add all ingredients per the recipe but use a mixer to blend it smooth. Mix it on high for at least 5 minutes (or more). Do everything else per the recipe - and its perfect!
Great recipe! Easy to make and turns out smooth and creamy.
This fudge recipe is a keeper. I have been trying to find one that my family loves for years and this is it. It turns out great and doesn't have to be refrigerated. Nice firm creamy texture.
YUM... used mint extract instead of vanilla and semi-sweet chips. So good.
Although I had no issues making the recipe as some did, I simply did not care much for the flavor of this fudge. It was simple to make and set up perfectly. Perhaps a darker chocolate to give it more flavor?
Follow the directions and you will be pleased. This is my first time making fudge and it was delicious. Be sure to get all the sugar granules off the side of the pan as you stir. I like semi sweet chocolate chips so you can substitute them, or dark chocolate whichever you prefer.
DO NOT STIR AFTER SUGAR IS BOILING!!! This is the biggest flaw in how the recipe is written out. If you stir it WILL seize on you and be gritty. Otherwise this recipe is SOOOO good. Best fudge I've ever had and my grandma did the old school fudge method that is outrageously good...this is better than that by a good bit I'm sad and delighted to say. It's so easy once you get it down and DON'T STIR THE SUGAR AND MILK MIXTURE AFTER IT BOILS!!!
I followed this recipe as written and the result was a slightly grainy texture and too soft. I prefer a darker chocolate flavor. To me I could have just eaten the chocolate chips as that is what it tasted like.
Great fudge! I made it today and it was so super easy to make! I made mine without nuts as my family doesn't care for them! Still a great yummy fudge! No thermometer needed.
I wish I had the success everyone else had which is why I gave 2 stars for possible user error? But this recipe is not fool proof! And I love baking! Use to stay up from 10 to 4am just baking before I had my daughter. The sugar would not melt I boiled past the 5 minutes because I could tell it was still gritty and it stayed that way.... Maybe add water? but I was scared it would burn if I waited much longer so I started mixing in the ingredients after 10 minutes of slow bubbling. The whole thing is super gritty! It's because of the sugar I've never made fudge with sugar in it but thought this recipe would be good. I'm throwing it out :(. Wasted money! Wish it were salvageable not happy.
