    I have been making this fudge for the last few years for Christmas, everyone seems to love it and ask for it. One year I didn't have enough German chocolate so I added white chocolate to make up the difference! Now that is how I make it all the time!

    Did I read the recipe wrong or something? After it came to the soft boil stage I put all that chocolate in and it immediately turned grainy and I couldn't get it out of the pot let alone put the fluff in it. What's the secret?

    I made this fudge last Christmas for our daughter-in-law who has a catering business. She thought it was the best fudge she ever tasted and wanted the recipe for the business

    I made this yummy fudge last year at Christmas when I received my magazine!!! It is amazing--it's a very nice to have if you do any family baking like I do w/my friends and family. We only need to make one batch of this and we have PLENTY of fudge left over! I am making it again tomorrow (12.04.10) w/my girl friends!!!!

    I had never made fudge before and this was my first try. It turned out AWESOME. I took some to a friend at work who loved it. He took some home to his family and they all raved it was the best, creamiest fudge they had ever eaten.
