    Better than professional made!

    Jennifer Lowe from Oak Park, IL

    I made this at Christmas and received many compliments on the fudge. People even liked it better than fudge from a candy shop! and it was so easy. I have made fudge the old-fashioned way and this took much less time. It was nice to have something easy to cross off my list at the holidays.

    The BEST!

    Arlene Bright from ARLINGTON, VA

    This is so easy to make and comes out absolutely delicious! The texture is creamy and a little goes a long way. I made this with my Christmas baking and I'm still having requests for the recipe. We're a milk chocolate family so we did milk chocolate chips and walnuts. If you're a fudge lover this one's for you.

    I found the texture satisfactory, but the flavor was lacking. Maybe it needs a pinch more salt or darker chocolate.

    Experienced Cook

    Leah Brown from Elkins Park, PA

    This fudge recipe was easy to follow and delicious! This is my new holiday favorite. I found that it was easier to remove the fudge from the pan if the pan was sprayed with a non stick spray first. I mixed the semi sweet and the milk chocolate morsels together and doubled the recipe and it came out perfect.

  •  Star(s)
