    My 5 and 2 year old girls and I made this today and it was foolproof. I was looking for a easy chocolate recipe with items on hand in my pantry. This was incredibly easy and delicious. I excluded the nuts though.

    Ruby Rosales from San Antonio, TX

    I was in a rush and needed some quick fudge and found this recipe on line. I was short 2 squares of semi-sweet chocolate so I added 2 of unsweetened and everyone loved it saying it tasted just delicious. I was lucky to get a couple of little pieces, but I can assure you it's my recipe for fudge from now on. Thanks!

    Foolproof Chocolate Fudge

    Pamela Strawn from Social Circle, GA

    Last evening I made the foolproof chocolate fudge using a glass bowl, the microwave, and Nestle Bakers Chocolate. It only took a few minutes and was one of the easiest recipes I have ever made. My husband said it was the best chocolate fudge he had ever eaten, and my daughter who usually doesnt eat sweets loved it also. I will definitely make this again!

    Smooth & Tasty

    Teresa Tribbett from CRESTHILL, IL

    Not only is this recipe quick and easy, it tastes great. I love that the final product is smooth without a grainy texture from sugar which so many fudge recipes call for.

    Just Right

    Ellen Jones from MARIETTA, SC

    This was an easy recipe and it's not overly sweet. Try it with your kids or grandkids to create a wonderful memory and satisfy that chocolate craving.

    Good Fudge

    Cyndi Bryce from Vashon, WA

    I liked this fudge all right, but it was not my fave. The flavor was not as rich as some fudge I have made in the past. Maybe I did something wrong while preparing it. I will try once more just in case. If you like a lighter chocolate flavor (like milk chocolate) you will like this, but I will probably make it with a darker chocolate next time.

  •  Star(s)

    Excellent!

    Pattie Murphy from Robinson, IL

    My son and I had a craving for fudge. I searched for an easy recipe and found this one. We were eating fudge before bed. He told me I had to make a trip to the store again tomorrow for supplies. I will be fixing this a lot! This is so Easy!

    Very easy to make

    Jennifer Fierro from Tonopah, AZ

    I can't believe that something this simple tastes so good. The brownies were gone in a couple of hours. I know that has got to be deadly! :^)

  •  Star(s)

    Oops! Good but soft

    Lisa Cleath from PASADENA, CA

    I substituted chocolate chips for the bars and fat-free sweetened condensed milk, and it turned out too soft...still tastes great, so I think I'll use it in a chocolate layer cake.

  •  Star(s)

    Sherry Skaggs from McAlester, OK

    I love this recipe. I use it a lot. It always turns out and it's so simple a child could make this. With all the baking you normally do at Christmas, it is so nice to have a recipe that isn't expensive and doesn't take a lot of time.

    So, so easy

    Stephanie Moore from MELBOURNE, FL

    I've made this several times and each time I can't believe how easy it is; plus everyone thinks I've spent half the day making it. You can also leave out the nuts and it still comes out great.

  •  Star(s)

    It really is foolproof!

    L T from ANCHORAGE, AK

    This is the easiest fudge I've ever made that actually tastes like you put some effort into making it. As another baker said, it's great to send overseas. I sent some to my deployed friends & family.

    Sonja McCown from WICHITA, KS

    I made this with chocolate chips instead of the baking bars and it turned out awesome. It was a little richer or something than when I did it with the bars. Either way this is excellent fudge and easy to make!

    Mmmmm!! The Best Chocolate Fudge Ever!!

    Jennifer Smith from GASTON, IN

    Oh, my gosh!! This is one of the best chocolate fudge recipes I have ever had!! It was so simple and easy to make and even better to eat. I didn't add the nuts to mine in this batch, but I think the next time I do make it, that I will try it with nuts, but it is really good without the nuts too. This will definitely be a keeper in my recipe box!! :)
