Not that impressed...
Couldn't wait to make this fudge, as I love Macadamia nuts and coconut. But, it was very sweet and not as firm as would have liked. Hubby did like it, so I might give it another chance.
This is good fudge, but quite sweet. I used over a cup of macadamias and they helped to cut the sweetness. I'd probably use a cup and a half next time. If you use evaporated milk in place of the coconut milk, you will need to add more coconut extract.
This was yummy!
This fudge was great! It was easy to make. I used part almonds and macadamia nuts since I did not have enough macadamias. Next time I would use all almonds and toast them. The taste was great and the subtle coconut flavor added alot of depth.
Very creamy, didn't have coconut flavoring so I substituted almond instead. It worked! Husband loved it and if he knew there was coconut milk in it he wouldn't eat it! Guess what they don't know won't hurt them, huh? Candy thermometer kinda scared me but it worked out ok!
GREAT WHITE FUDGE
EVERYBODY LOVED IT. I USED SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK,DID NOT HAVE COCONUT MILK, NEXT WEEK I WILL ADD SOME FLAKED SWEET COCONUT AND USE AT LEAST TWICE AS MUCH MACADAMIAS.
