This is such a simple fudge recipe. My mom has made this creamy and yummy fudge since I can remember! Everyone that tries it can't stop eating it! The best thing about it is you can personalize it by mixing in any of your favorite candies.

I have returned to edit my review. I have left the original review here but after waking up from my nap the one I had melted at low heat had firmed up far better than the higher heat one. It had some congealed fat visible on it but not as much as I would have expected and when it was cut up it was not a problem. Still far from my favorite fudge but the ease of making it makes it worthwhile I think. previous review I made this with Ghirardelli 60% cocoa chocolate chips. I made two batches. The first seized up s the fat separated from the rest and I ended up with very greasy fudge. I thought maybe medium (I used setting 5 out of 12 settings on my cooktop so it was a low-medium) was too hot so I made it on setting 1. It did the exact same thing. I'm not sure what I could do differently so I think I will use a more traditional recipe next time. Read More

Same as my mom's fudge recipe only hers called for 1 teaspoon of vanilla and a little butter if your wanting soft fudge. Love it. Super easy. Sometimes I add nuts. Read More

Very tasty! Simple and quick! My daughter said a 5 but hubby and I didn't think it firmed up as nice as we would have liked. I will do this again but let it cook a little longer. I hope that may help with firming it up. Read More

i use my microwave oven to make this recipe. It was the fudge recipe my mom used for years but we do add a tsp or so of vanilla at the end of cooking. I cook for 30 seconds at a time and then mix put back in microwave and re do until all is melted and well incorporated. It is much easier than cooking on stove top which i have been know to scorch from time to time. I then put it in the fridge to get it to set up faster as my family can not wait 2 to 3 hours for it to harden i hope this helps those that have had some trouble Read More

I made this fudge about 4 hours ago adding a cup of walnuts and it STILL isn't set up. It tastes great! I would be okay eating it with a spoon but the wax paper is securely stuck: ( Read More

I absolutely love the flavor of this fudge! The only problem I had was it didn't not set to my liking. It is very gooey and stuck to the foil for dear life. I will use this recipe again but will be making sure to cook longer like other reviewers say. Mmm delicious!! Read More
