My mother has made this for as long as I can remember and its fabulous. The only thing to note is storing it in plastic containers will give it a strange taste after several days. Read More

Eh...not so much. It was okay but I think I'm spoiled on real fudge. I like my fudge to taste and feel like fudge regardless of the cooking method. I will make this again but with different expectations and different chocolate. It was really pretty though and sliced like a dream! Anyway not good not bad so I gave it a three. Read More

I have had nothing but success with this recipe! I've made it rocky road-style, with walnuts and marshmallows, and I've also made it with just marshmallows to appease my boyfriend. Both times, the fudge came out perfectly. A tip if you're using the microwave-- keep an eye on it and stir a little bit partway through to keep smooth. I've also used fat-free condensed milk, which made no difference to the recipe. I'm heading to the store now to get the ingredients to make it for tomorrow! Read More

I've used a recipe much like this for several years. I found adding salt like 1/4 teaspoon gives it a buttery flavor. And I always use the milk choc. morsals. very creamy! Read More

Never made fudge before. The first time I made this, I didn't measure the ingredients because I only wanted to use what I had in the kitchen. The fudge didn't set even when I froze it. I realize I added too much milk! So I melted everything again and added more chocolate. This time it set up just the way it should! Delicious!!! I recommend storing these in an air-tight container coz if left in the fridge just wrapped in foil, the fudge will absorb the odor of other food. Read More

Fantastic and easy. I stirred my mixture every 30 seconds and cooked it for a total of 2 minutes and it was perfect. I also used semisweet chocolate chips. My only possible critique was that I feel it used a little too much vanilla extract, so I'll probably only put in 1.5 tsp next time. But there will definitely be a next time. :) EDIT: I made this a second time with raspberry-chocolate chips and it came out just as well. I only used one tsp of vanilla and probably could've used none. Just a really good recipe. Read More

This is FABULOUS, and so EASY!! I have made quite a few batches of this fudge in the past couple of weeks. I made rocky road fudge by adding marshmallows. Then I made peanut butter (with no nuts) by adding about 3/4 cup peanut butter chips to the mix, and sprinkling the peanut butter chips on top. And finally, I made raspberry white chocolate chip fudge (with no nuts) by using raspberry flavored chocolate in place of 10 oz of the regular semi-sweet chocolate, and added white chocolate chips on top. GREAT recipe--everyone loves it! Thanks! Read More

Simply divine! My 5 and 7 year olds made batch after batch for Christmas presents. I used semi sweet chocolate chips instead of baking chocolate and it was even easier to make Read More

this is the easiest and most wonderful fudge I've ever made! You can't mess it up and believe me I'm very capable of messing things up.. but it's completely foolproof! I gave my mom this recipe and she told me I was crazy that it had to be nasty because "she's never heard of good fudge coming out of a microwave". BUT she tried it and LOVED it. Sorry mom you were wrong weren't you? 5 stars all the way:) Read More
