I normally try hard to adhere to a recipe as it's written when trying it the first time. In this case however I kept some of the reviews and my prior experience making this type of simple fudge in mind before proceeding as I was concerned about wasting ingredients. The typical ratio of chips to milk with this type of fudge is 2.5 cups chips to 14 ounces of milk. That's what I have always used and it's always worked out for me. I just could not see this setting up as written and many of the reviews confirmed that therefore I used 2.5 cups chips. The end result was a firm but creamy textured fudge. I also chose dried tart cherries instead of candied for more of a sweet/tart contrast and next time I would add a touch more almond extract.
I listened to the other reviews and added an extra half a bag of chocolate chips so it wouldn't be too soft. Still turned out slightly softer than I like will add whole bag next time. Tasted great everyone loved it. Thanks!!!
Although this tastes really good the texture of it is much too soft to be considered fudge. I followed the recipes word for word and even after staying in the fridge all night it stayed soft enough to be considered ice-cream topping which is how I'm going to eat it.
Delicious and so easy! Following the comments of prior reviews I used 2 1/2 C of chips along with dried tart cherries. I made several different fudges for my family and this one was the hands down favorite for everyone.
