The easiest and most fun recipe for fudge! Use yellow cake mix for a very batter-y taste or experiment with any other flavor! My favorite is strawberry.

Don't feel the quantity was sufficient for a 9X13 pan. Mine didn't even cover the bottom. I think it is better suited for a 8X8 pan. I doubled the recipe so that the fudge when cut would be a little deeper. Very simple to make. Read More

I doubled the recipe because I didn't think it would cover the bottom of the pan. Mine never set up and ended up being a gloppy mess Read More

I had no problem getting this recipe to set. I doubled the recipe and instead of microwaving, I melted the butter over the stove in a medium pot, poured in cream (instead of milk) and then added the dry ingredients. Mixed it all until smooth and then let set up in a greased and foiled 8x8 dish. Took about 30 minutes to set up in the freezer. I added a picture too! Turned out great! Read More

It's tastes really good. I added walnuts and some chocolate chips. Although they melted they created a really nice swirl to the fudge. I would definitely recommend this recipe. Easy and tasty!! Read More

While pretty dang tasty this never set. It was more of a sticky caramel consistency. I ended up rolling it into balls and serving them in little mini-cupcake papers. I sprinkled them with sugar and told everyone they were "cake batter caramels". sigh Read More

No stars. This was disgusting. Tastes nasty. 1/4 inch thickness even when put in a 9x9 pan. Wasted ingredients and time Read More
