This was my Grandmother's recipe for fudge that she sold in her candy shop. It is the best fudge I have had and it is very easy to make. If pecans aren't your forte, substitute walnuts or almonds!

  • In a medium saucepan combine sugar, condensed milk, butter and chocolate chips. Heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface.

  • Remove chocolate mixture from heat and add marshmallow and nuts. Pour the fudge into the prepared pan, and let set.

This fudge was great. I guess I guessed correctly that you should use POWDERED sugar not granulated. This explains the large quantity. Read More

This is a terrible recipe for fudge! It is not descriptive enough about the cooking techniques - very bad for beginners like me! It says to heat the mixture but it doesn't say what heat setting on your stove and whether or not to stir it. After you remove it from heat it doesn't say if it should cool down to room temperature before adding the marshmallow and it doesn't say if you should let it set in the refrigerator or not. As a result my first try at fudge came out terrible - the chocolate burned in the pan either because I had the heat too high (I had it set on the "medium" setting of my dial) or because I didn't stir and maybe I should have.

This recipe has been far from rewarding for the effort and time involved. Despite my stirring constantly for 45 minutes the sugar never really melted to give the fudge the smoothness it should have. Moreover it got burned at the bottom although I used the low setting on the range. After pouring the fudge in the pan it hardened like a rock making cutting difficult. A total waste of time and ingredients. Read More

12 15 00 I tried this recipe today and it turned out terrible sugary. I think the sugar amount must be wrong compared to others on the web. I will probably throw it away. Totally disappointed. Mrs. Sheets Read More

I tried the recipe twice and just couldn't get it to work. I think the amount of sugar listed must be incorrect. It was very difficult to get the mixture to a boiling point it scorched easily and the finished product was very "gritty". Read More

Not bad... IF you use powdered sugar. SIFTED powdered sugar. Otherwise you'll get little pellets. Good flavor. Not sure if I'll use again. Read More
