This is a great fudge. Similiar to the one sold at Disney World. I did make some changes. I added 12 oz of pineapple with the juice squeezed out and I used heavy whipping cream for rich flavor. The directions aren't specific enough for the inexperienced candy maker though. This fudge should be cooled til lukewarm without stirring. The trick it to not being crumbly is to beat it until it thickens somewhat and the color becomes duller and lighter than it was before you started beating it.
Perhaps one CUP as the recipe calls for instead of the can used wouldn't yield a pan of sludge. You can't specify how long something cools for- ti's different depending on the temperature humidity etc. Cool is just... cool. LOL Please try the recipe again!
OHHHH they are sooo good if they didnt turn out people did it wrong (there is some texture to them but nothing bad)I will so make these again and I am not experienced with candy (thanks to the helpful reviews appriciate it) these turned out awesome definatly will make again!
I have made this one many times now and do not understand the problems others seem to have had. Perhaps people are adding a can instead of a cup of pineapple?? Sweet-just like fudge is supposed to be! I will continue to make this as our Thanksgiving/Christmas fudge. Love it.
I made this recipe using the tips from the review where the one person used heavy cream. It still came out very crumbly before I added the lemon juice. Here's how I fixed it: I added an extra teaspoon of lemon juice and I drizzled in some extra heavy cream. Just enough to make it smooth when mixed. Mine turned out very well...very smooth. Of course there is that bit of texture but you expect that because there is pineapple in it and no matter how much you cook it pineapple will be grainy. It is very sweet though so I'd suggest cutting it in smaller peices than you normally would for fudge. I hope this helps someone. Have fun!
I decided to make this even though the ratings were not that good. Like others I followed the recipe to the letter. It did set up and had a good taste but was very grainy. Like crystalized sugar. I will not make again.
