Very good and creamy fudge. I would suggest lining the pan with parchment or waxed paper before poring in the fudge so you can just lift it out for ease in cutting. Great recipe, thanks!

I've been testing fudge recipes lately, so I've had the opportunity to compare. Most other recipes topped this one; this one is too much trouble for what is really a marshmallow-type fudge, and it's a little icky (over-sweet, over-rich, over-soft).

This is a great recipe for fudge. Very smooth and creamy. I think the people that have reviewed this recipe by saying it was grainy, did something wrong. My guess is they used mini-marshmallows instead of the large ones. That would definately make them grainy.

I make this a lot! I get requests for this fudge every Christmas from family, friends and co-workers!

Excellent fudge. This was the first fudge recipe I tried to make and it turned out great. It's a little rich for me but my husband and our son just love it.

I was not pleased with this fudge. For me, it was grainy and did not set well (way too soft). I make fudge a lot, so I am pretty sure I did it correctly. Also, it was almost too rich tasting.

I made this fudge for Christmas, it was simple and easy to make, but best of all it was delicious

I make this recipe every Christmas and always have too much leftover and would love to freeze it. I have already cut it into squares.
