"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!" — O0SHAUNA0O

This fudge was great. I guess I guessed correctly that you should use POWDERED sugar, not granulated. This explains the large quantity.
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.
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
I don't understand why it was not specified that it required powdered sugar.
I did not use powder sugar, my dad loved it. It reminded him of his Mom's. Thanks
I wasted prescious time in my holiday baking, I tried cane fudge and peanut butter fudge from this website that turned out much better.
I wish I had read the reviews first.
