sweetened condensed milk
semi-sweet chocolate chips
This recipe is perfect every time! I start the time when the syrup starts to boil, another recipe on this site says to do that, too! I have not had it burn, I stir it quite a bit while it cooks. Watch the heat. Thanks for the great recipe, I now can make chocolate and the peanut butter fudge (from this site) without fail! My mother used to say some people are candy makers and some not, I am so glad I can do it!
In the directions I think it should say to boil all of the ingredients till the sugar melts. There was so much sugar in the recipe that even when I let it boil for 7 minutes, the sugar wouldn't melt. You also have to stir it constantly or else it burns. I ended up with really granular burnt fudge. The directions need to be clearer.
Yikes! Not EXACTLY "fool-proof." What went wrong? The sugar never melted and started to scorch. (I remember a recipe like this from years ago, but never had trouble with it before) Seemed liked there was too much sugar in proportion to the other ingredients?
This recipe was PERFECT! I just assumed with the amount of sugar in this recipe, and the milk, this is a recipe that had to be stirred. Mine did not burn, it turned out perfect! I have made it each year since it was added to the site. No problems with it here, but then, I am a seasoned cook and candy maker. I also don't need to have all directions spelled out, I figure it out on my own!
OK In this persons defense, I love making fudge and this recipe may nat say to stir constantly. You are right there, however people who do make these kinds of treats know that when cooking with sugar in this amount you do hac=ve to stir it constantly. I loved this recipe and wil for sure use it again! Thank you!!
Very delicious. Made this for a bake sale. Some lady came and purchased all that I had left after purchasing a bag thirty minutes earlier. Thanks for sharing.
I made this recipe and started to wounder when the sugar was going to evaporate. It never did. Too much sugar and it produced a grainy fudge. It wasn't a hit with me.
This is foolproof if you have a clue as to what you are doing. This might not be a good recipe for the inexperienced cook. I thought it was fantastic and very SIMPLE to make.
