Don't give up on this candy until after its been chilled for the minimum time specified in the recipe. Mine sat in an unheated kitchen in a plastic bag on the counter, overnight, and was just perfect the next morning...even though I’d come within a hairs breadth of throwing it away the night before. I’d overlooked that last line in the recipe that says “chill for two hours in the refrigerator”. Heating the condensed milk to boiling temp and allowing it to boil briefly before adding the chocolate seems to help the candy to set-up well later.
My copy of the recipe specifies it should be stored in the fridge. I’m including a note with my gift packages, directing that the candy should be kept cool until just before serving time.
This candy is quick and easy to make, can be done in the microwave, sets-up well (if you just remember that white chocolate defies the usual rules of fudge, and actually will set-up properly once its been chilled.) and looks very nice poured thickly and cut small. Fudge lovers like the intense sweetness. I prefer to allow candies to reach room temp before serving.
