This recipe is AWESOME! I'd never made fudge before and was glad to find a recipe without marshmallow creme. I was skeptical of the microwave but it turned out perfect. I had to microwave for 6 minutes at 50% power, removing every two minutes to stir. The first day it tasted a little funky, but after two or three days the flavor mellowed out a tad and it was DELICIOUS. I also made a butterscotch fudge using the same recipe, subsituting butterscotch chips for chocolate, and 1/2 c almonds and 1/2 c pecans for the 1 c walnuts. It's a little too nutty, so I'd go a little easier on the nuts with butterscotch. I also used white chocolate chips, added 1 tsp of mint extract and crushed 12 peppermint candies to add to the mix. The flavor is wonderful, both the white chocolate and the mint are subtle, neither overwhelms the other. It could use more of the peppermint candies, though. Next up: trying peanut butter fudge using 3 c crunchy peanut butter (not chips) instead of chocolate chips. YUM!
