This gets 5 starts because it turned out great, even after I messed up. I started out with a 3 qt pot, which turned out to be way too small once the boiling started. After pulling the pot off the fire several times to avoid boil-over, I ended up pouring it all into a 6 qt (the only other size I had) and reheating it to the boiling stage. My thermometer never went past 215F but I stopped cooking at the soft ball stage and it turned out fine.
I had no idea what the fudge's "gloss" was supposed to look like, but I just beat for a couple of minutes once it seemed lukewarm (I'd ditched the thermometer by then) and poured it out. It looked awfully runny, but it set up beautifully and tastes fantastic - it's got a slightly sandy texture that just melts on the tongue. I'm definitely a fudge convert!
