Sorry, Aunt Teen, but this turned out to be one pan of pretty expensive crumbs. I read several of the reviews and even bought a candy thermometer. I heated the mixture nice and slow until it was just at soft ball stage and followed the recipe from there. The minute I stirred in my chips, I knew something was amiss. It got too hard, too fast.
Now, I am a skilled baker, but this was my first (hopefully not my last) attempt at fudge. I really thought it was pretty foolproof, especially with the thermometer. I would rather have undercooked the fudge, but you simply can't tell until it's too late. The only thing I can think of that went wrong was that I used Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips. Oh well, time to buy some ice cream and put these crumbs on top! I will not be attempting this again. My next try at fudge will be with a traditional recipe. Good luck to everyone!
