Mention "fudge" and I think of scalded pans, grainy shards, and fretting over a cauldron, stirring stirring stirring. Follow the directions and you will have a creamy, delicious batch, suitable for gift-giving. This recipe goes into my "Tried & True" files.

It was easy to make, and took little time. But when came the time to cut the squares the fudge was not set. It spent more than 2 hours in the fridge, so I don't know what went wrong. They stll taste amazing, but they are too gooey and practicaly melt in my fingers. I would not give this batch as a gift or bring it to a pot luck, but I will make this again in a few weeks and let the mixture boil down a bit longer & do it a day ahead so they can sit in the fridge for a longer time. I hope I can get them to look presentable. =)

I absolutely love making this fudge, and my family and friends absolutely love it when I make it too! With this recipe you can use any kind of chips (chocolate, peanut butter, butter scotch) and it always turns out awesome! But, mind you, I always omit the nuts and it still turns out fabulous.

This just may be the best chocolate fudge ever! WOW. I could eat the entire pan (and probably will). It's also incredibly easy and no candy-thermometer needed! I would suggest following the directions and lining the pan; I keep mutilating the fudge when I try to get it out of the pan.

Everyone raved about this fudge. I used Andes Mints chopped up and it was just wonderful and easy.

I make this every Christmas. I like to make dark peppermint fudge with this recipe using dark chocolate chips, peppermint extract and chopped candy canes. Chopped marashino cherries and cherry extract make a great Cherry Cordial Fudge and you can even throw in peanuts instead of pecans and make a Rocky Road Fudge! It's a great recipe that you can play with and really make your own.

I am not a baker at all and i can barely make the easiest brownies. I followed this recipe and i made the best fudge ever. It was so good and so easy. Instead of the pecans i used almonds. If i can make this fudge anyone can.

I also make creamy butterscotch fudge following this recipe and using butterscotch morsels instead of the chocolate makes a delicious fudge
