unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons
Sinfully delicious! The cinnamon adds a wonderful flavor, and the chopped walnuts made it perfect. I doubled the recipe and used the 8x8 dish to make it thicker; then cut it in 1” squares. In doubling the recipe I used the whole 2# bag of confectioners’ sugar and did not measure. A note about the troubles others may have had: When it says butter don’t use margarine or spread; milk means “vitamin D” milk, not 2% or skim; and *always* sift confectioners’ sugar unless a recipe explicitly states “unsifted”, then resift with the cocoa and cinnamon. Both the confectioners’ sugar and cocoa tend to lump.
absolutely horrible, i will not make it again..
If you use real butter, good vanilla, and sift the dry ingredients (measure the sugar before sifting), there is no problem with either the flavor or consistency. This couldn't be any easier, since it isn't cooked....if you don't like the consistency *add more powdered sugar*!! It does make a very small quantity so double the recipe for an 8" pan.
This is not a boiled fudge, therefore it doesn't have the same quality, but it doesn't mean it's not yummy. I put a heaping teaspoon of cinnamon (because I love the stuff!) and no nuts as I didn't have any. I am making it again to take to work this week (it was a hit at my craft club!). I took a shortcut, I microwaved the butter and then added the milk to it, I use skim milk powder to make my milk, and used a wee bit more powder than what is required for 1/4 cup of milk. I sifted all my ingredients in a bowl, mixed them gently, and then added butter/milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stirred with a wooden spoon until all was homogenous. I then poured it in a baking paper lined bread tin, so I had a nice thick fudge (as opposed to more pieces and thinner) which I cut in about 1/2 in. squares.
This recipe's a keeper!! (wonder what it would taste like with different spices instead of cinnamon!)
Sorry this is a bit long... I had a fight with myself over the rating for this one. It didn't set for me, even after putting it in the freezer. After sitting for a few days in the fridge it got as far as not being runny but still never set -- no way I could cut it. However, without thinking, I used lower fat margarine and thought perhaps that was the problem, but I see that a few others had this same problem. Perhaps it needs real butter and some people don't use it? I also thought it a bit too sweet, even for fudge. But, the flavor was fabulous -- I'm not a big fudge fan and have never made it but was curious what cinnamon fudge would be like. Since it didn't set right, I just occasionally grab a spoonful. :-) IF I decide to try it again I will use real butter and see what happens. As for a few comments I saw about the sugar not disolving -- I had no problems with this. I *always* sift confectioners' sugar -- maybe the recipe should explicitly state to do this.
After reading all the mixed reviews I played around with the recipe just a tad. I added extra con. sugar until it thickened up nicely ( as in the recipe for the vegan fudge if anyone has used it) We like our fudge a but more on the gritty side vs. the creamy side. I did add a larger amount of cinnamon since it is titled "cinnamon fudge" =) I literally just made it and it's now in the fridge. Will have to do a follow up on it later since I made it for our party this evening. Right now the 4 stars are for ease of making the fudge.
A bit hard to get the confectioner's sugar to completely dissolve. Either sift it first or use a hand mixer. It still tasted great however - and I did use a full teaspoon of china cassia cinnamon. Very tasty - I'd make it agian.
Very easy to make. Also, tastes great. Quick, except you have to wait an hour for it to set.
