Recipe Comments & Reviews

When making this fudge, I'm having difficulty getting the temperature to 234 degrees. I've made this twice, both times with my candy thermometer (which I checked with my instant read thermometer),cooked it for the stated amount of time and it still didn't reach 234. I'm stumped!

The candy mixture should come to 234 degrees. The length of time needed will depend on the temp. you are cooking it at.

This recipe is excellent!! I'm Teaching my 11 year old daughter to make so she can enter it in the fair. It's sure to be a blue ribbon winner!
I made this fudge last Thanksgiving and Christmas and it was amazing! My husband is not a fudge person, but he loved this fudge. He has already made sure that I was making it again this year :)
All I needed to hear was that it had "Land O Lakes" butter in it! That is all it takes to get 5 stars from me! I don't use anything but "Land O Lakes" in anything that I bake etc. Love IT! :D
Has anyone made this fudge using butterscotch morsels instead of the white? How did it taste?
Very good! Everyone that tried it loved it. My grandson said it was the best fudge he ever tasted.
This turned out perfect, even though my candy thermometer didn't work. Taste like the pumpkin fudge that a local farm use to make (they never would share the recipe)
it's FUDGE. Of course it's sweet. Why are you reviewing this, giving it one star, when you haven't even tried it?
Sounds too sweet with the white baking chips...Hope someone tries this and rates it soon.
