Recipe Comments & Reviews

Never made fudge before and gave this recipe a try. Big hit in my house, and the way it is disappearing I can tell I will be making it again before the Holidays. Great Fudge!
This is the first time I made fudge and it was so easy to make. I don't have a candy thermometer, just went by the time. It came out creamy and delicious. Will definitely make this again for my holiday cookie tray and for gifts.
yum yum
This is easy and delicious. I used half semi-sweet chocolate and half 70% dark chocolate. Yum.
Excellent, this has become a family holiday tradition
I have always made my moms homemade fudge recipe for years but this looked so easy and delicious so I tried it. It was the most creamy delicious rich fudge that you would ever want. This is a rich fudge so if you are wanting it to be not so rich I would suggest using 1 bag of milk chocolate chips with the 1 bag of bittersweet regular instead of the 2 bags of bittersweet it calls for. All in all...great fudge. I took some to my parents house and I think my dad ate all I brought the first night!
Very Good Mummmmmmmmmmmmmm
