My suggestion is for you to contact the Extension service in your area to learn information about cooking and baking at the high altitude. They will be able to help you with how to vary ingredients and timing in a recipe.

I have the worst time with fudge. It always seems to be gritty or too hard. I live at an altitude of 6200 feet. Is there something I should do differently?

This is a fool proof recipe. So easy to prepare and it comes out perfectly! I love the versatility of being able to use the candy and nuts you prefer for the topping. I am thinking you could even use different flavors of chips such as butterscotch or peanut butter to make the possibilities endless!
