This stuff is fantastic! So easy if you're craving fudge and need a quick fix. And it's great to bring for a potluck or give as a gift too. I've made it several times but had mixed results a couple times. For those who had trouble with the recipe, I think the secret is to remove and thoroughly stir the mixture several times throughout the 2-3 minute melting time. This ensures the butter is blended in so it doesn't end up sitting on the top after the chips are melted. Enjoy!

The recipe is perhaps a little too sweet. I may try reducing the amount of sugar slightly (say a 1/2 cup less) and see how it tastes.

I followed the directions as written and it turned out horribly. There was too much butter; it was on top and bottom of fudge when removed from refrigerator. And, the taste....
