It tastes good but this isn't exactly fudge is it? I have a feeling it will be quite a bit messier and melty-er than traditional fudge and while it is quite tasty, I don't think I can include it in candy gift boxes which is what I was intending it for. Also, the glaze came out very thick, even with an extra teaspoon of milk and you could not "drizzle" it as the recipe says to do. I had to swirl it in while the chocolate was still warm the way you would with brownies, and the "glaze" has not set and is kinda messy. Probably won't make again.

Thanks for your comments. There are many types of fudge that include interesting ingredients such as the crumbled cookies in this recipe. We re-tested this recipe today and it is firm but not too dry in texture and did not make any changes. The glaze complements the peanut butter flavor. We have many fudge recipes on the site from plain to recipes with special flavors. I encourage you to try one of those.
