Best Ever Fudge

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by Kris41

I got this from school when the teachers had their Christmas Potluck Party. This is a favorite of anyone who makes it. I put that it serve 24 but this fudge is very rich and should be cut in small piece, I cut mine about the size of a caramel, you will have more than 24 depending on how you cut them.

I was intrigued with the idea of not cooking the butter with the milk and sugar as I've never made fudge that way before so I tried a half-recipe... yuck. Not only did the butter try to separate out of the fudge when I poured it into the pan to cool, but the milk/sugar mixture curdled a bit. Yuck. Then I made another half-recipe that put the butter in the pan with the milk and sugar like I grew up doing and did everything the same otherwise. Perfect! No curdling, no separation, just good yummy fudge! I rated 5 stars for a tasty recipe less 2 stars for needing to make critical changes to get a good result.
