    Andi of Longmeadow Farm's Note:

    Chocolate fudge that comes from the dog-eared pages of this cookbook. To this day, my family can down a whole pan of these before they have completely set. Yummy, especially licking the bowl. *Please Note*, add extra milk (a teaspoon at a time) if mixture is to thick. Time includes setting time, that is; if this fudge makes it that long. Exceptional tasting for a simple recipe, and easy for your children to make too.

      Responding to Bonnie G from last December. Tips that might help alleviate graininess (I've had that problem). Cut boiling to 1 minute(later versions do that). Use less confectioners sugar. Sifted 3 cups is less than unsifted. Less sugar also cuts down on the sweetness factor. I have made this fudge more times than I want to admit since I got this cookbook when it first came out in 1957. Each time it is a little different in final texture but still very good.

      I'm not rating this with stars because I'm sure I did something wrong. I've never been able to make fudge with that creamy texture that I love (think I cook it to long) and I'm afraid that I did the same thing here so it's my error not the recipe. The I made this recipe as part of my holiday tray and it came out hard and grainy - but I did want to review as the taste is wonderful and chocolaty so I know if I can get the timing right we are going to love it. I will sure be trying it again just must figure out how to make fudge as it's my grandkids very favorite at this time of year.
