Buttery Molasses Fudge

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Chef mariajane

This is a very smooth and creamy fudge, so good. Tastes even better with a few nuts added - fold them in just before spreading in the pan.

Top Review by anothermum

This recipe was awful. My milk curdled in the pan. I stirred occasionally up until that point because the instructions didn't say either way and it seemed I probably should have stirred constantly. Then I followed the instructions exactly with my candy thermometer and mine turned to toffee. What a complete waste of all those ingredients. If you're gonna post a recipe, leave complete instructions please, especially when it comes to fudge. Otherwise it tasted very nice and would have made an awesome fudge.
