So sorry--apparently I'm Fudge Impaired. I bought a new candy thermometer to try this recipe, and I ended up with ooze that my husband and I couldn't even stir. He broke the spoon trying. I poured it onto a piece of buttered waxed paper. It looks sort of like caramel, but it is too runny for caramel. Please give me some possibilities on what I did wrong! For starters, I probably overcooked it. I hope that an experienced, successful fudge maker will try this recipe and write a review. I don't want to give a star rating, because I'm the one that goofed. Your puppy photo is adorable!
