This fudge has very rich taste and it is not grainy. Be sure you keep a close eye on the temperature or it will get too firm,(mine did,new thermometer). Well worth the effort. Thanks!

Absolutely wonderful and easy. Best fudge ever. I made the following slight alterations I substituted Coconut oil for butter at all steps and added 1c of pecans. I also did not go by temperature but softball stage, it works better here on the humity coast.
