    Impera_Magna's Note:

    I clipped this recipe from a December 1983 issue of The Charlotte (NC) Observer, which was running a contest to see who made the best fudge. This recipe won in the "Plain Chocolate Fudge" category (no additives such as nuts). I made this for presents at the holidays and now my grown kids are making it for gifts themselves. I buy disposable aluminum pans approx 5x8-inch so I can just wrap them up and give them as gifts. This recipe makes three pans-full.... or two 8x8-inch pans of fudge.

      Then let boil for 2 minutes, not stirring.

      If you are like me and don't have good luck with fudge, try this. I have been trying for years to come up with just the right taste and texture and this is the one. It's easy, fairly fast, and makes a big batch (plenty for gift giving!). As for you Impera Magna, this isn't the first of your recipes that I've tried and liked, so thank you once again. UPDATE: Here we are almost Christmas 08 and I still LOVE this recipe. It always comes out creamy, soft (not crumbly) and last year after all the fanfare was over I realized I made 5 batches! Needless to say everyone LOVED it.

      Most definately 5 stars! This fudge truely lives up to its name. And the best part it was so easy. I followed the recipe exactly. It came out so nice, it set up nice, was creamy, great texture. And a super rich chocolate taste. Check it out chocolate lovers. I love that it doesn't have any nuts in it, though I am sure you could just as easily add them if you like. I have already given a batch as a gift. It was very well received! I am giving another batch tomorrow as a gift. It does get better as it sits, but I don't think it will last too long in our house. LOL I am not a great fudge maker, but this recipe worked so well for me. It is a keeper. I am so glad you clipped this recipe so many years ago. And so glad you posted it here. Thank so much.
