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.
This is the recipe I've been searching for!! It's perfect!
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.
All I can say is....delicious. It is so creamy and the flavor is out of this world. Maybe it is the unsweetened chocolate that balances out the chocolate chips, I don't know. But I know it is yummy. I am using this recipe for a Goodie Class that I teach before Christmas every year at a local stamping shop. They make hand-done tags and with this one they will have a piece of wrapped fudge to which they will attach the tag. They will also put the recipe on the tag so when they give it away at Christmas-time, the recipient of the tag can make it again. They make five different tags and then get to sample all of the food. The tags make a great little gift to bring someone. They have never done fudge before and I know they will love this. If I didn't think it was G-R-E-A-T, I wouldn't choose it to do. Thanks Impera_Magna for this wonderful, flavorful fudge. EDIT: This is a note after the class that I taught. Everyone loved the fudge. I did put nuts in it and it was great. And it stayed soft for so long and got better each day. The gals were thrilled. Thanks again.
I made this fudge for the cookie exchange at work. I packaged it in foil containers with a big red bow. The presentation was perfect but the fudge is what got all the compliments! This fudge is so easy to make and turns out great everytime! I made one batch and swirled a green chocolate mint mixture over the top and made another where I mixed peanut butter in the fudge after the final step and before pouring into the pans. I then swirled peanut butter on top... It doesn't seem to matter what you do to this recipe as the fudge is just perfect!
This is a great fudge recipe, just the consistency I was looking for. I like that it could be poured to set rather than beaten and also that it is creamy in texture rather than sugary. Thanks for sharing.
