Delcious, easy, and lighting fast. I love the addition of rice cereal and marshamllows in this. I did not add any of the optional ingredients this time and thought it tasted great "plain." Great idea for hilday gift giving or a last minute sweet treat.

So easy so yum! I used semi sweet chips, and added coconut. I'd love to try this with peanut butter chips but you cant buy them in NZ.

While the result tasted good, it is NOT fudge. This is simply melted chocolate reformed into a pan with "stuff" in it. I used mini marshmallows, RK cereal, peanuts, and raisins. It tasted like the crispy/fruit and nut bunny you can buy at Easter. Yummy, but not fudge in any way, shape, or form.
