I was on the hunt for the old Fantasy Fudge recipe when I stumbled upon Karen's recipe. I will admit I struggled a bit trying to get the mixture up to 230 degrees (wasn't sure how long this was supposed to take) due to my lack of candy making experience. End result, my fudge turned out a bit firmer than I would have liked (need more practice with my candy making skills) but my family has enjoyed the buttery chocolate fudge (my 6 yr old absolutely loves this fudge). I can't wait to try this recipe with different flavored chips, and I hope to be a bit more successful with my final results next time.

Thank you for posting this. My mother and I made this when I was little every christmas for my great-grandfather who was in a nursing home at the time (91 years old) Mom had lost the recipe and it had changed. This fudge is wonderful and the memories are just as wonderful too. Thank you.

I've used this recipe for years...and had lost it. Thank you for posting this super-easy, creamy chocolate fudge. It is easy enough for beginners to achieve success, and us experienced cooks do too.

Was easy to make, but came out way too soft/squishy and was way too sweet.

I was looking for a fudge recipe so I could add it to my Christmas cookie tins this year, and thought I had found a home run with this recipe. But then I made it, and was extremely disappointed.<br/><br/>I made four kinds- chocolate walnut, chocolate toffee, peanut butter and mint chocolate.<br/><br/>Only the peanut butter was edible, and it definitely needs some raw peanut butter in there to tone down the sweetness. The rest were just sickly sweet. I love sweet things, and I love fudge, but this was just... painful.<br/><br/>Maybe it's just me- it seems like plenty of people have deemed this recipe tried-and-true. But if you're looking for a rich, decadent fudge... look elsewhere. :(

This is the first fudge recipe I've made that has worked! I made a white chocolate version and everyone loved it! It didn't set as hard as I would have liked but that can be sorted out when I make this again!
