Takes a bit of time, but well worth the trouble. I do not know how long it takes to cook, but I am guessing at 30 minutes

Not good. The fudge I made turned out to be a sticky, goopy mess. It tastes like and has the consistency of corn syrup. This is after I froze the fudge for several hours. Very disappointed. To be fair, the corn syrup I used was quite old. Still disappointing though.
