10/23/08: OMG!! Amazing!! This rivals any fudge I've ever tasted & is definitely the best fudge I've ever made!! Because I wasn't confident I could do this, I made half a batch & poured into an 8" square pan. But, I had no problems at all with this recipe!! The fudge is so rich & smooth & creamy & perfect. So perfect in fact, that I entered it in the local County Fair & won first place!! (pretty good for a first attempt at a recipe!!) Now my mind is swirling with thoughts of changing the chocolate chips to peanut butter chips or white chocolate or... 10/10/09: I changed the chocolate chips to peanut butter chips and the pecans to peanuts - awesome! The texture is not quite as smooth as it is when using the chocolate chips but still very creamy, soft & delicious. This year I entered this version in the county fair in the "any other variety" fudge & won first place!!
