you are suppose to use Half & Half (not milk) and unsalted butter..
OH YUM! It's been years since I've made real, from scratch, old fashioned fudge & this recipe does not disappoint! I had a crazy time cooking as my new pans are too wide at the top to clip the candy thermometer on so I had to hold a top-heavy digital thermometer in the chocolate the whole time! It was about 11pm when I finally got the fudge into the pan to cool & then went to bed. It's a bit dried out this morning & didn't cut into perfect squares, but it still tastes delicious! I'll be making it again. I forgot what I was missing all these years of making marshmallow fluff fudge. :)
The taste is average. I Have much better. The directions were vague so unless someone has made fudge before, one won't know how to compensate for the inadequate directions. I would never bring this out in public. I might try it again but alter the ingredients. So basically, I will make fudge. Just not this recipe. IMO, everyone should try something at least once. Everyone's palate is different. This didn't reach a great spot on mine.
Fantastic recipe: great flavour & smooth texture. Thank-you.
When making recipes like this, I find that, if I want to get a really great flavor, I need to use things like whole milk, quality chocolate, unsalted butter & pure vanilla extract! And so I did, & we -holics had one of the best chocolate pig-outs ever! Thanks for yet another great recipe keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag]
This is my 2nd time to make one of your fudges so I made sure I get it right this time. They were sweet (4 cups!), fudgy and so good! Even DH preferred this over the one with nuts. Probably has to do with using the chocolate squares instead of powder. Thanks! Made for PAC.
