    Claire #3's Note:

    Old fashioned fudge like your grandma used to make -- no condensed milk, no marshmallow creme, just the basics. Follow the directions precisely and you'll have a delicious, non-grainy fudge. Stirring at the wrong time causes graininess, so follow directions.

      Sorry-I had high hopes for this recipe, I thought I might get old fashioned fudge, I followed this recipe to the tee...I got tootsie rolls...not even close to fudge more like candy. I also burnt out my mixer and wasted $6.00 for the butter & chocolate. I think I will just buy it from the gourmet shop from now on if I can find one in my area....sorry!
