People would not quit hounding me for this. I made it for Christmas gifts with a few other kinds & this was all they'd talk about. They were threatening to steal it out of each other's mail boxes at work. I used white chips for the chocolate & vanilla instead of rum. Thanks for the winner recipe :)
I made three differant types of fudge this year from my Christmas Tray and this was really good. I've always had trouble getting the right consistancy for fudge and these directions made it really easy. I used a candy thermometer to measure the boiling time and it came out creamy and smooth. I did chill for about 2 hours to make sure it would cut and it was great. A differant taste from regular fudge and a nice treat. Thanks for posting.
I've made this twice now. The first time with the ingredients listed here (no nuts) and the second time I used Cinnamon eggnog, ground cinnamon instead of nutmeg, and vanilla instead of rum. Both times it turned out perfect and unbelievably delicious. This is a great recipe!!!!!
