Foolproof Fudge

This is my wife's fudge recipe, and she's been making it as long as I have known her. The unsweetened chocolate is my idea, but she prefers it without. I like the more bitter flavor. Prep time does not include time to cool and set.

  • 1 cup chopped nuts (toasted if desired or more to taste, preferably LOTS MORE)
  • 1 12 teaspoons vanilla extract

    This fudge is great. The best one I have found. Grands love it, so make at least once a month. All day job, some want semi-sweet choc.So make both. So easy to make also........Thanks Toby

    this didnt seem so good to me. i added the unsweetend chocolate and it tasted a lot like chocolate chips. i put nuts in and everything and it was very very stiff and solid not soft and smooth like i was hoping. perhaps that is how it is suppose to be but it wasnt for me. it was very smooth though.

    This is the best fudge I have ever had! It was super easy to make and came out perfect. It was very chocolatey without being overly sweet.

    Great, smooth fudge recipe. I made it with homemade condensed milk, and I messed up the measuring there a bit, so the fudge was a little too soft, but still tasted fabulous. A couple of days uncovered in the frige sufficiently firmed it up. I added crushed peppermint candy canes for that fesitve look/flavor. The peppermint tasted just super with the dark chocolate-ness (used 70% cocoa chocolate bars plus the unsweetened chocolate).

    Am giving this one 5 stars, because it is what it says it is, and does what it's supposed to do. My fault for not reading the recipe and reviews more closely - I was simply looking for a very quick fudge recipe to throw together. That it is, just not to our flavor preference - too dark and "un" sweet for us - but those who like that type of fudge will love this recipe. So, 5 stars because it's not the recipe's fault we didn't care for it!
