  1. How recipedo I share the fantasy fudge
  2. Can you ever overlook the fudge ? Wondering why it is not shiny on the top?


  1. I always use a candy thermometer to softball stage. I just made it with Reese's new chocolate peanut spread let all know later just how it came out. I usually make chocolate or peanut butter so I figured why not!!!!!!
  2. I found this recipe on the back of a jar of marshmallow fluff and have been making it for over 15 years now. I cut the recipe in half and my pan is approx. 7x12 and it is still plenty of fudge! I use this recipe and substitute peanut butter chips, butterscotch and sometimes I layer different flavors. I have never had this recipe fail! The very first time I made it I made the mistake of having a pan too small, I'll never forget that mistake!
  3. Love it! My fave fudge.
  4. Great fudge, but not as chocolaty as I hoped.
  5. I made this fudge from my jar of marshmallow fluff last nite. It's very smooth and rich, not grainy at all. I used pecans instead of walnuts cause that's what I had in the pantry. My jar didn't say to use a 6 quart saucepan, but I wish it had. I started in a 3 1/2 quart pan and had to transfer boiling sugar napalm to a larger pot 2 minutes into the boil. Incredibly easy, large return for the effort, and great fudge flavor. We deem it a keeper.


I live in the San Francisco area and love it here. I discovered Recipezaar (then Kitchen) in 2001 and have been so happy to have my favorite recipes stored safely here. I am mother to 7 and grandmother to 7. I love to knit, smock, sew, etc., but my favorite hobby of the moment is traditional rug hooking. This is a sample of what I do.? It's called "November".? I dyed most of the wool myself. It is made from wool flannel, cut into strips a little less than 1/4" and then worked into a linen backing. This is my 3rd rug.
