Reviews for 5-Ingredient Fudge
"Just like my grandma always made! Great tip with lining the pan, makes it so much easier."
"The kids declared this their new favorite homemade fudge. A cinch to make."
"Creamy, delicious fudge. I would love to try to make this fudge with different kinds of chips and adding things in, such as vanilla chips and candy cane bits or oreo cookie pieces. Easy to make, but found that it thickens up quickly. If you have an extra body to spread it in the pan, it helps."
"Delicious and oh so easy!"
"This is SOOOO good. I have to force myself to only eat one small piece at a time."
"I've made this for years with all semisweet chips but have never used butter. Lining the pan with plastic wrap works just as well as foil. This fudge is quick, easy, and hard to stay away from once it's finished."
"Excellent - easy to make and yummy."
"If I had to name this recipe, I'd call it happy children! And it was really easy to make. I was out of vanilla and used almond extract instead."
"Absolutely amazing! This fudge is so quick to make and tastes fabulous!"
"I love fudge and all things pumpkin spice so I had to try this recipe. I was skeptical about the combination; but the addition of the pumpkin spice to the fudge gave it a unique flavor that was very good and a nice change from the usual fudge recipes. This recipe is very similar to one I have used for years and I always add a tablespoon of strong brewed coffee or a 1/4 teaspoon of espresso powder to my fudge recipes - you won't even know the coffee is there but it enhances the flavor of the chocolate."
