"I've been making this same recipe for years. My family loves it and it's the only fudge recipe or bought that tastes just like a family friend used to gift us with when I was a little girl. I looked forward to that fudge all year long, so I was thrilled when I found this when my kids were little."

"It was good but it doesn't taste like a true chocolate fudge. It tastes more like rich chocolate candy bar because it is very chocolatey and thick but not fluffy."

"The perfect fudge!~! I used about 1/4 c. of finely chopped pecans which added visual interest and a bit of substance to the recipe. There is NO other fudge recipe."
