Reviews for Gumdrop Fudge
"Very pretty on a tray of Christmas cookies, but very, very sweet"
"A very pretty fudge. I prefer chocolate fudge myself, but I love how pretty a gift this makes. When I sliced the gum drops (use the "spice ones for better flavor", I placed the sliced pieces in a bowl of white sugar to keep them from sticking to one another. easy to do and so nice for gift giving!"
"Delicious and easy. Looks very pretty on a plate of goodies!"
"Yum!! I used fruit slice candies and it came out great!"
"This was one of the easiest and most delicious candy recipes I have ever tried. I took some to work and some to my family's Christmas gathering and everyone wanted the recipe! I used 2 bags of vanilla chips instead of the candy coating, which worked out just fine. I will definitely make this recipe again!"
"What a joke!! Not even fudge!! Would not set up at all even in the freezer!!"
"Puckettmomof4, could you have used evaporated milk instead of condensed? just a thought."
"I couldn't get mine to set up like fudge. I put in fridge and it never got solid, what did I do wrong:("
"To Smoothmotion: Yes, you can use Ghirardelli white baking chips in place of the candy coating....and your fudge will be just as good if not better!"
