Reviews for Halloween Layered Fudge
"This recipe was exactly what it promised. An easy to follow recipe with a festive halloween touch. I was a bit worried when it seemed there was a lot less milk left over for the melting of the second batch, but it melted quite smoothly and I had no issues. The only substitute I made was white chocolate chips rather than candy coating."
"To all the folks out there who are NOT diabetic informed! This recipe IS DIABETIC FRIENDLY!!! With only 9 grams of carbs. it is not that bad compared to other sweets out there. Let me say again what others have. Diabetics CAN have some sugar!! Just not very much it's all about choices and exchanges. The nutritional facts state you can exchange 1/2 starch, 1/2 fat which means for this piece of fudge I have to give up 1/2 starch like bread and a 1/2 serving of fat like butter. I have been diabetic for years now and occasionally I DO eat some candy I just don't eat other things that day. I thoroughly enjoyed a couple of pieces of this fudge and still maintained my diabetic diet!!"
"I tried this recipe for the first time! I used two packages of Make and Mold candy wafers: Chocolate Truffle and orange-colored vanilla wafers. I did use the sweetened condensed milk as recipe instructed, but I used a double boiler to prepare this fudge. I DID ad about 2 tsp. to 1 Tbsp. more of evaporated milk-just enough to keep orange layer spreadable! I kept the orange extract as is and omitted the food coloring since I already had the candy wafers available! I didn't use chocolate chips! This IS a great recipe for a halloween treat! I covered the fudge after adding orange layer to the chocolate layer and then I chilled fudge until firm! I did chill the chocolate layer 10 minutes as recipe stated! delowoenstein"
"Embarrassed to admit I actually had a little trouble with this. The top layer was quite thin and really hard to spread on the fudge layer. The 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk had very little left in it after I used the 1 cup for the bottom. I used vanilla candy coating and melted it in the microwave. Did I over-heat it? Under-heat it? Help! (It is tasty)"
"I am thinking of making for Christmas using red and cherry extract in place of the orange."
"The orange extract is a nice touch."
"Did not get this recipe made for halloween. Used cinnamon flavoring. Next time I will use more the 1/4 tsp extra. I also want to try rum extract."
"super sweet! but kids loved it"
"To those that think diabetics can't have candy: I've had diabetes all my life. We can eat everything other people eat. it's all about serving size and swapping one thing for another. All sugars are carbs and are identical to all other carbs. You can swap a sweet item for a slice of bread. Or for a serving of potatoes or rice. Carbs are carbs. A small piece of this is good for the soul and worth foregoing a slice of bread! Love this recipe. Made it for friends and all were delighted."
