MY REVIEW

"This was so easy and took such little time. It will be a nice addition to the other Halloween treats plus it's delicious! As others suggested it would be nice to use red or green for Christmas. This is definitely a keeper."

MY REVIEW

"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)"
