Reviews for Mackinac Fudge
"This recipe is a variation of the Fantasy Fudge Recipe (only more complicated) that you can find on the jet-puff marshmallow creme jar. It is what is called a no fail recipe. I am pretty sure that the actual Mackinac Fudge is not made with marshmallows since they creme it on marble. Also, instead of milk you could use half & half for a richer fudge."
"Amazing!! I sprinkled turbinado sugar on top for decoration and texture. The recipe was fairly easy, but you have to have everything ready and move fast because once the chocolate goes in it starts coming together immediately. Everyone at my Christmas party raved about it."
"I have this exact recipe. Mine is called "Fannie Mae Fudge" lol. It is a very good recipe and does make a lot! My recipe calls for a jelly roll pan. 15" x 10" x 1". It makes perfect size pieces when cut."
"So easy and yummy too."
"The best fudge ever!"
"This is THE best recipe for fudge I have ever made. I followed the directions exactly and it came out perfectly smooth and delicious. Be warned, though, it is addicting."
"Even though not exactly Mackinac fudge - close enough to make me happy. Grew up vacationing there my entire childhood. Live far away now - was nice to share a taste and some memories with my adult children. The platter was gone in less than 24 hours. Glad I tucked some away for Christmas day :-)"
"My first time making fudge - GREAT recipe! This is a no-brainer if you follow the instructions"
"Use a recipe that indicates the temperature needed during cooking, before adding marshmallows. Evidently mine was too hot when I added the chocolate because the chocolate broke and the fudge was ruined."
"it is truly Mackinac fudge! I used dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet - It is awesome!!"
