Reviews for Mackinac Fudge
"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!!"
"small and delishious! what could be more than that!"
"This is the best recipe for fudge I have ever tried! Came out smooth with absolutely NO grains! Thanks!"
