"I had this recipe crystallize on me once (had success before) then I fallowed nutfudge's advice in previous comments. Cutting down sugar to 2 cups and washing down sides during cooking. It has turned out each time. Everyone really likes this fudge."

"Loved this. I did add a bit of vanilla to the white mixture to offset the orange part. This will definitely be going in the holiday rotation. I'm thinking of adding some orange zest next time, too."

"I made the fudge today. It's just ok. I think the recipe needs salt added. I gave this fudge a 5 star because, it came out perfect. Maybe, I just don't like orange fudge?"

"My employer had a 'Top Chef' competition for our Open House where we invited our customers and vendors out to enjoy some food and gathering. I wanted to make something that would win. Lo & behold, I was right! Taste of Home was right! I won the competition and a great big trophy!! I knew I loved this magazine, the site, and everyone associated with Taste of Home!! Thank you!"

"First attempt at fudge making and it turned out perfect. I used 2 and 1/4 cups of sugar and did a slow to boil which took forever but was well worth it. I did brush the sides of the pot down with water once it boiled as suggested and boiled until tempt reached 236 as noted by others. I did not stir once the boiling started. I poured hot mixture into another bowl already containing the chips and cream. I am not a big fudge fan but these are fantastic. Most fudge is too sweet and rich for me. These are prefect. Kids love them, already had a neighbor ask for the recipe! Next I will make a key lime fudge, which follows the same idea as these except to add key line juice and rind"
