This fudge is virtually foolproof and so creamy you won't believe it. I've searched for years for the richest fudge, and this one does it for me. You can add just about anything you like to customize it.—Barbara Miller, Oakdale, Minnesota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 20, 2014

"I'm a regular baker and have made numerous kinds of fudge. I figured I'd give this one a try since it got such great reviews. Someone please tell me why both times I attempted this one, the chocolate seized? The first time I thought it was because I put the marshmallows and chocolate in at once, so the second time i added the chocolate chips slowly before adding the rest. But it seized before I had a chance to add all the chips. Why???"

"This is absolutely the best chocolate fudge I have ever had and so easy to fix!! I will never use any other recipe."

MY REVIEW

"This was very easy to prepare (no candy thermometer needed!). I used chopped hazelnuts instead of walnuts, which worked out very well. Also, I used 4 oz of the bittersweet chocolate and cut back a tad on the milk chocolate for a slightly richer chocolate flavor. This was tasty and made enough to last the entire holiday season. Thanks for a great recipe!"

"Best fudge recipe ever....make sure to use medium heat and I only stir occasionally. Stiring too much creates crystals which causes gritty fudge."
