"Made this for the first time this year. Very easy to make, but it is VERY sweet. I could only eat a small bite. Everyone at work loved it though."

"This fudge is great. I cannot believe that some of the reviews said it was too sweet. Don't they know fudge is supposed to be very sweet .This recipe is excellent. If they do not want sweet they need to not make fudge."
