Reviews for Root Beer Float Fudge
"I used the McCormick root beer concentrate (3 teaspoons) and it was plenty brown. I used 1 teaspoon of vanilla for the white layer."
"five stars. I made this as directed and my only change was to add 3 tbs of root beer concentrate and I added food coloring to get the brown color. Everyone wanted the recipe"
"I made this following these directions to a "T" and it has some issues...1. No Brown/White layers...both are white...where's you get the color from? 2. The fudge doesn't set up well...needs more chips and half as much of the Sugar/butter/evap milk mixture to solidify! It is REALLY sweet, not being a smart aleck....and I added a 3rd tsp of Root Beer flavoring. Anyone have any other suggestions to make this turn out well?? Not sure what to do with my pan of not-so-solid root beer fudge!!"
"Very good, but looks nothing like the picture. My adjustments: 3 tsps of root beer extract, 1 tsps of vanilla, 10 oz of vanilla chips, 2.5 c of sugar. Gives you more of that root beer pop!"
"My family loves this recipe. The key is to use rootbeer candy concentrate NOT rootbeer flavoring. The candy concentrate I find at my favorite candy supply store fives this fudge a dark brown color and super rootbeer flavor."
