Absolutely love this recipe.....I have made 4 batches this weekend....of different flavors......LOVE LOVE LOVE IT......
Is it 5 ounces of evap milk or one can. all of my cans are 12 oz?
What a fun twist on fudge. But be warned, this is for those with serious sweet tooths.
You'll also want to make sure to use the root beer concentrate and not an extract. I made that mistake at first and couldn't figure out what went wrong. It didn't get brown at all. My husband was the one who noticed the ingredient called for was concentrate and I had an extract. Thought they were the same thing but when I went to the store I found the McCormick concentrate. It worked beautifully.
Does it make that much difference if you use a different brand of root beer extract?
My base did not turn brown like the picture but it did set and tasted great! Maybe I need to add a little more of the root beer flavoring to get the color right...!?
This fudge is awesome! I've made it 5 times already and each and everytime, we can't stop eating it! I took it to a family reunion and heard many yells of "who made this fudge!" and give me the recipe! I did purchase the root beer extract off of Amazon and it gives the same color as the picture! I don't like root beer, but this is a winner!
