My children have always loved root beer floats so I came up with this fudgy treat just for them. Sweet and creamy with that familiar root beer flavor, it's always a best seller at school bake sales. —Jennifer Fisher, Austin, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 9, 2014

Made this and was it ever wonderful!!! Very creamy and it does taste like a root beer float.

I've been asked for the recipe already. It set very well and the two tone color is pretty.

This fudge is easy to make, but the color didn't work and it didn't set very well. The root beer layer crumbled so badly that I had great trouble cutting it. It has a decent flavor, though it's extremely sweet.

making this soon, but just a note. I have been using the tin foil pans for years to make fudge, just coat with cooking spray and let set up with your fudge. normally pops right out and you can get many uses from one pan.
