Reviews for Simple Macadamia Nut Fudge
"In addition to the 12 ounces of German sweet chocolate, the recipe should also have 1 package (12 ounces) of semisweet chocolate chips. We apologize for the error and it will be corrected here soon.Taste of Home Test Kitchen"
"Ingredients lists no chocolate chips but recipe calls for them. We made it without chocolate chips and with pecans. It turned out too soft and too nutty. I have made better fudge with better consistency and with far less fuss and cost -the German's sweet chocolate alone for this recipe cost me over nine dollars!"
"How can a dibetic eat this fudge with all this sugar in it?"
"would you tell me how much choc chips?"
