Three-Chocolate Fudge Recipe

Three-Chocolate Fudge Recipe

I make this fudge at Christmastime to give to friends and neighbors. That tradition started years ago when I made more candy than my husband, three sons and I could eat, so we shared it. It's a tasty tradition I'm glad to continue. —Betty Grantham, Hanceville, Alabama

"Great recipe! Making sure you are patient with the caramel sauce is key. It must come to a rapid boil in order to set. It's hard to stop yourself from eating more than one piece!"

"There is only one reason I joined. To say this is the worst fudge I have ever made. Followed directions to the T. It never set up, could not even spoon it out, it was even too sticky and thick to work with to salvage it. In the trash it went. Such a total waste of money, time and effort. Never will I use this or any other Taste of Home recipes. So annoyed!!"

"I have a fudge recipe that is a favorite with friends and family but wanted to try something different. I made this recipe exactly as written and I'm delighted with the results. It seems to be better after a couple of days in the fridge. Take it out and let it warm a bit so it will cut nicely. Thanks for sharing. This recipe has gone into my box of favs."

"A little more work than my regular fudge but equally as good. My husband was little help in critiquing saying "fudge is fudge." Not true. He did offer up that this doesn't leave a burn/taste after he has swallowed it, which is a good thing. I like that it makes so much. I send 2/3 of the pan off with my son."

"Recipe sounds wonderful and I will try it, but this recipe is not Mamie Eisenhower's Million Dollar Fudge. I have a card with the original recipe that was printed in the Women's National Press Club's "Who Says We Can't Cook!" At that time copies could be purchased for two dollars plus fifteen cent postage. Lucy"

"I haven't made this yet, but I definitely plan to! To answer the first reviewer's question about using chocolate chips versus chocolate bars- chocolate chips have stabilizers in them to help them keep their shape when melted, whereas the bars don't, so that could be why the chocolate bars are used instead. Can't wait to try this!!!"

I use all the best Chocolate I can find...its so creamy and smooth.............follow the Recipe exactly, you can't go wrong! If somethings not right, it's because YOU did something wrong! Use Hershey Milk Chocolate Bars for the Milk Choc. the plain. The 2 types of semi sweet are the "baking choc squares" and the Choc chips........only use the best Brands!"

"This fudge had a very good taste to it, but the texture was an issue for me. I'm not sure what exactly it is that's making the texture odd...maybe the type chocolate I used? Since there are several positive comments about this recipe, I may try it again in case I overlooked something. I'm sure it' something on my end though."

"I've been making this since it first appeared in TOH years ago. I love that I don't need a candy thermometer, and I've never had trouble with it setting up right or having the sugar be crystalized. I vary it quite a bit. We like dark chocolate, so sometimes I replace the candy bars with more semisweet, and often I'll use peppermint extract in that batch for dark chocolate/peppermint fudge. Only time I ever had trouble was the year I tried using the bittersweet chips. I don't think there was enough fat or sugar in them or something, because that really didn't work well. However, that was my only fail in years of making a couple of batches every Christmas for many, many years. (Oh, and it DOES make a big batch! I just have a very large family and take this everywhere we go!) :D"
