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."

"Would like to know how much marshmallow creme would be equal to 32 large marshmallows ? Great Fudge."

"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."
