Reviews for Triple Chocolate Fudge
"I have been making this fudge for the last few years for Christmas, everyone seems to love it and ask for it. One year I didn't have enough German chocolate so I added white chocolate to make up the difference! Now that is how I make it all the time!"
"Did I read the recipe wrong or something? After it came to the soft boil stage I put all that chocolate in and it immediately turned grainy and I couldn't get it out of the pot let alone put the fluff in it. What's the secret?"
"I made this fudge last Christmas for our daughter-in-law who has a catering business. She thought it was the best fudge she ever tasted and wanted the recipe for the business"
"I made this yummy fudge last year at Christmas when I received my magazine!!! It is amazing--it's a very nice to have if you do any family baking like I do w/my friends and family. We only need to make one batch of this and we have PLENTY of fudge left over! I am making it again tomorrow (12.04.10) w/my girl friends!!!!"
"I had never made fudge before and this was my first try. It turned out AWESOME. I took some to a friend at work who loved it. He took some home to his family and they all raved it was the best, creamiest fudge they had ever eaten."
"This recipe came out perfect. I carefully checked my thermometer and had all ingredients ready to go before I started. It came out creamy and delicious."
"This set up too quickly as I could not even get it out of the dutch oven without bending my metal spoon! It tastes good and was gobbled up but definitely did not look like the picture."
