Reviews for White Christmas Fudge
"Unfortunately this recipe is so sweet you can't eat it. On the positive side, it is really pretty!"
"Okay I guess but nothing special. Looks pretty but way too sweet for our taste. I ended up tossing most of it out! I gave it three stars because of how pretty it would look with a few pieces on a serving tray of cookies!"
"it was different to have this Christmas, however, too sweet & I didn't get the "creaminess" that fudge should have... probably will not make this again..."
"This was my first time making fudge and the recipe was easy. Everyone loved the fudge and asked for the recipe. This is definitely a keeper"
"delicious, but I prefer milk or dark chocolate"
"Easy to make and quite tasty. Will make again."
"This sounds amzingly good! I'll make this for Christmas. And it makes a lovely gift too indeed. Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe! :-)"
"This is an amazing fudge. It will be part of my Christmas traditional recipes. Very easy to make."
"I made this the other day, it went down great, I did chop the fruit up fine, along with the nuts found it easier for cutting will make again"
"I made this recipe last night! The only thing I would suggest is chopping the fruit up quite fine. When slicing the fudge after it sets, any larger pieces of fruit or nuts tend to cause the fudge to flake. I had lots of crumbs when I was done (but I ate every morself of those crumbs!). But it's VERY tasty stuff. I will make this throughout the year. At 32 calories for each piece, this just became my new Weight Watchers evening snack!"
"just a note so someone else does not make my same boo-boo....white almond bark is not the same as white baking chocolate...."
"I made this fudge every Christmas, it`s an easy recipe, no candy thermometer needed. The color and nuts are perfect for Christmas."
"To the person asking about switching out pecans or walnuts for the almonds, it should be absolutely okay to do this. Shouldn't be a problem as it is always a matter of your taste."
"Did 3 stars because i haven't made it yet. Anyone, could you use pecans or walnuts(english or black) instead of the almonds? I need to know quick"
"Great Recipe! My family loves this fudge. It is very rich, so cut it into very small squares. My all-time favorite fudge!"
"From Jewett? WOW!! I thought I was the only person from there. I've been gone alot of years but my family still lives there."
"I have been making this fudge for a few years now and everyone loves it. Very easy and pretty too"
"I made this around Christmas and still getting complements on it. Its very pretty and easy and tastes great. A beautiul holiday fudge."
