This is good fudge, but how are people microwaving the nuts for 3 minutes without burning them? Even though I stirred every minute, my pecans got sadly scalded and I had to throw them away. I feel like the directions are reversed, and the nuts should be microwaved for a minute and the chocolate mixture should be microwaved for three minutes. At one minute, my chocolate chips weren't nearly melted enough to mix into the other ingredients.I only put in half of the cinnamon and I still thought it was a bit too dominant. Unless you are a REALLY big fan of cinnamon, don't put in a full teaspoon!

I've been using this recipe for years. It is a huge hit with my family and my co-workers. It's simple to make, but people think you are a genius for knowing how to make it.

This recipe is delicious. I made some for my neighbor for Christmas and he told me it is the best fudge he ever had.

I would REALLY appreciate it if recipes were done in the "traditional" way and not microwave!!!!! I DO NOT like preparing foods in microwaves, seriously, just for kicks I had made recipes using the microwave directions and converted it over to "traditional" methods, not only did it turn out better, it saved me no more time than doing it the traditional way! In fact I had chocolate that started to burn, melted things that would have been so much faster and easier than constantly pulling it out of the microwave, stirring, putting it back in, etc., those processes actually took longer and the results weren't anywhere near as good! Microwave cooking is NOT that great!

Well loved by all! I am not a coffee drinker but this has a hint that is not too overwhelming to the un-initiated. Extracts such as almond or orange are a great substitute if coffee overtones are not desired.

This is one of my family's favorite fudge recipes!I can never leave recipes alone... so made the coffee almost like "mud" to add and decreased the amount of nuts just a bit (I used about 3/4 cup). Everyone loved it and it's now being requested for Christmas and birthdays!
