    I am like the others. It was easy to make and had few ingredients but it just didn't set well. Not like the photo. It was difficult to cut after 2 hrs int eh refrigerate. After being in the refrigerate 24+ hr it seems to have set better but still doesn't have that fire look of the photo. Still pretty sticky on the fingers. It does taste okay thought so it is not a waste.

    This fudge was a disaster for me! We ended up eating it on our ice cream because it never solidified.

    This might be the first taste-of-home recipe I have tried (and I've loved thousands) that hasn't worked out. It seems like something is missing to add some structure to this fudge, mine has been in the fridge for hours and is still completely soft. I definitely can't take it out of the pan, I ate some with a spoon and it's just goo.

    This was really easy and turned out good. I will be making it again!

    Quick and easy. Very well received! I had no problems with it keeping its texture. After sitting out, it was softer, but it was still great. Didn't take long for the whole batch to disappear!
