Reviews forHalloween Layered Fudge
"To hazel clark, along with the other answer answers You can go to your baking section and it should be there or in the section where you buy choc chips. It is called bark. It comes in choc and white choc. Usually in my area it isn't called candy coating, it's choc bark or white bark. They come in thick squares in a block .I look forward to making this this next week for the fall along with cookies made to look likecandy corn."
"Made this fudge for a party, and it was a huge hit! Instead of using candy coating for the top layer, I just used white chocolate chips. Didn't use the orange flavoring but instead put in just a drop of vanilla (so it wouldn't be too sweet) for the top layer. Also, felt the top layer was a little thin, so I marbled it with the bottom layer, making swirls using a butter knife. Great effect, looking really neat for Halloween!"
"Loved your halloween recipes, what is candy coating please, maybe we call it by another name in the UK, can you enlighten me please. Many Thanks. Hazel Clark"
"To all the folks out there who are NOT diabetic informed! This recipe IS DIABETIC FRIENDLY!!! With only 9 grams of carbs. it is not that bad compared to other sweets out there. Let me say again what others have. Diabetics CAN have some sugar!! Just not very much it's all about choices and exchanges. The nutritional facts state you can exchange 1/2 starch, 1/2 fat which means for this piece of fudge I have to give up 1/2 starch like bread and a 1/2 serving of fat like butter. I have been diabetic for years now and occasionally I DO eat some candy I just don't eat other things that day. I thoroughly enjoyed a couple of pieces of this fudge and still maintained my diabetic diet!!"
"Embarrassed to admit I actually had a little trouble with this. The top layer was quite thin and really hard to spread on the fudge layer. The 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk had very little left in it after I used the 1 cup for the bottom. I used vanilla candy coating and melted it in the microwave. Did I over-heat it? Under-heat it? Help! (It is tasty)"
"I am thinking of making for Christmas using red and cherry extract in place of the orange."
"The orange extract is a nice touch."
"Did not get this recipe made for Halloween. Used cinnamon flavoring. Next time I will use more the 1/4 tsp extra. I also want to try rum extract."
"super sweet! but kids loved it"
