    I made this fudge on 1/31/2019. I did not use the nuts, however as there are people in my retirement community who are allergic to nuts. I used a total of 1/2 cup broken miniature pretzel twists and broken peppermint candy canes in place of nuts. I also used 3 cups of bittersweet chocolate chips. This fudge was very good-I took some to our weekly potluck on 2/1/2019 and it was enjoyed! I'd also sampled some as I was cutting it-fudge recipes are keepers for me and this is now one of these recipes for me to use!

    followed the recipe exactly, and was disappointed. Using semisweet choc chips made it taste too sweet, i wish I would have used milk chocolate instead. Also this was very difficult to work with but I guess thats comes with making any fudge in general
