Reviews forNut Fudge
"Read the reviews about the fudge being too sweet. Instead of using 4 1/2 cups of sugar I opted to only add 3 1/2 cups. I then added a tsp of vanilla and a pinch of salt. Delicious!"
"Made this for the first time this year. Very easy to make, but it is VERY sweet. I could only eat a small bite. Everyone at work loved it though."
"this is the same one i've used for years. now i add a pinch or two of salt and add a teaspoon or so of instant xpresso to the milk and sugar mix. yumm"
"This fudge is great. I cannot believe that some of the reviews said it was too sweet. Don't they know fudge is supposed to be very sweet .This recipe is excellent. If they do not want sweet they need to not make fudge."
"easy but it was so sweet that even my sgr. addicted hubby didn't eat much!"
"I made this recipe as written because of it's high rating. I had to throw it away because it was extremely sweet."
"Very Good and easy!!"
"Wish I could give this recipe more than 5 stars! We made fudge to give to our neighbors for Christmas. One of our friends sent us a thank you note saying the last piece of fudge created martial strife as they negotiated for the last piece! LOLThe fudge was very easy to make and one batch makes a ton. We keep thinking about this fudge so I have a feeling we won't wait until Christmas to make it again!"
"I know this recipe from one of my Mom's old cookbooks (Mamie Eisenhower's Fudge) and have been making it for many years. I make a dark chocolate version of this fudge for my Mom, just change the chocolates, you can also add dried fruits instead or with the nuts. In the dark version, dried craisins, cherries are delicious (at least according to my Mom-it's her favorite). To Encscally-there are two reasons that fudge will not set: one is the boil, meaning the boil should be a full scale boil, all across the top, then immediately reduce the heat; second humid conditions-any kind of dampness, even cold dampness can mess with this type of fudge--could be from a humidifier, the outdoor weather, even the dishwasher. I hope that helps. Thanks so much for posting the recipe, its an old recipe and its sad how many of those get lost, also I will forward it to my son, so that I don't have to type my own and it's many variations--"
"The most awesome fudge ever and easy to make!"
