Pecan Toffee Fudge

This quick fudge is always popular wherever it shows up and makes great gifts for loved ones and friends. People love the creaminess and toffee bits. And it's so easy, even young children can help make it—with a little supervision! —Diane Willey, Bozman, Maryland

    Kind of hard to mix the cream cheese & powdered sugar with my hand mixer. It would work better with a stand mixer. I went ahead & added the almond extract to add some wetness to help hold it together. Then I added the chocolate & itg came together ok.It is delicious! Also I only had a 4 ounce bar of chocolate & it worked just fine.Definitely a keeper.

    This was a quick fudge recipe that we really enjoyed. I did find that my fudge crumbled a bit after it had hardened up in the refrigerator. We still ate the crumbs!!

    Creamy and decadent!! A fudge WITHOUT marshmallow cream, which I don't always have on hand. I love it!

    I made it just as recipe said.... It sounded so good! I was a little disappointed though, the almond was a lil overwhelming. I will def try again but I will leave almond out & add more toffee

    One of the worst recipes I have ever tried. Tasted nasty. I would rather spend hours making fudge than this. I even bought heath candy. Waste of time and money. Can't believe this recipe made it to a national magazine. I love Taste of Home, but this was very bad.
