Ok taste, but broke apart into crumbles. Impossible to lift out of pan without tearing foil, could not cut into squares because it is so hard, it just shattered into shards . Very difficult to salvage, and again the texture was so hard that it really wasn’t like fudge at all. Will definitely be looking for a different recipe next time.
I don't use canned frosting, so I made 2 cups of buttercream vanilla frosting. This fudge is way too sweet and "frosting-like". Tastes like hardened frosting. I will not make this again. Going back to sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate chips with crushed candy canes.
I made this recipe again tonight but made a couple of changes. First off, I used Ghirardelli's white chocolate chips instead of baking chips. Then I used only 1/2 a can of vanilla frosting as an entire can tasted too much like vanilla frosting. I then used 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract to get more flavor and it was a huge hit! Way better than the first batch that was made according to the recipe. Will definitely make again.
Well I must have done something wrong cause it turned out really bad. All I could taste was frosting.
Very Good. This was easy to prepare for a quick dessert to bring to a Christmas gathering. The only change I made to the recipe is that I added Peppermint extract along with the vanilla extract.
I've made this particular fudge recipe as holiday treats for the hospital Volunteer Resource Office & for the other depts. where I volunteer! This fudge goes over really well! Sometimes instead of using white candy disks or chocolate candy disks, I've used colored disks, depending on the holiday! I still would use the crushed candies, though, & the mint extract! I'd even used peanut-butter-flavored Make & Mold candy disks, & omitted the mint flavoring, but used a can of coconut-pecan frosting! Thank you, Suzette Jury, for this recipe!It is a recipe I've used time and again! And this fudge is so simple to prepare, too! delowenstein
Turned out great. I hammered the candies (in a baggie) to really small bits, and they covered well without any pieces that would be hard to bite (as per oher reviews). Nice flavor, though I agree with another reviewer... it's not true fudge. Nonetheless it made for a nice treat. I'm going to make it again, this time with spearmint extract and green spearmint candies.
Very Good and everyone loved it.
This was quick and easy. Just right for a Holiday recipe. I am going to leave out the crushed peppermint candies next time. Couldn't crush them small enough and they were too hard to bite. I would consider this a candy treat and not a true fudge, but that's just me.
