    Unfortunately this recipe is so sweet you can't eat it. On the positive side, it is really pretty!

    Okay I guess but nothing special. Looks pretty but way too sweet for our taste. I ended up tossing most of it out! I gave it three stars because of how pretty it would look with a few pieces on a serving tray of cookies!

    it was different to have this Christmas, however, too sweet & I didn't get the "creaminess" that fudge should have... probably will not make this again...
