I love this recipe for fudge. Nice and creamy texture. I like to double up on the nuts to take away from the sweetness. This fudge recipe has always worked for me as long as I boil for exactly 10 minutes and beat for exactly 5.

I would like to say that I love to bake and love fudge. That being said, I was a fudge virgin and had never made it before. The author of he recipe negated to disclose how high do you heat the fudge? I boiled for 5 minutes on high, and my fudge burnt. I am sure, that had I known you do not cook fudge on high on the stove, that this recipe would have turned out. This information should have been disclosed in the cooking instuctions. The rsult: an 8"x8" dark brown brick(not kidding, I could not even score the surface with a knife)

This recipe has eluded me for years. My mom made it for years and lost it! This is exactly what I was looking for. I agree with the member who boiled it for 10 minutes and stirred for 5 minutes. Turns out perfectly. Just like I remember!!

Excellent tasting and very easy to make.I've made 6 batches in the last 24 hours to give away to co-workers. I did struggle to make the 1 inch cubes retain their shape when putting in gift boxes. After trying to cut it at room temp, at semi-chilled and totally refridgerated- I concluded that the fudge cubes turned out perfect-shaped when 100% refridgerated. Note: they were very hard to carve at 35 degrees so please be careful with the knife! Just go slow!
