I normally try hard to adhere to a recipe as it's written when trying it the first time. In this case however, I kept some of the reviews and my prior experience making this type of simple fudge in mind before proceeding, as I was concerned about wasting ingredients. The typical ratio of chips to milk with this type of fudge is 2.5 cups chips to 14 ounces of milk. That's what I have always used, and it's always worked out for me. I just could not see this setting up as written and many of the reviews confirmed that, therefore I used 2.5 cups chips. The end result was a firm but creamy textured fudge. I also chose dried tart cherries instead of candied, for more of a sweet/tart contrast and next time I would add a touch more almond extract.


This fudge is delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and found the consistancy perfect and the flavor excellent.

I listened to the other reviews and added an extra half a bag of chocolate chips, so it wouldn't be too soft. Still turned out slightly softer than I like, will add whole bag next time. Tasted great, everyone loved it. Thanks!!!
