In the directions I think it should say to boil all of the ingredients till the sugar melts. There was so much sugar in the recipe that even when I let it boil for 7 minutes, the sugar wouldn't melt. You also have to stir it constantly or else it burns. I ended up with really granular burnt fudge. The directions need to be clearer.


This recipe is perfect every time! I start the time when the syrup starts to boil, another recipe on this site says to do that, too! I have not had it burn, I stir it quite a bit while it cooks. Watch the heat. Thanks for the great recipe, I now can make chocolate and the peanut butter fudge (from this site) without fail! My mother used to say some people are candy makers and some not, I am so glad I can do it!


Yikes! Not EXACTLY "fool-proof." What went wrong? The sugar never melted and started to scorch. (I remember a recipe like this from years ago, but never had trouble with it before) Seemed liked there was too much sugar in proportion to the other ingredients?
