    i have just made this recipe after being in york for the day. they have a fudge shop called the 'fudge kitchen'. they say that to get fudge to set smoothly is to work it until the fudge temp and table temp are the same, only then will it set. also - working it breaks down the sugar crystals and makes it really smooth. i defy anyone that does this to say that their fudge has not set!!!!  -  05 Jun 2012


    DO not make this fudge - I have made fudge before and it should have set once it reached softball but it didn't. I think the fruit adds too much moisture. I hadn't read reviews as I found this on my phone and it did have 3 stars. wish I could give it 0 stars!  -  15 Nov 2011


    Seriously a waste of money, time and energy. I followed this recipe to the letter and have ended up with thick strawberry soup. It looks nothing like the deceptively perfect image shown above. Money down the drain, folks. Zero stars, not one.  -  14 Mar 2012
