    this was an easy recipe to follow and the result was delicious I have already been asked to make it again  -  03 Jun 2012


    This recipe is not supposed to be like normal fudge. It is supposed to be hard on top and goey in the middle. This taste awesome!  -  11 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I am NOT a baker, I don't have time and I'm not very good at it! But as I was visiting a friend for tea and the British shops have very liitle good pudding choice I decided to go for it! This was SO easy and SO quick to make and the end result was delicious! I did add a fudge icing (from this site also) and re-melted the whole thing in the oven before serving but ALL at the table raved about it and the pecan's gave it that something extra. Highly recommended for impressing friends with very little effort!  -  15 Jun 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
