    Best fudge recipe i have tried.  -  07 Nov 2010


    Very tasty and amazingly quick and easy. Lost count of the number of times I've made this.  -  30 Apr 2011


    fantastic recipe! I have made this so many times for my family, friends and even folk at work ask for it for what is now known as fudgy friday since I discovered the recipe a few months ago. Never had any bother with it, you just need to mix chocolate in swiftly and it turns out a beautiful smooth fudge. Even my chef sister in law wanted the recipe! Lovely!!  -  30 Apr 2012
