I cooked this at temperature recommended and even though i got a crispy topping the underneath was not cooked, i ended up cooking for another 30 minutes at a higher temperature. The flavour was nice though. - 16 Jan 2013
Baked fudge is NOT fudge. I can see how the name is misleading, but it is NOT supposed to be like the fudge that you get at the candy store. It's also not like brownies-- it's supposed to be a little runny and mushy. The reviewers who have given this one star based on the fact that it is mushy have not made a mistake-- that's how it is SUPPOSED to turn out if it is baked fudge. If you want baked fudge, this is a fantastic recipe. If you want candy fudge or brownies, this is not the recipe for you. That being said... I love my grandmother's baked fudge and this was just like it! It was so delicious that I ate about two full servings- after a full meal- and I usually can't even finish one adult dessert serving. Mmmmm. I was a little intimidated about the roasting pan and the water, but it was very easy and VERY VERY worth it! THANKS - 15 Apr 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a fantastic recipe! No, as others have stated, it is NOT fudge... more like a VERY fudgy brownie, but still great. I added a litlle extra cocoa (about 1 1/2 TBS) and sprinkled mini chocolate chips on top before baking. Excellent seved warm with a scoop of french vanilla ice cream! - 17 Jul 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
