This was less like fudge and more like the sweetest, sickliest ganache ever. - 18 Jul 2012
I heated this on the hob rather than in the microwave, and it was fantastic. Easy to make, a great one to do with the kids. Well worth giving a go! - 19 Sep 2015
I normally try hard to adhere to a recipe as it's written when trying it the first time. In this case however, I kept some of the reviews and my prior experience making this type of simple fudge in mind before proceeding, as I was concerned about wasting ingredients. The typical ratio of chips to milk with this type of fudge is 2.5 cups chips to 14 ounces of milk. That's what I have always used, and it's always worked out for me. I just could not see this setting up as written and many of the reviews confirmed that, therefore I used 2.5 cups chips. The end result was a firm but creamy textured fudge. I also chose dried tart cherries instead of candied, for more of a sweet/tart contrast and next time I would add a touch more almond extract. - 27 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
