    My family loved this so much, this is so easy and affordable. My family decided to do three batches and did peppermint, butterfinger and double chocolate.

    I followed the 2x recipe and it turned out beautifully. Super quick. This is probably the best fudge recipe I’ve ever tasted. It’s not grainy but it is rich. The salt does help cut down a little of the sweetness though. I’ll be making this again.

  3. I can not wait to make this. Last year I made easy fudge with butter and it did not get hard. The recipe called one stick of butter. It was suppose to be given as a gift but I could not give it

  4. Jan This is not the type of fudge that you can mail, it will melt and is not room stable. Go to hersheys.com and make their fudge recipe. That is old-fashioned fudge that can last at room temperature and can be melt without melting good luck

    If Emmy had not made this, I probably would not have tried it. Emmy, you’re the best! Merry Christmas!

    This fudge recipe is soo freakin good and soo easy. Sometimes I substitute other extracts in place of the vanilla. I’ve used Peppermint, Orange, & Raspberry Extracts.
