I just made this fudge recipe for the first time ever. It is the best fudge I have ever made or tasted. I usually make the Fantasy Fudge with the Nestle Toll House Morsels but this year I noticed the recipe was change using a new chocolate ingredient. I have always made the Fantasy Fudge until now. I sure have been missing so much not having the "Famous Fudge" recipe. I am just happy I have it now. This fudge is truly excellent! I cooked mine in a T-fal pan for five minutes. Perfect! Thanks so much for your spectacular recipes!

I made this for our church sale this past weekend. I made two batches. One batch was as the recipe called for and the second using the peanutty chocolate option. The peanutty chocolate option which I completed first came out amazing! I wanted to eat the entire pan but held back as it was for the sale :) The second batch I made was as per the recipe and I don't know what I did wrong but it came out very dry and broke apart very easily. It tasted fine, but it was not fit for a sale. I will try again as this recipe is very delicious!
