  • “Made for Comfort Cafe – Winter Snow Queen Round 1/10.I enjoy making fudge from scratch, and this was simply a joy to make.So easy to stir and mix up, especially with my arthritis.Texture was silky smooth–not grainy.I didn’t find it overly sweet and neither did DH who commented that it wasn’t as sweet as other fudge I have made, and he liked it much better.Definitely a save-the-recipe-and-make-again fudge.Thanks for sharing, Strawberry Girl!”

  • “Awesome! Huge hit at a small group dinner.I took a cake, but did the fudge for one who is on gluten free diet.The fudge went over better than the cake.Also very easy.”
