    This is a beautiful recipe for traditional fudge. If you think fudge should have marshmallow, then the real thing will blow you out of the water.... Not disappoint. There is a ditch on either side of the fudge road: if you don't get it hot enough when boiling the candy mixture, it will not set up; if you get it too hot, it will turn into a crumbly disaster. Like so many things people have given up, real fudge takes practice and patience. Those who take the time are rewarded! I had to vindicate this recipe. It is my absolute favorite fudge to make. Proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. p.s. Stir by hand. Only a pro can mix this in a KitchenAid without goofing it up. It will build your arms up, too.

    Try this recipe today. But really can't set at all. Does any one know what went wrong? I just follow the steps and measurement step by step. Can anyone give me some tips for it? Thanks very much

    If you want nuts just add them in after using the mixer. But do it quicly as fudge can get stiff quicky when it is ready. We never used a mixer just good old fashion elbow grease. Usually we pour it into 2 bowls and beat with a wooden spoon. One plain for those who do not like nuts and the other bowl with pecans for those who do. You can usually find a willing stirrer as the fudge is great to lick out of the bowl after poured!

    Unfortunately this recipe is missing a key ingredient---marshmallow! I tried it twice and both times it didn't set up, and turned out more like fudgy-frosting than actual fudge. Beware, this is not a good recipe!!

    Maria, I think what probably happened is that you had some sugar crystals on the side of the pan. That's why you need to do the wet brush thing. I've not done it and had things turn out fine but it's always taking a chance then.
