If fudge is overcooked, even a little, it will be dry and crumbly; it's always better to err on the side of undercooking. To ensure success, remove fudge from heat just before it reaches the soft-ball stage.

    I was almost scared off by the teaser that usually entices us to try a recipe, but when I read the suggestion to put ganache in the center, I knew I had to save it and try it anyway. we'll see!

    Yes, a candy thermometer is critical to get the right temp but if you haven't used it for a while, it should be tested for accuracy. To do this, put it in boiling water for 10 minutes and it should read 212F. If it doesn't, just add or subtract the number it is off to the desired temp. You can also drop a spoonful of the fudge into a bowl of ice water to check if you can form it into a soft ball.

    Very difficult. The fudge never set properly and one day later still liquidy. Don't know what it was supposed to look like in the saucepan on the heat, maybe it wasn't thick enough or cooked long enough. I was just worried about the don't overcook directions so I didn't keep it on the stove too long I guess. Won't try again, it's not a sure thing..disappointed!
