The fudge recipe that I'll be using (4 chip fudge) makes about 4 1/2 pounds of fudge and it'll cost about $8-$8.50 to do the whole thing. The fudge is basically semi-sweet chips, milk chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and butterscotch chips, as well as butter, sweetend condensed milk, marshmellow creme, and flavoring. Any more suggestions?
I sell pounds of fudge on a daily basis in my shop...this time of year it is not usual to go through 20lbs a day. I sell it for $9.50/lb. That is roughly 5 times my ingredient cost but is the "norm" around here.

i wholesale out my basic chocolate fudge with no nuts for $6 a pound. That is well above what it costs me to make, but my fudge contains no chocolate chips or marshmellows that would push the cost up considerably. It only costs about $1 a pound for me to make.
