Help me! I'm a failure with fudge! - Page 2

post #16 of 22
has anyone got a recipe for a pumpkin fudge?? I have looked and looked and can't find one. I tried using white chocolate and the sweetened cond. milk w/ pureed pumpkin and it never set up (i wound up mixing it into some vanilla ice cream and frezing..........really good...the fudge firmed up, but was like a chewy ribbon of pumpkiny goodness )

But I'd really really love to figure out a way to make some pumpkin fudge marbled with cheesecake fudge! I've had it at Sam's Club before (free sample) so I know it can be done, I just need to do it for less than $20.00/lb. which is what they were charging!

I've been looking for a regular fudge recipe without the "marshmellow cream" and haven't had any luck. Anyone want to share?

Once the sugar is stirred into the milk and chocolate mixture, I don't stir it again until it is cool. I have more people wanting fudge than I have time or energy to make. My daughter-in-law claims the fudge every year at Christmas, my son and grandchildren get other goodies the fudge is hers.



So using the marshmallow is not REAL fudge; interesting. They taste the same to me. I'm still using sugar, vanilla, milk, salt, have to bring it a certain temp, etc. It's just a different recipe. And BTW, the pan has a little to do w/ it too.

I'm one of those who don't like marshmallow creme based fudge. I don't find it creamy enough and I think it makes the fudge too sweet (lol! since when was fudge never too sweet!).

There's a book called "Who Wants Candy by Jane Sharrock and she has wonderful recipes for all kinds of fudge and other homemade candy. It's worth checking out from your library or buying.

I'm not a big fudge maker because if I do make fudge, I will demolish a whole tray by myself, but my 13 year old boy has been having great success with recipes from that book. Everything he's made so far has turned out SUPER YUMMY!

I'm another one that prefers fudge without the marshmallow creme. Here's a recipe that always works for me:

1 Cup sugar
1 pkg chocolate pudding mix (NOT instant)
1/2 cup evaporated milk (not sweetened condensed)
1 Tbl butter

Mix in saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and add up to 1 cup chopped nuts, if desired. Beat until thickened. Pour into buttered pan

for pralines, use butterscotch pudding instead of chocolate
