It isn’t hard at all to make homemade fudge. It takes a little time to make homemade fudge. It is very important to make homemade fudge with a candy thermometer. You need to make sure this fudge recipe reaches the soft boil stage. Everyone loves to make a good old-fashioned fudge recipe. This will remind you of the fudge that your grandmother used to make when you were a small child.

Whenever making candy, I highly recommend a candy thermometer. It will help to ensure that you cook the candy long enough. It seems like candy takes forever to get it to the proper temperature, or I am just impatient. It could be both. So dig in the bag of your utensil drawer and grand that under used candy thermometer and make some homemade old-fashioned fudge just like see’s today.

    I grew up eating See’s candies, this will be a hit in my house.

      I am so glad there isn’t a See’s closer to my house. I would be there too much. I love their dark chocolate covered caramels.

  • Sheryl@Lady Behind The Curtain

    I love, love fudge! This looks so yummy!

    The best fudge recipe I have found. It’s the only one that turned out and everyone loved eating the fudge. Very easy and fast to make.

    • Cwill1950

      This was the wrong recipe I used making fudge. This recipe is awful!!!!
      After trying to make the fudge four times each time the fudge never set up. I followed the recipe to the T and I even thought I did something wrong the time before.
      There is items missing from the recipe. It makes good ice cream topping (Very rich)

      The best recipe is Mrs Field’s Fudge recipe. Very easy and truns out each time.

    This recipe is great! Creamy rich and set up beautifully. I use this recipe in my kid’s cooking classes and it comes out great everytime. You must boil the ingredients for six minutes (do so over low hear–just hot enough to get a boil) for it to work perfectly.

    I made this for christmas I did exactly what the recipe said. Its not right at all it came out carmel and soft didnt harden!

    • Dana Anderson

      You didn’t cook the hot mixture long enough. If you have a candy thermometer, make sure it goes to at least the soft ball stage.
