5 smart points on the new program!
I followed the recipe word for word, but after 2 hours in the fridge my fudge was still soft, then I left it in the fridge overnight (from 10 pm to 8 am) and it was still soft. What could have I done wrong ?
It was not cooked to a high enough temperature. Most fudge recipes need a candy thermometer, and have to be cooked to the “Soft ball” stage.
i thought they were way to sweet, so I re-Made them with I cup of sugar, and 1 cup of evap. milk. They came out better. Also melted in the marshmallows before I put in the chocolate. I also used chocolate chips, I
They melt faster, less difficulty stirring
Can you make these without marshmallows? ??
Hmmmm…I haven’t tried it myself, but I don’t see why not. If you give it a try, post back and let us know how it goes!
4 large marshmallows =30 grams 2/3 cup mini marshmallows=30 grams
ok, I have made this many times and it is wonderful.. but can you tell me how you have marshmellow in the picture when it all melts?? did you put 1/2 in the maershmellows the rest of fudge? Thamks
These are amazing. I’m a huge fan of fudge and this is right up there with the best. It tastes incredibly fattening and it’s not. So choclatey one piece satisfied the chocolate craving!! The key is just one piece!!! That might be tough
i wonder if i can leave the marshmellows out?? any way to know what the points plus value would be if we didnt use the marshmellows?
This recipe is 3 Points Plus per serving. I looked it up on the WW website and they have the updated values. After I looked it up, I realized I’ve made this before and it’s great! I believe I stirred it though until all the marshmallows melted in, so although it’s “marshmallow” fudge, you don’t see the marshmallows in it! My husband is always asking me to make it – I guess I should comply!!
This fudge is amazing!
My kids and I make it a lot.
We are actually going to use it for teacher gifts in another 2 weeks (YEAH!!)
Thank you for posting this!
If you do update and put the new points plus plan PLEASE also leave the old points values, as I know A LOT of people still use that method (me included!)
is this points or pointplus value?
This recipe is still based on the old Points system. Hopefully I can get around to converting it soon!
Ok so this recipe is deadly haha! I made this and was too tempted to eat all of it. The kids ate it in one day, thankfully because I would of ate too much! Thanks for the chocolate fix, it is very yummy.
Ok, I'm totally confused. On May 5th, you say you used mini marshmallows, but on June 7th, you said you used the large ones. Would please clarify for me as I would like to make this this week end. Thanks
Sorry for the confusion….I've made this recipe quite a few times. The very first time I made it, I used the large, however, when I made it again after that, I found it easier to use the mini. I have a food scale, so I was able to weigh the marshmallows and determine the equivalent amt of minis. BUT….I never updated the blog post with that info. When I replied to comment on June 7th, I responded as to how I made the recipe the very first time. And when i responded on May 5, I was referring to the times I've made them with the minis. I know that all must sound really confusing, but I hope you can make some sense out of it. The bottom line is, you can use either mini or large. Just use a food scale to measure the equivalents.
Do u really use 1 2/3 cups or did you mean to say 2/3? I have been craving sweets lately and would love to try this!… Thanks!
The recipe posting is correct…it's 1 and 2/3 cup of sugar. Enjoy!!
I substituted the sugar for truvia, and it tasted wonderful! Doing this, you can go from having 1/36 of the fudge for 2 points, to having 1/20 of the fudge for 2 points.
Rebecca, how much Truvia did you use?
Yummy, I love your website
How many mini marshmallow did you put in
I didn't use the mini, I used the large. And I used 14 of the them. You can use the mini marshmallows if you want, I'm just not sure of the exact number you would need to use. When you are at the store, compare the serving size info on a bag of the large marshmallows and a bag of the mini, and that should help you figure out how many mini marshmallows = 1 large marshmallow. :)
Are we supposed to chop the marshmallows? I bought the big ones (like you use for roasting) and followed the directions, but without the heat the marshmallows stay huge.
You can chop the marshmallows, but I found it easiest to just use mini marshmallows. :) Works fabulously!
Do you think there is any good substitute for the evaporated milk?
I haven't experimented with this yet, but I'm sure there is. I'll let you know if I can find a lower calorie alternative to it!
hi, would just like to know what 1 2/3 cups of sugar is in grams and 2/3 cups of evaporated milk is in mls it be great if you could help, thanks
Can we use splenda instead of sugar to lower points or will it be the same. I have a friend who is diabetic and he would love this fudge but he can't cause of the sugar
Absolutely! Feel free to substitute the sugar for Splenda. It might not taste as good as the regular sugar, but it will def be lower in calories. Good luck and let us know how it turns out!
This is the 1st time I've ever made fudge and it tunred out great! the kids love it and it's good to have around when I need something sweet!
