REVIEW: recipe rating
The recipe didn't give a final temp to cook the candy to, so mine ended up being a thick caramel instead of solid candy. I've never made fudge, so I don't know how thick it was supposed to be before pouring it into the pan. I'm sure it won't go to waste, but I'm disappointed that it didn't turn out right.
