I used this as an ice cream topping as suggested for a bday party with a bunch of 9 year olds. They all loved it! Of course, then we had 9 year olds on a sugar high!

The fudge tasted really good, but it was very sticky and had a taffy-like texture, almost like a soft tootsie roll.

It was very easy though, and tastes great with ice cream and strawberries! (: Thanks for posting!

We made this recipe together on a rainy day when we had nothing to do. It was very easy to make and we are kids. It tastes great!

The fudge was very tasty, though as Mary commented on I did get lumps of sugar throughout even though I did sift the powder sugar. I would recommend lining a mini cupcake pan with foil and then pour the fudge in it before you put it in the fridge to get perfect serving size bites.

Great recipe! Just one little thing to check before you start making this delicious fudge: make sure your powdered sugar is not lumpy-Run it through a sifter first, otherwise your fudge will have little white lumps running through it like mine did. Otherwise it's great! Thanks for posting!!

I'm a terrible cook but this recipe was extremely easy, quick and tasty. The fudge was rich and was ready in just about 60 minutes. The taste was a little too cocoa-y for my liking so I might recommend slightly less cocoa. Good recipe, though!
