PAULA DEEN’S 5 MINUTE FUDGE

PAULA DEEN’S 5 MINUTE FUDGE

  • Yummy! I needed something quick and sweet for a family potluck and this was it. I let my husband, who “doesn’t really like chocolate” lick the spoon as a taste test, and he wouldn’t give the spoon back until it was licked clean! I am so happy with this fudge recipe! I can’t wait to make it for Christmas!
  • I made two batches of this recipe with my Dutch oven and wisk to stir. The 1st batch I made as is written. It turned out smooth rich tasting fudge. The 2nd batch I made as is written but adding 2 tablespoons brown sugar along with the white,1/4 cup creamy peanut butter,1/2 chopped walnuts and added a few extra marshmallows and whipped it with my wisk till it was smooth and creamy. Maybe took a full minute to mix after the cooking milk,sugar,butter part. This made some of the BEST peanut butter chocolate frosting for my cake. Thanks! Yum.
  • I don’t understand why some people were finding it so difficult to stir. I thought it was very easy, and very quick! It took me about 7 or 8 minutes to stir everything…..from the sugar mixture until the end when I dumped in the nuts. Then I poured it into an 8×8 glass dish, put in the fridge and that was it. Absolute total time, from start to finish…maybe 10 or 12 minutes. And the end result was fantastic. This one’s a keeper.
  • This is the absolute best fudge ever! It is foolproof if you follow the directions exactly.
    It is not one bit gritty like some reviewers have suggested. You need only make sure you cook it for the full five minutes after it comes to a boil. Delicious! No other recipe for me! This is the best!
  • Decided to try this recipe to add to my Christmas cookie collection that I will be giving out this weekend. This was my first time trying homemade fudge since watching my mother make it a long time ago. It came out fantastic! Loved it. The only thing I will be doing different is doubling the recipe so that it comes out thicker in the 8X8 pan, as another reviewer commented. Thanks!
  • OMG I love this! I’ve tried making fudge in the past and it ALWAYS turned out too grainy. I followed the directions to a T (with a few minor changes). When the sugar/milk started to boil I lowered the temp just a little and set my kitchen timer to 5 minutes and stirred the mixture with a whisk. When the timer went off I added the chocolate chips a few at a time and stirred until they were melted. The chocolate chips melted within a minute or two with constant stirring. I used a half of a bag of mini marshmallows and stirred them in while they were still over the heat. As the marshmallows were pretty stale, it took a bit of effort to stir them in, but they were completely melted within a minute or two also. Instead of lining the pan with paper, I just brushed it lightly with butter and everything came out easily. My husband LOVES this!
  • After reading the reviews on this, I hesitated a bit but figured that I had nothing to lose so I whipped these up! I don’t know what others did wrong because it DID take me about 5 minutes from start to finish. Everything blended and mixed easily with a spatula too. Maybe the key is to make sure that all ingredients are hot when you mix them to insure that it melts and blends. This will be one that I will make for many occassions!
