I used chocolate fudge frosting that comes with the multi-colored candy sprinkles on top of the can but think I will try it with milk chocolate frosting next time. Included it in my fudge assortment I made for my co-workers. Made a very pretty fudge.
I don't have much of a "sweet tooth", but my husband likes this; says it tastes similar to a peanut butter cup. And you can't get much faster or easier for when you need an emergency gift from the kitchen! The food police will just have to look the other way once in a while.
I made these before noticing that the can of frosting contained a large amount of trans fats, which clog your arteries and never leave the body. I only gave these three stars because it tasted okay, but I'd never make it again because it's really bad for you, especially little children.
Agreed that isn't the best for you but it was good. Fudge icing was good. For peanut butter we used the plain (no flavor) icing. We only microwaved the icing. We also skipped the Pam and lined the pan with waxed paper. You can actually stack two batches in one pan by putting wax paper between layers.
Yummy, but it is very soft. Probably because I used homemade frosting. I wouldn't recommend the store bought just to make it thicker though, because of both the taste and the nutrition.
This is late-night eating disorder kind of "food". I wouln't recommend feeding it to your children.
Thank you so much for this recipe. I am making 15 cookie/candy baskets for Christmas gifts and this was the perfect addition to the baskets. Of course I tried some of it and it was delicious. SO easy to make!!
I want to use this recipe for my Holiday Gift baskets along with Mandabears' Fat Free Sugar Free Hot Chocolate Mix but wanted to try it first. My grandson Skyler and I made it together and he had a blast helping me (he licked the spoon!). These turned out really good! Beware though - they are delicious but REALLY sweet and I cut the pieces too big. The consistency is very soft like the stuff you get from the stores. I used Fudge frosting, but may try it with White Chocolate to have a variety! These will be in my gift baskets for sure.
Just one word... WOW!! I am amazed that something that normally takes a while to make comes together so quickly- this is my NEW fudge recipe!!
Easy, fast and delicious. Excellent recipe - thank you.
