Hi Sue Do you have any suggestions on how to make a smooth fudge? I have tried several times and my fudge never turns out. I dont know if I am not cooking it long enough or what. It just never seems to set up right. I would luv to try making some of these especially the pumpkin. Thanks for sharing these recipes :)Sherri

Hello...
I just by accident ran into your blog. I am so amazed with your fudge recipes. Now...I have never heard of using Velveeta Cheese in a fudge recipe ! I have to ask this...do you taste the cheese & where did such recipes orginate from, again using Velveeta Cheese. They look delicious. Any other advice on making these recipes would be appreciated, such as can they be cut in half not to make as much fudge ?

The grum drop fudge looks interesting. I will have to try it. Where in the world did you find the receipe or did you make it up.
The velveta fudge looks interesting too. I will have to try this for my mother and grandmother that have chewing challenges. My mother is always wanting some "Good" fudge. Sounds like I have finally found it for her. Thanks and I love your blog. Keep it coming, your great.
