    Ok, I’m making fudge today:) but what is vanilla paste? I’ll have to google it.

    • Yeah! You’ll love this fudge recipe Janelle. Vanilla paste is a more intense vanilla. You can use regular vanilla if you like just add a 1/4 teaspoon more.

  • That looks so easy and SO yummy! I’ve got to try it. I will substitute pecans for the walnuts as I have some on hand. I’ve never heard of vanilla paste. Can I just use vanilla extract?

    • I love pecasn in this recipe Doreen. the truth is I actually lve this recipe is lots of additions… LOL. Vanilla past is not hard to find and often looks like regular vanilla on the shelf. It’s a more intense vanilla. You can use regular vanilla if you like, just add a 1/4 teaspoon more. Enjoy. 🙂

    I shouldn’t have done it. Hubby shouldn’t and won’t eat it because of being diabetic but… I copied it. I love chocolate. I just couldn’t resist.

    • Hi Glynis, Hee, hee, yeah I know, it’s very hard to resist. Have fun with it and make a bunch for gifts. The ones you give this fudge to will love you for it. 🙂

  • I pigged out so much at Christmas, well November and December that I am still trying to undo the damage. Went on a cooking spree (it was fun). Bought some chocolates and then my neighbor came by with a big box also, it has been a damaging winter! So as much as I would love to try this, it will be on hold for quite awhile.

    • I get that Mary. I too have been working on undoing the damage from the holidays and pre holiday period. At this time of year, all my family and friends are looking forward to a little something form my kitchen, (well, actually allot of something) so this was an obvious choice. 🙂

  • Jeri Walker-Bickett

    I wonder how long this bit of chocolatety goodness would take to burn of on the ol’ treadmill? I can taste it now with a giant glass of ice cold milk 😉

    • That is a very good question. I guess it would all depend on how much you ate. :D. I know a little piece would be worth it… or maybe three… LOL.

  • Cheryl Therrien

    The problem with this recipe is the chocolate. Yes. My name is Cheryl and I am a chocoholic. Don’t let me near these please!

    • Oh yeah, I so get that Cheryl… LOL. I’ll have to make some for you when you visit again… BIG SMILE. 🙂

  • Jacqueline Gum

    Although I prefer fruit flavored sweets to chocolate, I admit I have a weakness for fudge…sans the nuts 🙂 This is so easy, I have to try it. Thanks Susan 🙂

    • Fudge is just one of those things that everyone seems to like. You know, you can add dried fruit pieces to this recipe. I love adding cherries. I think you’d like that too Jacqueline. 🙂

  • Adrienne

    You’re right Susan, it does look easy but Mom’s is similar to this one as well. I’m still going to keep this recipe and once my holiday weight is gone and I’m back on track I’ll have to think about making some of this. I have some brownies I have to try first though.

    Great job and so appreciate the share. Thanks!


    • Hi Adrienne, I’ll bet your Mom’s fudge is pretty darn awesome. I’m doing the same thing with my (Yuck) holiday weight. So when you do try this fudge recipe, stop back by and tell me how it went. 🙂

  • Jon Jefferson

    Chocolate isn’t on my must have list. But every now and then I can get into fudge. Not much though, it tends to be too rich for me.

    • It isn’t my husbands either Jon. But anything with salt and he is front and center… LOL. It can be a bit rich. That’s why it’s best to only have a small bit of it at a time… not. LOL.

    Oh yum! I can resist chocolate until the first bite. Just your image makes me want some though. I’d never heard of a marshmallow pan before.

    • Me too Beth. I’m a goner after the first bit. I love my Marshmallow pans. The sides fold done, they have measurement markings on them, all making it super easy to cut the right sizes and take out the fudge, or whatever I have in them. Question; do you like Marshmallows?

      • Beth – http://EncoreWomen.com

        I still like marshmallows roasted over a fire and as an ingredient but I am not tempted to each marshmallows by themselves. How about you?

        • I’m not much for the store bought except, like you, to roast or in recipes. However, homemade marshmallows are to die for. 🙂 I’m working on a post for them in the future, thus the marshmallow pans. 🙂

  • Pat Ruppel

    Definitely Yum Susan. I always had a hard time making fudge. Tell me, what is vanilla paste?

    Also, wanted to ask on a different note. Didn’t you put up a post on a meatloaf recipe? I couldn’t find it.

    • Hi Pat, Vanilla paste is a more intense vanilla flavor. You can use regular vanilla just add an additional 1/4. Regarding the Meatloaf recipe, I am revising the recipe a bit with new pictures. it will be posted again the next week or so. Would you like me to send it to you?

      • Pat Ruppel

        Okay – I get it with the vanilla. Never heard of that before. But, then again, what do I know. Can’t say I’m a cook expert. Do enough to get by.

        Yes, on the meatloaf recipe. I’d love that or at least “bop me in the head” (LOL) when you’re going to post it, if I don’t see it before hand. My recipe is missing something and I can’t quite put my finger on it. I’m looking forward to it. Thanks Susan

        • I just sent the Meatloaf recipe to you by email. Enjoy. 🙂

          • Pat Ruppel

            Got it. Thanks, Susan. I think I was missing the tomato flavor. I’ll be looking for this when you post it so I can pin it on Pinterest.

    I have never made fudge before but I sure do love it. It seems so simple I wonder why I have never tried to make it before. And totally cool about the marshmallow pan. Didn’t even know such thing existed.

    • Fudge as a rule, is pretty complicated, not in ingredients, but in technique. This recipe has both simple ingredients and is a super easy technique. Enjoy Krystle.

  • i could have eaten those fudge cakes right off the computer!

    • That is so cool! I was pretty happy with my fudge photo Jeannette. I think it really captured how good this fudge really is. 🙂
