  1. I made this today, and followed the recipe EXACTLY!!  It tastes absolutely amazing, but it’s a little gritty….. I am an accomplished fudge maker with over 35 years with no fails!  What in the world did I do wrong???

    1. Oh that’s bizarre. The only thing I can think of is not boiling the mixture long enough, however, it wouldn’t set up properly. I wish I had an answer for you!

  2. I live in Australia what is marshmallow cream, what can we use instead never heard of this ingredient cheers Sue

  3. Hi there, quick question.  I live in the UK and we don’t have marshmallow cream.  Is it the same as fluff which we can get here?   This rep looks lovely and I really want to hav a go at it.  Thanks.

  4. Boozy treats for the win! This fudge looks incredible! Can’t wait to give this a try 🙂

  5. I think the same way, I want to make boozy desserts and then Jordan’s all “Mom can I have one or does it have wiiiiiiine in it?” LOL I love irish cream and this fudge is perfect!

  10. Fudge is my guilty pleasure. I don’t have it very often but when I do, I devour it. This kind looks amazing and so festive!

  11. You know how I solved the “I can’t put booze in stuff” problem?
