TIP OF THE DAY!
Store your can of sweetened condensed milk upside down in your pantry. Then when you open it right side up, all the sugar is at the top and comes out easily. The liquid behind it pushes the sugar right out.

I keep forgetting to do this. Great tip.

Thank you. Now I have another major problem, but have to hunt for the right place to post it. Off to the Desert forum first.

You are just too kind. My only excuse is it is late and I am bleary eyed from watching football.

My mom declared it was overcooked, but I still preferred it to too-soft goo that melts all over your fingers.

I'm new at this but I would think fat content and final cooking temp reached by the sugar slurry before you remove and cool, and of course the success of the final set. In short, I'm not sure, maybe an expert will chime in. In the meantime, here's a decent troubleshooting page:

Skaarup Fudge Making Lessons

Good luck!
