800 grams of slab chocolate should be equal to 4 cups of chocolate chips.

Thanks so much for the feedback, Katie! I am glad you both liked it.

Jell-O used to make a cooked pistachio but I haven't seen it for years. Yes, that would be really good!

Gobo, good to see you posting again. It has been awhile!

BTW, I wasn't trying to slam your fudge version, just letting them know the original recipe didn't call for chips or slab if they didn't want to go that way. You should try mine, it is really good. And I will give yours a go too...when I can eat sugar again (long story).

Of course not. As she mentioned not having chocolate chips - it was a good thing to remind her that she doesn't even need them. It is your thread after all. :)

It's good to see you too, LPBeier. Perhaps I will try this fudge recipe of yours.

candy, chocolate, easy, fudge, recipe

LP's Mom's Easy Fudge I pulled out this recipe for Kades and thought I would post it in case anyone else is interested in a TNT no fail fudge recipe. This is a fudge I grew up on. It is fast, easy and stays firm. I have tried both butterscotch and vanilla (not instant) puddings. I have left the raisins and nuts out, used all nuts, changed it up with candied cherries, cranberries, whatever you want. [B]Easy Fudge[/B] 1 package Jell-O Chocolate pudding mix (not instant) 1/4 cup margarine 1/4 cup milk 1 1/2 cups icing sugar 1/4 cup chopped nuts 1/4 cup raisins Combine pudding, margarine and milk. Bring to a boil and boil 1 minute stirring constantly. Remove from heat, stir in sugar, blending well. Add nuts and raisins and pour into a greased 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 (loaf) pan. Cool and when set cut into squares. 3 stars 1 reviews
