OT- Fudge Recipes
There comes a time in every woman's life that she just wants a nice, thick hunk of fudge to eat while watching 'Little Princess'.

Unfortunately for me, I have misplaced my cookbook yet again (there weren't any fudge recipes in it anyway, I think), and I can't buy fudge do to my dairy intolerance. But, thanks to the miracle of science and far too many artificial chemicals, soy milks cooks like regular milk.

So, I put the question out to you awesome people: what's the best fudge recipe you know? From mint, to white, to macademia praline, I'm sure y'all have some great little note cards of candies past stored away just waiting to be shown up on the internet!

I use the recipe on the Marshmallow Fluff jar. It is really NO FAIL! I make it every Christmas and give it for gifts. I swear by it! It calls for Evaporated Milk, but I can totally see where Soy Milk would work. I'm just not sure what's in the Fluff. You'd have to check it out. Good luck!

Another good place to check is allrecipes.com. I love to read the reviews that people have left for different recipes. I found a really good apple pie and a carrot cake recipe. That site is fabulous!

ITA!! I LOVE Allrecipes! I always go there when I'm looking for a specific recipe. It's much faster than going through ALL my cookbooks! I suggest reading the comments before you make anything though, usually there are some really good suggestions from people who have tried the recipe already.

I concur. This recipe is simply divine. My mom used to make it all the time when we were kids (such a long long long time ago ) It really is the best.

I have to go with the one on the jar of marshmallow creme. It always works and is delicious!!

also, allrecipes.com is the best site for recipes! I can't even cook anymore without reading the reviews!! I have quite a few staples now from that site.

Is there a soy option for sweetened condensed milk? If so, my grandmother makes Four Chip Fudge at Christmas, and it's yummy! (I'm not sure if that's the actual recipe, but it looks right.)

Oh, and I second the Velveeta-containing fudge recipe! It really doesn't taste a bit like processed cheese.
