My daughter has made some fudge that isn't setting. What can she add to thicken it? I thought of cornstarch, but we don't know how much or if it will change the flavor. I hope someone can help us out.

I have thrown out so many batches of gritty frosting until I did one simple step - put a lid on your pot for the slow boiling time. I even leave the lid on when I take it off the stove to cool ... worked perfectly - no grainy frosting! Hope this works for you.
For the first time I made Jack Daniels fudge yesterday. It has been in the fridge for 24 hours and not set.
When the mixture was in the pan it got to the boiling point and was hot enough, so I put marshmallows in.
Can you give any advice on what I can do with this mixture? It had hardened on top, but is gooey underneath.

At Christmas I make Bourbon Balls and I'll tell you,the alcohol in it is the problem. It will practically melt the Chocolate when you're dipping them. I'm sure the problem has been solved by now but next time, whip up a dark chocolate cake mix and frost it with the fudge - similar to a Milky Way Cake.

I would think that storing it in the refrigerator in a covered vessel would work better at getting it to set up.
My fudge did not get hard, I did exactly what the recipe called for. Any ideas what I can do to make it hard, or what can I do with it, so I do not have to throw it out.
I made candy cane fudge, and it isn't setting! I substituted condensed milk for sweetened condensed milk, but I used an online recipe and added sugar for the condensed milk. Should I reheat it? Or add powdered sugar to it?

I am assuming that the milk substitution was not part of the recipe you followed. It sounds like you substituted evaporated milk for the condensed milk. If that is correct, you won't be able to get the fudge to set up no matter what you do. Evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk are in no way the same product.
You said to heat it more. Can I do this in the microwave since I have already pour it into a glass container?

You need to cook your fudge longer so the sugar will 'set.'
