Having read all the posts answering this question, I decided to just put my unset mixture back in the pan and heat to 237 degrees. I was sure my mistake had been to remove it from the heat too early first time round. Anyway, after reaching that temperature and then beating it to a thick consistancy, back it went into the tin and after another 30 mins it set and was fantastic. This recipe was basically sugar, evaporated milk, water and butter and a bit of vanilla extract.

I added ordinary milk to stop it sticking to the pan then boiled it stirred it for ages then stirred it off the heat and it set lovely.

Ok I put it back in the pot boiled again. Still not setting. Would more marshmallows help?

For last resort, which became a favorite! My last fudge didnt set up. I did put it back in the pan to reheat, then became concerned it would burn. I added Uncooked oatmeal until it was thick, then Spooned it out on wax/parchment paper.

Its a hit! Absolutely loved by all who try it! Ppl who reserve their eating of sweets to only excellent sugary treats came back for a second and third helping. (I used the dirt doctors fudge recipe).

Do you think reheating the fudge will help. There is a lot of fudge I put together and costly too.

Hi I made some fudge which didn't set. So I Googled for help. I ended up scrapping the fudge back into the pot with a cup of water. Heated it back up again. Done the drop of fudge into ice water then I poured fudge into the dish again to set.this time I stirred it until the shine on the fudge dulled which I didn't do the 1st time around as recipe didn't say to.

The fudge set almost instantly as I stirred it. Hope this helps some of you. It tasted lovely

Hi I made the fudge to and when I put it in the frigerator it set up but when I took it out and put it on the counter overnight so we can eat it it started to soften up like a brownie batter and put it back in the refrigerator hoping it's going to set up but is there anything else I can do

I tried to cook it till the gloss was gone as soon as I tried to taste it, it turned to rock, it was definitely overcooked.

I can tell you from years of experience making fudge for gifts, find a better recipe.

Eagle Brand has an excellent one which never fails and doesn't need a candy thermometer (if you can't find it, message me and I'll send it to you. In the meantime, you have an excellent ice-cream topping which might also be fun as a fruit dip.

I know what I did wrong later that evening I called my mom and told her about my fudge not setting at all !! She asked me if I had used Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk? Guess what? I ran through that same recipe she gave me and sure enough, I had chosen carnation evaporated milk instead of the right canned milk! Thanks for your answer Nordie you are awesome! The recipe is simple with right stuff lol!

Step 1
Put 2 bags of choc chips (kind of chocolate is optional, I hear dark is also yummy too) and 1 full 14oz Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk (not opt, LOL) in a microwave safe bowl.

Step 2
Cook in the microwave until melted, take out and check if ready!

Step 3
Stir really well with a spoon.

Step 4
Cover a square pan with a piece of wax paper and mold to the pan. Pour and wait for it to set.

Step 5
When it's set, take a large dinner plate on top and flip the pan over onto the plate and pull off wax paper.

Step 6
Cut and serve.

It's really fantastic fudge when prepared with the Right Ingredients. God Bless Yall!

Can you give me the eagle fudge recipe that you can make without a thermometer? That would be great.

I made fudge years ago for gifts. I got the recipe from the back of the confectioners sugar box.

This recipe I got from Allreceipes. I'm so disappointed and I made 3 batches, so money also wasted. What can I do, anything???

There are two considerations put it to the heat until it dries up, or contact a chemist and ask them.
Fudge is sensitive to heat, and becomes lost if any error, known or unknown occur. If you can manage to find an item that is a compliment, you might add it until it becomes thick? The chances of it working into something else, might offer you an opportunity to enter a new desert sweet?
When I think maple syrup, I think fudge as the end result of over cooking. To make maple syrup sticks, you place ice in a tray, then you pour the melted fluid over the ice, take wood stick and roll the quickly cooled result onto the stick. The result is difficult to store, bt is entertaining.
