Homemade Fudge Tastes Sugary (Grainy)?

My fudge seemed fine through all the steps, but ended up tasting quite sugary. It had boiled to 238 degrees F so it doesn't seem possible that the sugar didn't dissolve. I used the recipe that uses semisweet chocolate squares, condensed milk, marshmallow in a jar, and sugar. It has always turned out great, like old fashioned fudge. Any ideas on the sugariness?

There is no recipe that calls for sugar, marshmallow fluff, and condensed milk. You were looking for evaporated milk. You effectively doubled the sugar in the recipe, because condensed milk has a ton of sugar in it, while evaporated milk has none. Try again. Common enough mistake.

Make sure you are using using pure cane sugar.

I use Michigan beet sugar in my fudge and get great results! Also, it isn't necessary to butter sides of pan.... just brush plain water on the sides before the mixture begins to boil.
