Fudge Came Out Gritty

Can you fix peanut butter fudge? Even though it came to a soft ball stage, it came out gritty. The sugar didn't seem to dissolve.

I always put one or 2 tablespoons of white Karo Syrup in my candy, and I have not had gritty candy since.

I've been reading a number of posts about their fudge not hardening.
This is an easy recipe and I've had great results every time.

2 cups (12 OZ.) semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 1/4 cups (14-oz. can) sweetened condensed milk
(do not confuse with evaporated milk)
1 cup chopped nuts
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine morsels and sweetened condensed milk in heavy saucepan. Warm over lowest possible heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat; stir in nuts and vanilla. Spread evenly into foiled-lined 8 or 9-inch square pan. Chill for 2 hours or until firm. Lift from pan; remove foil, cut into squares.


Microwave Oven - Use defrost setting and melt chocolate morsels and sweetened condensed milk. Stir until smooth; stir in nuts and vanilla. For different flavored fudge use white chocolate, peanut butter or butterscotch flavored morsels.

(Makes about 2 pounds of fudge)

I found a bunch of fudge making info at this link including about the crystallizing (gritty) problem:

In my fudge post I forgot to include the clear karo in the ingredients to boil. Sorry about that. ~Janette~
