Easy Fudge Recipe

This fudge recipe is quite easy to follow. To test for the softball stage after having boiled for about 25 minutes, drop some of the mixture into cold water to see if a soft ball forms. Stirring as per the instruction is crucial and you should not allow crystals to remain on the sides of the pot. The fudge must be cold before cutting.
