Forwarded to wife.... keeping fingers crossed

FYI: We made fudge on the 16th... sort of. First recipe turned to concrete..(over boiled the sugar) many words were exchanged including the F-bomb.. wet to local quick mart spent $20 on new ingredients.. Made second attempt. Under cooked the sugar turned out like pudding... Threw them both out.. Drank lots of Rum and Cokes... Stupid F...ing fudge recipe! Just buy it and drink!
