  1. I made this last night & followed the directions to a tee. I took my sugar mix up to the softball stage at almost 240 degrees using a candy thermometer. However my fudge came out gritty. Why did this happen? Could this been a result of the way I combined those ingredients? I put all the sugar, butter, & cream in a pot all together before I turned the heat on. Still tastes really good, but it's just gritty, i'm assuming because all of the sugar didn't melt. Could it be that my thermometer is not accurate?

      This fudge is gritty!! Dont use this recipie. I wish i had read comments before. I have made this with perfect results before. I used a different recipie which called for evaporated milk. I lost the one i used so went with this one. Big mistake. So disapointed.
  2. As this recipe is presented, I'd recommend moving along and trying something else. The flavor is nice, but the texture is wrong. I gave it a couple of tries and the consistency is slightly gritty which takes away too much. I've had orange creamsicle fudge from the shops and it can be made without being gritty, so I'm going to move on and look for something new.
    • We have't had a problem with this fudge. There are couple of secrets when making fudge so that it doesn't turn gritty. One is be sure you are using a pure cane sugar like C&H. Another secret is to stir while it gets to the desired temp, then stop after you reach the desired temp. So the key to smooth yet firm fudge is to first bring the mixture to a high enough concentration and then let it cool off somewhat when removing from heat before starting to stir in the other ingredients. And once you do start to stir, stir fanatically and without stopping for the finest, creamiest texture. Hope this helps.

    You don't want to stir constantly, it will disturb the crystals in the sugar and cause them to stick to the side of the pan. You should use a brush with water to rinse crystals down or keep the lid on and leave the mixture alone for the most part and let the moisture from the lid to run down and keep the sides clean.
