Must have messed up somewhere.  I left it in the fridge to make sure it got good and hard.  When I
took it out this morning to cut, it's gooey, not hard at all. Suppose to go to neighbors as a gift.  Now what?
Is there any way to salvage what I have.  Can't phathom going to the grocery store today!

Sorry that it didn't come out. I have made it many times and if all ingredients were fresh and none left out, the only thing maybe is that it did not get hot enough or either cook long enough.
Is there anything else you could make with what is in your pantry or can you get to the store and try again? Good luck.

If you go to a candy store and buy fresh made fudge, it isn't hard. It is creamy and gooey. Sounds like you made the "professonal" type.

It might be too late to do this for the neighbors, but you could put in a jar & call it fudge sauce; spoon some out & zap in microwave to heat a little to pour over ice cream, pound cake, angel food cake etc. You can even add some chopped nuts or crushed candy cane.

As long as it tastes good, I would go with the "sauce" idea.  After all, the stores sell that to go over ice cream.  I prefer my fudge to be gooey :)
