i made the fantasy fudge in the microwave last night and it really worked so well         that i called my cleaning lady to come and move the m.w. for me      to a lower section of my cabinets  a desk area
so that i could sit down and do it
i made another batch this morning      using a bar stool to set the bowl on while i stirred and it was like a miracle               have i mentioned that in addition to my other problems i am also very short     5 ft  
that also contributes to my back aches
now i wish i could make cookies some other way, because i'm sad to say that with a wk left      i have not made any at all             i think it's depressing me

I think it is amazing you made fudge that way.  I can't ever make fudge come out to suit me.  It is more like a chocolate sauce.

i just used the same recipe for   fantasy fudge      that i always use from   kraft
it uses the marshmallow cream in the jars    they used to call it " never fail        no thermometer no soft ball
just bring to a full rolling ball and cook for 5 1/2 mins   then add choc and marshmallow cream i found a different copy in another book i've been looking thru      and it had the m.w. directions on it

you really can't mess it up         and since we had high humidity and rain yesterday and today      i guess the m.w. nullifies that

Hi Nellie.That's great that you made the fudge.I have the same problems in the wheelchair way TOO SHORT! Just do what you can and don't let it get you down.Start looking for pan cookie recipes and if I can help you find some let me know.I stay in my wheeelchair in the kitchen because my prosthetic leg gets caught under the sink and it's very frustrating.The wheelchair is a safer option (NO FALLING).I make very few cookies on my own and do so when I have a son here with me.Like I say 9x 13 baking is more for me.Cakes and pies and yeast dough are a better option for me also.Just smile get yourself in a good frame of mind and do what you can.

Nellie, I've been making this recipe in the microwave for about 10 years now, and it has never failed me. I make 2 batches, one with nuts and one without. After cooking the sugar for the recommended time, I drop a few drips in cold water and do the soft ball test, to make sure the sugar is cooked and the fudge doesn't have a sugary-gritty feel to it. I also stretch the recipe and put it in a 9 x 13 pan, instead of the 9 inch pan, to get more servings.

Thanks for sharing the recipe Nellie.  I just may have to try that and maybe my neck won't hurt so much.

There are lots of no-bake recipes right here on site.  I only checked the first page(of at least five) and there were six no-bake recipes.   Just type in "no-bake cookies" in the search box at the top.

I have been making fantasy fudge since 1966 and have always used
a 9 x 13 pan. Wow! That fudge must really be high in a 9 inch pan.

actually,  i use a pan that is 8X11  because i don't have a 9X9, and it is still a little over 1" high
if i used a 9X9      it would be too thick  i think

verlee, i have been making this same recipe on the stove-top       for many years     and i have never done any test or used a thermometer            and it has never failed me

actually we were having weather yesterday while i was making it            and during that last 2 1/2 min stretch  my lights blinked 3 times  and each time i had to reset the m.w.   and not even certain of the correct amt of time remaining      and it still turned out perfect!!

Good to hear, Nellie. I'm always overly cautious with my recipes - too much so, according to my sons!!! I think this recipe has also been called No Fail Fudge, for a reason!!
