Semi Sweet or Milk Chocolate for fudge, is there a difference??
Post your fave recipes
Most fudge recipes call for Semi-Sweet morsels, but is there going to be something wrong with the fudge if I use Milk Chocolate morsels instead??  Does anybody know why the recipes call for Semi-

hee hee Nikki - thanks to you I now have lots of bags of new -to me - stuff.  I also bought a bag of just dried cranberries incase the bag of mixed fruit didn't look "right" to me ....
And the ginger is not at all overpowering .... it floats around with all ther other ingredients.  The pistachios also are "there" but not pushy.

What an amazing recipe .... it gets my red star inside a kitchen cabinet door and a copy goes in my notebook.

One question .... I poured mine into a buttered 8" square pan.  How do you handle yours?

Oh, so many delicious recipes and suggestions.  I will have to try them all.  Thank you.

As far as what type of chocolate to use for the fudge, I agree, experiment.

I line my pan with parchment paper.  I leave about 2 inches to hang over on 2 sides of the pan.  When the fudge is set I lift it out put it on a cutting board and take a HUGE knife and cut through the fudge.  If it will be a while before I am going to serve it I will cut the fudge into 4 big pieces and wrap each in at least 2 layers of plastic wrap then freeze.  This way the fudge does not dry out.  Remove it from the freezer at least 12 hours before serving, thaw in the refrigerator then cut the piece into smaller ones.

I really didn't notice much different. I guess I'm  really not a chocolate addict?
