Made my batch for the cook off . Used the fluff as suggested by someone else. It balanced out the sweetness. Not as sweet, but sweet enough. Also a much better consistency. Now to see if I win the cook off.

I made SEVERAL batches of this for Christmas and shared with everyone...I DID a few tweeks here & there as I did not like the consistency of the original finished product....I made ONE batch with half splenda and half sugar...then one with all splenda...and then I made one all splenda and I added about 4 ounces of Marshmallow Creme to the batch...it made it MUCH more 'fudgey and was what I was looking for in texture...did I screw up the kidney friendliness of it by adding the Marshmallow Creme? Please advise...I also spread this in an 11 by 18 sheet pan and got 36 pieces...perfect little 'one bites'... Dietitian [INVALID]: The marshmallow creme is low in sodium, potassium and phosphorus so your versions are still kidney-friendly.

This is wonderful! Really answers my chocolate craving being the chocoholic that I am. Thanks, DaVita

I made this for a patient holiday demo and it was very well received! Nice chocolate taste. Even the teammates who sampled it liked it and commented that if I didn't say anything they wouldn't know it wasn't a regular recipe. However, I doubled the recipe to make sure I had enough and it was very soft. Is it normally like that or should I have adjusted the ingredients somehow?

This fudge is wonderful.One suggestion I have is to melt the chocolate separately. That way it makes stirring much easier. If you have a few small lumps of chocolate when your finished, it's fine it adds a little texture.make some and enjoy. Before making this fudge, I didn't have chocolate in two years. this was a great treat. I put some of the pieces in the freezer wrapped in foil for later.

Great recipe for that chocolate fix!! It took longer to cool than expected so I had to wait until the next day to cut and serve. The end result was wonderful. I had a hard time convincing my dialysis "family" it was renal friendly!

Make this evenbetter for diabetics. Substitute 1 1/3 to 1 2/3 cups (by taste)Splenda for the sugar. Great!

I have made this twice and each time it is sticky and gooey, but it was delicious. Can some tell me why mine will not make the bars like the picture?

This was super easy to make and it tasted GREAT! I made this for my unit as a Christmas present and I was a big hit. Despite having only a little bit of chocolate it had a GREAT chocolate taste!

Love it. Hubby too! It quenches the desire for chocolate.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't this make 9 3X3 portions, not 18 ? Moderator response, Good catch--thanks! Actually the portion size should be 3 inches by 1-1/2 inches instead of 3 inches by 3 inches. For diabetics, adjust the portions to 1-1/2 by 1-1/2 inches. We did a food photo using this recipe and changed the portion at that time to make the servings larger(and yes, still kidney-friendly!), but got the portion wrong.

Great easy recipe. Make sure it's good and cold before you cut it or it can be runny.

EASY recipe for a great tasting chocolate treat! Make sure to use nondairy creamer for the best texture (not milk or Rice Dream). Also, this fudge freezes well.
