My husband can barely boil water, but the last couple of years, at Christmas time, he wants to get in on the goody-making. I told him he wouldn't be able to mess this up. We generally make six or seven batches of this fudge with many variations such as peanut butter chips for peanut butter fudge, mint chips, raspberry chocolate chips - if they make it a chip flavor, it can be a fudge flavor. White chips don't work all that great - very hard to melt properly. WARNING: When making the microwave recipe (it is the best!) be sure to boil your milk/sugar mixture as long as the recipe calls for - don't rush it or you'll get grainy fudge!
