Tbug.......I made 2 of these the other day......the first one like above, except with cherry flavored dried cranberries instead of the raisins.....kidlets don't like raisins. The other one I used the white chocolate morsels, pistachios and dried cranberries. I also added a touch of peppermint flavoring to this one....just a hint of mint. THEN, I cut each ring in half, switched to other half, used some melted chocolate as glue and made a 2 tone ring, then decorated. One will go to each daughter's house....Christmas Eve/Christmas Day.
This is very good for those who love a creamy fudge.......Now I am the opposite of you.......I prefer a sugary/grainy fudge....the old fashioned kind I grew up and out on!!!
I suspect that texture came from overcooking.......but I like it that way.
