Fudge Help

Why is fudge so difficult to make. I am thinking of trying to make some and everyone says i shouldn't because it will most likely come out bad. Is this true? Does anyone have any secrets to making it? Also has anyone made it with splenda? I may try and make it depending on the tips or input i get from you guys

My Mom used to make "Never Fail Fudge". Here is the recipe:

Never-Fail-Fudge

2 1/2 c. sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 stick butter or margarine
1 5.33 oz. can evaporated milk (3/4 c.)
1 Jar (7 1/2oz) Marshmallow Fluff
3/4 tsp. vanilla
1 12-oz. package semisweet-chocolate pieces
1 /2 c. chopped walnuts

Grease a 9-inch square baking pan; set aside. In large saucepan combine first 5 ingredients. Stir over low heat until blended. Heat to a full-rolling boil being careful not to mistake escaping air bubbles for boiling. Boil slowly, stirring constantly, 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and chocolate until chocolate is melted. Add nuts. Turn into greased pan and cool. Makes 2 1/2 pounds.

Here's a recipe for Fudge made with Splenda. I have not tried it yet, so I can't tell you how it is.

SPLENDA FUDGE RECIPE
(sugar free)

2 pkg (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
2 squares (1 oz each) unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
1/2 cup Splenda sweetener
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Line an 8-inch square baking pan with foil.

In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, melted chocolate, Splenda, and vanilla until smooth.

Stir in pecans. Pour into prepared pan. Cover & refrigerate overnight.

Cut into 16 squares. Serve chilled.
