Thanks TexasJan for your information. Not only am I a diabetic but so aren't my aunt and uncles. My aunt uses Sweet 'n Low so I will give her this info. I use Splenda, guess I will also change to the healthy sweeteners. :)

I am new here and just found this recipe. Read the comments but seems everyone wanted to try it, yet I don't see anything saying they did make it. I love Chocolate Fudge and I want to try it but not if it didn't turn out for the others.
So, would all that saw this and tried it please let me know how it turned out.

Gelatin should be in the same aisle with Jell-o and marshmallows.
Liquid sweetener can be artificial or there is liquid stevia.

This sounds great am gonna try it very soon will let you know how it taste to me.

Mine always turns out a little softer than I'd like but it tastes a lot like the way I remember fudge 'way back when I could actually eat real fudge. I still need to restrain myself from 'pigging out'.

Triker, Does hubby HAVE to know what you made is for PWDs? Stuff made for PWDs is healthy — healthier than what is commercially made. You can just call it "health food" LoL!

I love all the ideas and recipes that this website has but it is hard for me to try them when I'm the only one who will eat them since my husband is not a diabetic.

I just noticed your question. The 12.1 grams of carb is calculated for 1/8 of the recipe.

I read somewhere that some agave nectars are adulterated with corn syrup. Cheaper than using the agave for some companies. I'd rather drink the tequilla! LoL!

I just went to diabetes classes at Presbyterian Hospital last month. I have been a diabetic for 10 years and I now feel more empowered than I ever have after having these 9 hours of classes. It was given by a dietian and a nurse. They told us that the best sweetner for diabetics is agave liquid, and it can be found at Whole Foods or other healtlh food stores. The second best is Truvia (all natural from the stevia plant), third is Splenda, 4th is Equal, and the 5th and worst is Sweet N Low. Sweet N Low is sacchrin (synthetiic compound), Equal is aspartame (synthetiic compound), Splenta is sucralose (chemically treated sugar).

Agave is a sweet extract from agave, a succulent plant which also gives us teguila.

It is also called Agave nectar and Agave syrup.

The only sweetener I ever used with this is liquid Sweet N Low, simply because I had it on hand. I'm sure many other liquid sweeteners will work but I haven't experimented.
