please note on anything coated in chocolate, that the cold may cause a "bloom" where the chocolate gets a whitish cloudy appearence. this does NOT reflect on taste, or mean its bad, its just a reaction to the cold and not as pretty.
as for fudge..i make both, but find my customers prefer what you call cheater fudge...its smoother and more velvety. I've taught candy making classes and always do both and most prefer the ease and texture of the marshmallow fluff fudge.
I have also found that making peanut brittle in the microwave takes about 10 minutes. uses the same exact ingredients, tastes exactly the same, same high quality, and no mess, no fuss, my bakery is so busy i'm all for anything that gives great quality in less time!! I dont cut corners on ingredients or prep...but if it is exactly the same or better you bet i use it!!
