Thanks for the recipe! I love Paula and your recipes. However, it still suprises me that people want you guys to do the work for their food choices. I think that if your diabetic it is the diabetic's responsibilty to know what is edible for their own diet. Find what works for your diet and substitue what you can and where you can. Personal responsibility is vital to your health. I have watched my own family members struggling with this disease think by taking a pill they can eat what they want or if it says fat free-it's o.k. to eat as much as they want. I love comfort food as much as any southerner, but I think we all know it's not healthy on a daily basis. People asking for calorie counts on fudge is like drinking a case of diet pepsi thinking your not going to gain a pound. Even silent calories can be killers.

Glad to find your place. I helped my husband in his fatal fight with cancer in 2006, only to find out that I had stage three and was working full time,going thru chemo, and taking care of him. Saddly he paassed in 2006. Then in July of this year I had to have my main heart valve replaced.Boy oh boy I,m only 66. Then my sinises raised so much cain I had to have nose and sinise surgery. Anybody who gets a new nose for fun is nuts. I,m very glad to see your receipes. Because I,m suppose to be eating healthy. But I,m built for comofort not speed. And being on limited income it is very hard to find good food up here that you can afford. And if you know of a single man who just wants to say Hi. So be it. Your new friend, chris dull P.S Give your mama a hug.

WHAT ABOUR CARBOHYDRATES.?????? type 1 and type 2 DIABETICS HAVE TO CUT CARBOHYDRATES. HOW COME PAULA DEAN SEEMS TO THINK THAT CUTTING FAT AND CALORIES AND NOT CUTTING CARBS IS OK?? SHE IS SENDING THE WRONG MESSAGE OUT THERE. ALL TYPE 2'S ARE NOW WALKING AROUND THINKING THEY CAN EAT AS MANY CARBS AS THEY WANT. NOT TRUE. I have been a type 1 for 58 years and thanks to carb counting I still have a VERY healthy life. IF TYPE 2's CUT OUT THE FAT AND CARBS, AND LOOSE WEIGHT THEY CAN GET RID OF THE DISEASE. Type 1's CANNOT. PAULA DEAN - YOU ARE TOTALLY WRONG AND SENDING THE WRONG MESSAGE TO ALL DIABETES. LOOSE ABOUT 100 POUNDS THEN YOU ARE QUALIFIED TO SPEAK. Sheila

When I got your e-letter this morning I was so excited to see a recipe for fudge! But, I was somewhat disappointed that nutritonal information was not included. While fat is a factor in the fight against Type II diabetes, the sugar/CARB content is much more important and much more critical. Please think about including the nutritional contents and it would be nice to see recipes using stevia and other safe non-sugar sweeteners. Thanks!

Have you ever made the fudge without the coffee? I don't like the taste of coffee and even when there is just a little bit I can taste it.

I love all your and your Moms' good recipes and shows. I learned recently that I am now a diabetic, so no sweets, which I love! Do you have any good desserts that are sugar free, AND not sweetened with artifical sweetners? Keep on cookin'. Coleen.

This looks fabulous and while it is lighter....I'd like to see the nutritional facts on it. Is there a way you can start publishing these facts? That's one of my peeves w/recipes being posted. The facts are rarely listed and for those of us that are using WW and counting points...that's a big no-no. We/I, like to know 'points' BEFORE I eat them! smile
