The Cook's Comments
Simplicity
Like the other fudge recipe on here, I'd have to give this a 1 on the simplicity scale. It was incredibly simple.

Complications and Suggestions
I can't say I had any complications perse. The foil stuck slightly so that it peeled off in small strips at times, but that is about it. I do have suggestions, however. First off, if you rather save on the dishes, do what I do and use one dish and rinse it thoroughly in between layers. I even used the same spoon. I would also suggest placing the firm fudge on a cutting board before cutting it into pieces. It was much easier to slice through.

Taste
This seemed to be a treat around my work. It is definitely a softer fudge and may melt in your mouth a bit so it may not be to your liking if you are a firm fudge lover. It does have a richness to it, but that it easily remedied with a cold glass of milk. :)
