Jell-o Chocolate Pudding Fudge

I've saved this recipe in my recipe box for a long time. It was one of the first recipes that I put in there. I thought it sounded interesting but I never made it before. I was craving some chocolate fudge the other day so I gave it a try. It was very easy to make. When eaten cold it is very similar to my See's fudge recipe. Unfortunately when it sat out for more than a few minutes it got gooey and had a slimy consistency (definitely not like my See's fudge). I'm glad I discovered that before I took it to a party where it would sit out. I probably wouldn't make this again unless I needed a quick fudge fix. It is worth it to spend the time and make the good stuff.
