Russian Fudge

I make one batch, perfect, I make a second lot and it turns out like toffee, what could I be doing wrong when as far as I am concerned both were identical batches?

This happens a lot regardless what you are baking, cooking, etc.

Perhaps when you do something for the first time then you are actually more pedantic, carefully following recipe/instructions and so on but when you've done it once then the next time is done with a bit more ease hence this alone can alter things just a tad.

More so with Russian Fudge, First time when I did this was absolutely perfect, everyone raved on it then the next time was great but times after that started to alter even though I felt I'm doing everything spot on as like the first batch.

Another factor is using different brands, this will alter things too, also the cookware, timing, temperatures, and so on.

I just moved on taking notes what has happened and search for a more reliable recipe.

Are you using a candy thermometer.
If not, make the investment
