So it's Monday again!

I so don't want to go to work! LOL
I did manage to get some stuff done. I went & paid some bills, mailed out a baby quilt that was way over due in mailing, bad me!! I had boxed it up & stuck it in the closet & totally forgot about it!! At least she'll get it before she's grown!
We made
Gumdrop Fudge
1-1/2 pounds white candy coating, coarsely chopped
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups chopped gumdrops
Line a 9-in. square pan with foil; set aside. In a large saucepan, heat the candy coating, milk and salt over low heat until coating is melted. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla and gumdrops.
Spread into prepared pan. Cover and refrigerate until firm. Using foil, remove fudge from the pan; cut into 1-in. squares. Store at room temperature. Yield: about 3 pounds.

But the print is so small I miss read the directions. So I'm missing 1/2lbs of white coating. Can I reheat it & add it , or will it make a total mess??
Right now it's sticky & if I leave it out to cut it just goes blahhhh all over itself!

*********Edited to add***********
So I put the whole pan in a warm 200 degree oven. Melted the other 1/2lb in the microwave. Stirred it all together & wa la I have it done right! No melted gumdrops either!

Gotta try that fudge. (Not that I have a sweet tooth or anything) I love your table topper. Maybe it wouldn't be too big for my table??

That table topper is beautiful!! Sorry your fudge had a mishap. I would try melting the chocolate and stirring in what I had already made, but I am by no means an expert.
