We had a problem with a microwave fudge recipe a few years ago. Very simple -- just stick a mixture of a can of condensed milk and a bag of chocolate chips into the microwave a melt them down, with a touch of vanilla, mixing from time to time. Then chill.

It turned out VERY soft and sticky.

We later found out the "the bag" of chocolate chips was supposed to be an 18 ounce bag, but we had the new standard 12 ounce bag.

When we used 18 ounces of chocolate chips, they turned out beautifully.

Now, if they downsize the 14 ounce can of condensed milk down to 10 ounces, mixing with a 12 ounce bag of chocolate chips would work. However, that would require a change in the microwave timing -- an issue I've had with microwave bags of popcorn getting downsized.
