    1 lb = 4 cups sifted . That is the equivlent given  but I'm not sure how many cups are in a box, it might be different. I, also, don't buy powdered sugar in a box so I'm not sure, but I would think that measurment would work for your fudge.

    You will find websites vary on this one:

     

    I like to use  a lower amount than some websites state  since making Icing  etc   one can always add more powdered sugar  if needed but by adding too much  initially you can get a dry product.

     I find I often end up using 3  cups give or take 1/4 cup or so.~A

    Aliea, that sounds more like what is in a box to me. I hope the poster sees this. I'll try and keep it bumped for her.
