Creamy rich fudge is Ohhhhhhh so good!


The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines two words that work splendedly to describe the making of fudge.  The first is TEMPERAMENTAL which Webster defines as "unpredictable in behavior or performance".  Fudge can also be described as FINICKY, i.e. "requiring much care, precision, or attentive effort".  While this may be true when it comes to making fudge correctly the end product makes the effort well worth it

I'm here to share my fudge recipes with you.  I've been cooking for more than 50 years and (unfortunately) after a long career my cooking days have slowed immensely thanks to cancer.  My Multiple Myeloma (blood cancer) and subsequent transplant has done a couple things to me.  It's caused me to be totally disabled and also taken away my employability...apparently.  After three years of trying to find a part-time remote job (due to my compromised immune system) I finally decided to take my passion of cooking to the web.  I can't take without giving something back and that's why I'm giving you my Best Fudge Recipes.  What I ask in return is for a donation to help with my Cancer & Transplant expenses.  The cancer has cost millions so far and the monthly treatment is $30k)  One is not required...my recipes are free, but a donation would be very much appreciated!

Because I have to compete with the 'big sites' it's almost impossible to be seen on the web.  Linking to my pages or mentioning me on your Social Media would the EXTREMELY helpful. Thank you!

You can make these recipes your own.  After becoming an expert with these recipes maybe you can start experimenting with flavors.  Just remember, fudge is finicky!  A good candy thermometer as well as a heavy cooking pot is very important.  The temperature of the fudge while cooking is extremely important.  Have you ever had fudge that's grainy?  In most cases that's caused by not paying attention to the cooking temperature.  You'll notice I also use "bakers" granulated white sugar in some of the recipes.  It is a fine sugar and melts better.  Cream of tartar will also help take care of some of the grainy texture you're trying to avoid.  BTW, unsalted REAL butter is a must and gently stir while cooking.  Do not splash the hot sugar mixture onto the inside walls of your cooking pot.
