I have opinions about Fudge... I want the real deal. Not a mix, not a jar of marshmallow cream mixed with chocolate resulting in a weak confection that my gramma would sob to learn has been concocted.
Candy making is such an adventure and a science. Making fudge you are dissolving the sugars crystals and cooking them to a certain temperature and then intentionally returning them to crystallized form. If this process is done incorrectly, it will result in a grainy fudge. Yet, when done correctly.... the outcome is morsels of heaven in your mouth. It is a delightful journey!
This fudge recipe base was built from my grandmother Birdie's. Don't worry - there are more instructions and details than what hers included. On hers the ingredients were listed and then the instructions stated 'cook and turn'. It makes me laugh every time - candy making is a bit more technical than that.
