Want to know more about fudge?
- Fudge is a type of Western confectionery which is usually very sweet, and extremely rich. It is made by mixing sugar, butter, and milk and heating it to the soft-ball stage at 240 °F, and then beating the mixture while it cools so that it acquires a smooth, creamy consistency. There are endless variations of fudge flavors and additions.
- Some of the most popular fudge flavors include chocolate, peanut butter, maple, caramel, peppermint, and marshmallow.
- Before refrigeration, homemakers would make fudge as a way of storing extra sugar, molasses, and maple syrup.
