FUDGE

Fudge is a type of candy, usually extremely rich and flavored with cocoa. It is made by mixing sugar, butter, and milk and heating it to the soft-ball stage at 240°F or 115°C, and then beating the mixture while it cools so that it acquires a smooth, creamy consistency.

Easy recipies
  • 2 3/4 cups sugar
  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons butter, plus more for greasing pan
  • 1 cup half-and-half 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped, roasted nuts, optional


Grease an 8 by 8-inch pan with butter. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the sugar, chocolate, 1 1/2 tablespoons of the butter, half-and-half, and corn syrup. Over medium heat, stir with a wooden spoon until sugar is dissolved and chocolate is melted. Increase heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and boil for 3 minutes. Remove the cover and attach a candy thermometer to the pot. Cook until the thermometer reads 234 degrees F. Remove from the heat and add the remaining butter. Do not stir. Let the mixture cool for 10 minutes or until it drops to 130 degrees F. Add vanilla and nuts, if desired, and mix until well-blended and the shiny texture becomes matte. Pour into the prepared pan. Let sit in cool dry area until firm. Cut into 1-inch pieces and store in an airtight container for up to a week.



INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
    PREPARATION:
    Combine butter, milk, sugar, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil; cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in marshmallows, chocolate, vanilla, and nuts. Beat for about 1 minute, or until marshmallows melt and mixture is thoroughly combined.

              Who am I?

              Hi.
              My name is Anna.
              I am a HUGE lover of Chocolate.
              I eat it, I research it, and I live by it.

              By day I am a dietician, ironically as it may seem.
              By night, I am obsessed with the various aspects related to chocolate.

              A Day Without Chocolate is like a day without Sunshine.
