My dad makes the best fudge and he sent me some for Christmas. I have his recipe. I’ve made it, but it’s hard work stirring the fudge and trying to time it so you get it out of the pan before it hardens.
Most people’s fudge creamy and sweet. Too sweet. Like diabetes sweet. My dad’s fudge has a firm texture and body (when I make it I like to barely overcook it so that it’s even harder). The flavor is more chocolate than sugar – we always use Ghirardeli®.
That stuff is like crack for me.
