What is fudge?

Fudge is an American confectionery, a type of candy, probably created at the end of the 1800s. It is a type of sugar candy made with milk, usually condensed milk, chocolate, butter, and flavors.

The recipes differ from each other based on what ingredients people add to the basic recipe. Usually, there are dried fruits, caramel, candies, nuts, salt, chocolate chips or other flavors go into the mixture of condensed milk and melted chocolate.

The original fudge was very labor-intensive and made with sugar, milk, and butter cooked to a soft-ball stage (240F/116C). While cooling, the mixture was beaten to a smooth, creamy consistency.

Chocolate American fudge recipes simplified over the years and became a holiday staple, while people learned how to make this dessert at home.

Fudge recipes are easy to make

That’s right, fudge recipes are some of the easiest recipes to put together. I wonder why we do not make fudge more often, as it would be a great dessert not only in the winter during the holidays, when we already consume massive amounts of sugar, but also in the summer.

When it is very warm outside, nobody wants to get in the kitchen and start baking. Fudge is one dessert that does not need baking, so why not make this super easy and delicious chocolate treat? Served directly from the fridge, it could be a really wonderful dessert.

There are so many recipes of fudge out there. If you learn how to make a basic fudge recipe, you can add any flavors you want. From coffee to nuts, candied fruits, or marshmallows, the sky is the limit.

You can also ship fudge, as it has a really long shelf life.

This collection of recipes will offer you plenty ideas for the holidays. If you have a party, you could make a few different recipes of fudge and serve them on a platter, for your guests.

There is always a good opportunity to celebrate with chocolate, so I hope you really enjoy this collection.
