Fudge! (The Recipe)

Oh, you knew it was bound to happen.

Here is my go-to recipe for fudge.

 

FUDGE

2 cups Brown Sugar

1 cup Margarine (or real butter!)

6 ozs. Carnation (canned) Milk (Yes. Really. I know. I know. Just trust me.)

Boil for 10 minutes at Med. High Heat

Remove from heat and add:

2 Cups Icing Sugar

Vanilla (about a teaspoon – or to taste)

Beat for 2 minutes with elecric mixer.
________________________________________

For Chocolate* Fudge add 1/3 Cups of Cocoa

9″ x 13″ pan

 

 

All the usual rules apply. Score the fudge before it cools completely to make cutting the little squares easier.

Now go forth and fudge-ify!

 

Let me know how it turns out!

 

 

*We have made this into a Mint Chocolate as well, by swapping mint extract for the vanilla.

 

 

 

 

Fudge!

Oh, I’m not upset. No, no. Not at all.

I just cannot stop thinking about fudge.

You see I was supposed to be going to a Christmas Craft Show on the weekend, but due to circumstances beyond my control it didn’t happen.

That means, that besides all the cool unique crafts and handmade stuff that I missed out on, I also didn’t get to buy fudge from some of the amazing fudge making folks that tend to frequent the Christmas Craft Show circuit.

sigh

I will also be missing another local Christmas Craft Show next weekend.

siiiiiigggghhhh

It’s not like I need fudge. I mean, really. Does anyone need fudge? No. Of course not.

But!

Oh man!

Christmas Craft Show fudge is so good!

 

I could just make some fudge, I suppose.

I can never make it the way the super fudge makers make it, though.

It’s just not the same.

 

I have a decent recipe. A few, even.

There are plenty of recipes online.

There is no shortage of recipes, really.

There is merely a shortage of fudge.

 

I should just forget about it.

 

But I can’t.

Because FUDGE!

Help me to feel less kooky.

Is there a treat-y food that you have very rarely, but that when you do have it it has to be made a certain way? Or come from a certain place?

Do you like fudge?

(Do you have some? Because seriously, I have needs!)

Feel free to share a recipe or your thoughts on fudge in the comments.

 

I will share my best fudge recipe here with you all another day, but have you seen this*?

Have mercy!

 

 

*A very funny tweep – @evilpez4 – shared that and will be blamed in absentia for any and all fudge related weight gain this upcoming Holiday season.
