With the holidays around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about which holiday fudge recipes you want to make.
In my younger years, I was not much of a fudge maker. I grew up watching my great grandmother and grandmother spend a day in the kitchen making a variety of different fudge flavors.
As I got older, I wanted to continue the tradition but for the life of me I couldn’t get the fudge to set up right. With years of practice, I finally figured out the secret to making fudge the right way.
What is the secret to good fudge?
Here are some tips and tricks I have learned throughout the years. They helped me a lot so hopefully they will help you too!
- Be sure it gets to the right temperature when you are cooking. This is a common mistake for anyone who has trouble getting their fudge to set.
- Use a candy thermometer. Unless you are an experienced fudge maker, get yourself a candy thermometer. You won’t regret it. This will help you get the right temp every time.
- Don’t over stir. As the fudge mixture heats up, it is important to stir it a lot so that the sugar dissolves. However, you don’t want to over stir. Also, stop stirring so much once it’s hit the correct temp.
