Fudge

Chocolate Fudge.  There are so many different recipes online or in recipe books for fudge.  Some of them are super complicated.  Some require a candy thermometer.  This recipe is easy and does not require the use of any specialty equipment.  The children and I have been making it for years.  The younger ones can carefully stir (with supervision, of course) and the littlest ones can press the cooled fudge into the pan.

This is a super flexible recipe and over the next few weeks, I will be sharing several variations we have created.  I hope you find this Fudge Series enjoyable!  

We enjoy making fudge at Christmas time and in the past we have made up plates of fudge and other candy to take to the neighbors.  It is one of the children’s favorite things to do and it is always fun to pass out the plates and spend a few minutes visiting with our neighbors.

  1. Since fudge is my oldest sons’ favorite Christmas treat we make it every year! Ever since he was able to make it on his own it has been his contribution to the goodies. We have used the Carnation box kit that comes out each year. I’m SO excited to see your recipe as it is very similar to the box ingredients and directions. YAY!!!

  2. Oh… It’s not a fudge mix, it’s a boxed fudge kit! Has all the ingriendents. Chocolate chips, sugar mix, milk, marshmallows…. For a decent price!
    But I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a fudge mix out there somewhere! 🙂
