I love a challenge! Especially, when the challenge is sweet and chocolaty! Growing up, I remember the perks of scraping the boiler and eating the warm, creamy chocolate confection just after it was poured. Making fudge the old fashioned way by boiling the mixture and beating to perfection is not easy to make. In fact, fudge is quite finicky and you must develop discipline and patience to make it this way. But if you can perfect your technique, your friends and loved-ones will love you more. In fact, you will likely make many more friends!
How I Learned to Make Fudge
Like my other recipes, my dad taught me how to make fudge. But this recipe was not handed to us within the family. This recipe was handed down by Hersheys® when they used to print the recipe on the side of each box of powdered cocoa. This is the recipe I’ve used all my life, and there are several really good variations available. But there is something in every fudge recipe that you won’t find on the pages of most recipes: the technique.

It’s Christmas season, and I’m so busy cooking that I don’t have much time to write. But check back!
