Tuesday’s Cupful: Fudge

A super sweet treat

We like sampling fudge at some of the local sweets shops. Fudge is a dense candy confection that’s usually comprised of four main ingredients -- chocolate, butter, milk, and a lot of sugar. Chocolate may be the most popular flavor but other varieties, such as peanut butter and butterscotch, are also available. Fudge is a heavier variant of fondant. Commercial makers of fudge can keep consumers wanting more by adding chopped nuts, crushed candy canes, or mini marshmallows. We made regular peanut butter fudge yummier with chopped dates but you can substitute them with dark chocolate bits crushed cashew nuts.
