Every year about this time I start thinking about making homemade candy and confections and how very homemade candy treats are. I have been an award winning Chef for over thirty years now but Fudge was one of the first things I was able to make and every year I try to come up with a more delicious fudge. And this year is no exception. This year I think I have come up with a fudge recipe that will have your family and friends begging you for more and anyone can follow this recipe and produce one of the most delicious fudges they will ever taste.
Most people wanting to make homemade candies and confections shy away from fudge thinking it is too hard to make but that isn’t the case at all. Now it may have been a lot harder at one time to make a delicious creamy chocolate fudge but I have come up with a recipe now that anyone can easily follow and make some of the most delicious maple fudge they will ever eat. Just follow the steps below and I promise you you’re in for a treat.
Let me talk to you for just a bit here on how to make your fudge turn out perfect and I’m also going to show you how to make clean up easy and your fudge will turn out perfect every time. To start with your going to need three things. First of all we are going to take a 13″ X 9″ baking pan and we are going to line it with aluminum foil and allow some of the aluminum foil to extend up out of the baking pan on either side so we can pick the aluminum foil up easily and take the fudge out of the pan easily when it is done. You want to take a stick of real butter ( Not Margarine ) and butter the aluminum foil very well every where that your candy mixture is going to touch it.
Easy Fudge Recipe
The recipe I’m going to share with you will make perfect fudge every time you make it and it is one of the easiest fudge recipes you’ll ever make. Just follow the directions carefully and you’ll have perfect fudge every time you make it.
For Your Easy Fudge Recipe You Will Need
1. One Large Package Miniature White Marshmallows.
2. One Twelve Ounce Package Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips.
3. One Twelve Ounce Package Butterscotch Chips.
4. One Cup Smooth Or Crunchy Peanut Butter.
5. Two Cups Butter., ( Again Real Butter Not Margarine )
You will need a large non stick sauce pan and to make things easier later when its time to clean up spray the inside of your sauce pan well with vegetable cooking spray.
Now you want to start out by placing your sauce pan on the burner on medium heat and you want to add your butter to the sauce pan and get it started melting. You will need a wooden cooks spoon because you will be needing to stir your fudge almost constantly while it is cooking. When you have the butter almost boiling add in all your other ingredients and once you have everything added in let your sauce pan come to a boil and let the ingredients cook at a boil for five minutes while you stir constantly with the wooden spoon.
Be sure to time it and let it cook at a boil for a full five minutes and then pour it out into your prepared pan. Let the fudge cool to room temperature and then place the pan of fudge into the refrigerator for a minimum of two hours. You can then cut the fudge out into about 36 equal pieces and begin enjoying some of the most delicious fudges you will ever taste.
You can store your finished product in a tightly covered container for up to two weeks or you can keep it in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to six weeks. But once anyone tastes it I warn you it will all be gone rather quickly.
