3 Minute Fudge
Of course, the question about this recipe is, does it take three minutes to make this fudge or is it three minutes to eat this 3 minute fudge? I have a feeling it might be both! I grew up on fudge my mother made using dark brown sugar, cream and butter. She prided herself on being able to make a creamy, smooth treat that had a firm bite in the mouth that melted right away on the tongue. It took real skill to balance the butter and sugar combination against the cream in order that the fudge firmed up hard, but then immediately melted in your mouth when you bit in. It was divine. And we would watch, captivated, as she melted and tasted, stirred and poured. For us, this was the nirvana of special treats, and one we rarely got, so a certain reverence always attended her preparations.
This recipe is somewhat simpler, as so many are today. It uses chocolate chips for the chocolate, which is great, and does not try to attain any firmness in the bite. Instead, this is a smooth and creamy chocolate fudge right from the get go. It’s the type of fudge that will melt in your hands if you hold it there too long (so be sure not to).
Fudge is hands down a food that causes chills of delight to go down your spine when you bite in to it. Don’t ever become accustomed to commercial varieties; they are far below what you can make at home. That’s partly because you can control the ingredients. No flour or margarine or other oil should ever be part of your recipe. Those ingredients were never intended to be a part of fudge. Fudge is the purest expression of fat and sugar and cream that you could find. Unless maybe it’s salted caramel fudge. But that’s another story.
