Fudge was thought to have been invented in the United States when a baker burnt a caramel recipe that he had been making. The result turned out to be fudge, and fudge has become increasingly popular ever since. The most classic form of this incredibly sweet, rich and decadent delight starts with butter and sugar and milk. The mixture of ingredients is brought to a different temperature, depending on whether you are making fudge or caramel or hard candy. The temperature differences are miniscule, making it easy to create hard candy when you wanted fudge, or vice versa. A truly great fudge has a firm bite to the palette, and then the combined ingredients of milk, butter and sugar, literally should melt away in your mouth. Fudge has a unique texture as well as a very distinct flavour, but very few commercial fudges achieve this extraordinary combination. The flavour of fudge is a quite a bit sweeter than chocolate and is thicker as well. This recipe is a simplified version of the much more complex and difficult original recipe. It is a great way for the kids to have a really sweet treat, and chocolate, at that. They will enjoy it, so once in a while, why not let them have it?
The best chocolate to use for a recipe like this is some chocolate chips but if you want to use the absolute best chocolate chips you can choose organic dark chocolate chips for a nice, rich chocolatey flavour. The nice thing about easy desserts like this fudge recipe is that they only require two ingredients and you can use a microwave, so this is especially good for kids who want to try out their own baking experiments. You could try out other fudge recipes too like a cookies and creme fudge or a french vanilla flavoured fudge. Some people even like pumpkin pie flavoured fudge or mint chocolate fudge. For a mint or orange flavoured fudge all you would have to do is add in some mint flavouring or peppermint extract and you would have a nice little bit of flavour. For the orange flavoured fudge you could shred some orange rind zest into the recipe which would taste yummy. Thank you to Danielle from Hugs and Cookies XOXO for this great easy dessert recipe.*
