  • Best. Fudge. Ever. Chocolate Fudge
    4 oz (110 g) unsweetened chocolate, chopped
    1 cup (250 ml) heavy cream
    2 cups (500 ml) sugar
    A pinch of salt
    2 Tbs (30 ml) butter at room temperature
    1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla extract
    1/2-1 cup (125-250 ml) chopped nuts (optional)
    Combine the chocolate and cream in a saucepan over low heat. Stir constantly until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is blended and smooth. Add the sugar and salt and bring to a boil,
    stirring constantly, still over low heat. Stop stirring and cook until the mixture reaches 236F (113C) on a candy thermometer. Remove from the heat immediately and add the butter but do
    not stir. Cool until the mixture is lukewarm, add the vanilla, and beat vigorously with a wooden spoon until the mixture is smooth and no longer shiny. Add the nuts if desired and spread into a
    greased 8-inch (20 cm) square pan. Cut into squares when it has hardened, and store forto 2 weeks

  • Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
    Yield: 60 Pieces

    1 c Semisweet chocolate chips
    1/4 c Light brown sugar
    2 T plant or animal milk
    1/2 c Oatmeal
    1/3 c Peanut butter, room temp.

    Combine chocolate, sugar and milk in a steaming bowl & place in a larger pot with some water in it. Cook over low heat until the chocolate has been smoothly melted. Stir in the oatmeal. Drop the peanut butter in by rounded teaspoonfuls. Swirl it around until it is evenly distributed but not blended in. Line a small, shallow baking dish with wax paper. Pat the chocolate mixture in with the help of a cake spatula. Refrigerate for several hours until chilled & firmly set. Cut into 1" squares.

  • Probably not great for a fund raiser because the ingredients are expensive, but my family LOVES Bailey's Irish Creme Fudge. If you google it you will find the recipe.
