The Easiest Homemade Fudge Guide (3 Ways)

There really isn't much to say about fudge other than it's chocolate, chewy, and delicious. However, for this holiday season let's make it three different ways but also elevate it a bit and fancier - say "chocolatier" version if you will.

    🤓 FYI for the vegan crew, if you really don’t care for the flavor of coconut use refined coconut oil instead😉

    in the uk we don't really have chocolate in fudge, to my mind vanilla fudge is the default.

    You could always run a metal detector over your ruined fudge. Also I like Alton's peanut butter fudge. F@#k the vegans!

    ,..... Wait,.... standard Fudge doesn't contain chocolate. We Brits invented it, we know. Doesn't. What you're making is Chocolate Fudge which is already an embellishment. Standard Fudge is vanilla infused, if it's infused at all.

    Just because you slap a "vegan" label on it doesn't make it healthy. Coconut oil is the white sugar of fats, just another highly processed oil.

    Easiest fudge is to melt peanut butter and chocolate spread together, then let it in the fridge for an hour or two and there you go

    I keep messing up the praline somehow. The sugar mixture won't change colour, and it ends up crystallising on the top after a while. Any hints? Is there a temperature I need to hit?

    lemme tell you about this fudge. I had a few cans of condensed milk that needed to be used up so I figured I'd give it a go and MY GOD. Best fudge ever. It took like 5 minutes to put together and was absolute perfection when it came out. If fudge isn't your thing, whip this up anyway, heat up some milk and drop a few cubes in for the best hot 2 minute hot chocolate you'll ever make.

    If you do the fudge with this method it will be ruined. He isn’t using this method to get the finished product. He’s jsut full of shit, I know because I make candied fudge all the time with no issues and I have a induction cooktop that I set to 100 and used everything like he said and both times the batches were ruined. So clearly he doesn’t know what he is talking about otherwise every batch wouldn’t be ruined.. I would know because again I make fudge all the time.

    I make candied fudge all the time. This recipe I tried to make and it jsut solidified. I used low medium heat and did it like he said. Idk. Maybe it’s what they call scorched. But I tried to throw a little in a pan to see if maybe I didn’t melt it all the way and it jsut cooked it didn’t melt. Idk what I did wrong

    Ay, Papa!!!! COCONUT OIL SERIOUSLY BAD!!! Absolutely loaded with saturated fat!!!! Way back in the late 70s, coconut oil is one of the ingredients removed from foods because of saturated fat/cholesterol. Coconut oil, palm oil, and I forget what else. Now the plant eaters are bringing it back. DONT FALL FOR IT!!!!!

    I don't give a shit what vegans say, there is no reason, dietary or moral, to not eat honey. Beekeeping is good for the bees, good for the environment and good for people. There are literally no downsides to beekeeping and honey production. None.

    The reason people ask for healthy stuff is because sometimes the 'real' stuff is just not in our budget, calorie range, or dietary options. Rather than shutting it out completely, it's great to have the chance to have something that at least gives us a chance to enjoy it. Glad he gave the option for the vegan fudge, just wish he didn't mock it so much, even if it did have just about his favorite flavors.
