Brown sugar fudge

I’m always looking for an excuse to make something sweet, and luckily this time of year, there is always a great excuse! I will share with you some of the chocolates I have been making, but tonight I am more excited about this new recipe I found for Brown Sugar Fudge. Here is the link for the original recipe…the author of the blog calls is Brown Sugar Candy. Doesn’t matter what you call it… It is delicious!

You need butter, brown sugar, evaporated milk, vanilla extract, and icing sugar. Come on, how can that not be delicious… Right?

  Start by melting 3/4 of a cup of butter, and mix in 3 cups of brown sugar, and a can of evaporated milk.  

  Stir until everything has been dissolved.And, bring to a boil.  The above picture shows what it looks like before boiling, and the picture below shows what it looks like after simmering for 5 minutes. I stirred for most of the time it was boiling. Then, take it off the heat and add a teaspoon of vanilla, and stir it in, then add a pound of icing sugar, and mix well.  

I tried to mix it by hand, but it was all lumpy, so I ended up using my hand mixer.      

Then I poured it into a 9×13 pan. I lined the pan with parchment paper, and let the parchment hang over the edges so it would come out easier.  

I left it in the fridge for a few hours, then took it out and sliced it into small squares.  

You can see a little in the picture that is was a little moist at first. So what I did was put it back in the fridge uncovered for a day, it dried out, and became a little crusty on the outside, just like fudge should be! If you have a sweet tooth, or sweet cravings, this recipe is definitely for you! It is sweet, creamy, and tastes just like brown sugar! I have made a few different types of fudge over the years, and this might even be my favourite!

Chocolate fudge

Standard

I tried making this fudge a couple weeks ago and it was really good, and I had most of the ingredients in the fridge…
You need 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 2 cups of chocolate, one cup of cream, 1/2 cup of butter, and 3/4 cup of corn syrup.

Mix together the white sugar, brown sugar, butter, cream and corn syrup in saucepan

Bring to a boil for five to ten minutes, until it reaches the soft ball stage. This means that if you add a drop into cold water, it hardens to a hard ball, not crunchy. Or, if you prefer to measure using a candy thermometer, heat it to about 260 degrees

Then, most important step is to wait five minutes, before adding the chocolate chips. The reason why you have to wait is because the chocolate will heat up too fast and overcook, which will change the texture of the fudge. Waiting ensures it will keep its creamy smooth texture…exactly what makes it taste so good. I have to admit, I didn’t wait quite long enough… I find it very difficult to be patient when fudge is involved, you understand, right?

Once you have mixed the chocolate, and it has melted, pour it into a pan and spread out evenly. This recipe was enough for a 9×9 pan.

Put it in the fridge to let it cool… Once again…hard to wait..but worth it!!
