Recipe: Coconut Fudge

By sooz 83 71

Not as hard to make as regular candy/fudge and not as sweet, but just as delicious. You might want to keep to the low end of the sugar measurement as coconut milk has a lot of sugar in it already.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 3/4 to 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup fine desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup butter

Directions:

Heat coconut milk, milk, and sugar in a pan and keep stirring until thickened. Add the coconut and the butter, Keep stirring until the fudge thickens further and leaves the sides of the pan to form a somewhat loose ball in the center. Pat down on a greased pan.

Question: Recipes for Chocolate Chunks and Pieces

By Anna 17 62

I just bought 12 10 oz. bags of dark chocolate chips and chunks. Why? Because they were 59 cents a bag. I could just sit and eat them by the handful, but I thought I should use some of them in baking.

I'm looking for a fudge recipe that uses marshmallow cream and other chocolate recipes.

Question: Recipe for Pumpkin Fudge

By Linda from Bloomington, IL 76 172

I have never made fudge using a candy thermometer, needing to reach soft ball stage, etc. We have never had a candy thermometer. My daughter hasn't either. She makes all kinds of fudge at holiday time. The only one she hasn't mastered is pumpkin fudge. She has yet to find a recipe for it that does not require a candy thermometer. I hope one of you great cooks have a recipe we can use. Thank you in advance.

Recipe: Cranberry Pecan Fudge

if you want to give it even more of an autumn taste, consider adding spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or cloves to the fudge.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (4 oz.) butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 cup pecan halves, toasted and coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup dried cranberries

Directions:

Prepare an 8x8 inch pan by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine the butter, both sugars, cream, and salt in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir until the sugars and butter dissolve.

Stir occasionally while the candy comes to a boil. Once boiling, stir constantly and cook it for five minutes. After five minutes, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla, then the sifted powdered sugar.

Once the vanilla and the powdered sugar are in, gently stir in the chopped pecans and the dried cranberries. Pour the fudge into the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer.

Allow the fudge to set at room temperature, for about 2 hours. Once set, lift it from the pan using the foil as handles. Use a sharp knife to cut it into small 1 inch squares to serve.

Cranberry Pecan Fudge can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature; for best taste and texture, consume within a week
