Fudge Recipes

July 20, 2010

Fudge RecipesNot 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.




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.

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.

Melt some down and dip potato chips(half of each one, make em large) or pretzels. Have fun dipping half of animal crackers, nilla wafers or other plain cookies or crackers to give as gifts or just for a special snack.


Believe it or not, goldfish or scuba crackers and chocolate have an interesting taste.

The easiest fudge recipe in the world is to melt a package of chocolate chips (or chunks) with a can of sweetened CONDENSED milk(like Eagle brand but there are many cheaper brands - like at Walmart, etc.). I put it in a bowl in the microwave on defrost for a few minutes, stir well and put it back in the microwave till it is smooth and the chocolate is all melted. Add a few drops of vanilla if you like the taste and walnuts or other nuts. You can add peanut butter or instant coffee granules, miniature marshmallows, just about anything. Pour it in a pan and let it set. Presto! Fudge!! And it is delicious!!

Simple Fudge

1 can Pillsbury frosting of whatever flavor
6 oz chips of whatever flavor
1/2 to 1 cup finely chopped nuts - optional

The following order of making this fudge is important.


1. Line an 8 or 9" square pan with plastic wrap.
2. Melt chocolate chips 30 seconds at a time until melted.
3. Immediately stir in frosting (and nuts if desired).
4. Spread in pan. When set, cut into 1" squares.
Can be refrigerated to set more quickly.

Answer this Question

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.

You may not need a candy thermometer for any of those recipes. To determine soft ball stage you can drop a bit of your cooking fudge into a glass of water, if the ball is soft when lightly pressed it is at the soft ball stage, if the ball is firm and solid it is at the hard crack stage.


I hope this helps.
