Biscoff Cookie Marshmallow and Pecan Fudge – an amazing cross-section between SUPER EASY and OMG DELICIOUS- you will be saying -What the Fudge?

Where did Fudge get its start?

There are many early origin stories, but the earliest written evidence of fudge was in a letter written by Emelyn Bettersby Hartidge, a college student, in 1886.  The letter talks about fudge being sold for 40cents per pound- a hefty price in the day!  Emelyn got a copy of the recipe and started selling it herself, and by the end of the 1880’s fudge shops started appearing everywhere.

It didn’t take long for fudge to make it to Christmas tables, an extravagance for a special time of year – and the tradition just stuck.

As with many recipes, candy makers invented different versions, and fudge kept getting easier to make.  Earlier innovations included substitutions like corn syrup and sweetened condensed milk.  Today, delicious fudge can be made simply and fast- no tempering – no double boing.  You can achieve Chocolatey decadence in less than 15 minutes.

  • Milk Chocolate Chips
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk

FAQ’s for Microwave fudge

Why didn’t my microwave fudge set?

If your fudge turned out sticky, and didn’t set as it cooled, it may be that your fudge never reached a high enough temperature.  Take no short cuts on time in the microwave.  You can always use a thermometer to check.  The fudge should reach a temperature of between 234 and 239 degrees Fahrenheit.

How should I store my fudge?

Fudge is best stored in an airtight container at room temperature.  It will last 2-3 weeks

Is it ok to store my homemade fudge in the refrigerator?

No, the refrigerator will pull out the moisture and can leave you with crumbles.  Of course, you should use your refrigerator for cooling and setting the fudge, but do not store it there.

Can I freeze Fudge?

Most fudge recipes freeze well.  Fudge recipes with a denser texture tend to hold up better than fudge with a lighter texture.  Wax paper or parchment between the pieces can help them from sticking together.  Use an air tight container or freezer bag.
