If you’re looking for the most decadent, most delicious fudge recipe in the world, then look no further. My Mawmaw’s fudge is seriously the best.
This recipe for fudge has been in my family (on my mom’s side) for several generations at least. It is a Christmastime staple for family gatherings and family friends even request their own tin of fudge to enjoy. I’ll have to do some digging to find out where exactly this recipe came from. I’m not sure if it was my great-grandmother’s or if Mawmaw learned it from a friend.
Once you try this fudge, no other will do. I won’t touch anything with marshmallow fluff because the consistency is all wrong in my opinion.
If you are looking for an easy fudge recipe, this one is not it. This candy is time consuming. It requires your undivided attention from beginning to end. Oh, but the outcome? It’s so very worth it.
The one good thing I can say about this recipe is that there is no thermometer required like so many other candies. When the sugar is fully melted and no longer granulated, it’s done.
This fudge really does make a great gift for anyone in your life who has a sweet tooth. I plan on making several batches this season for friends and family.
