Today I attempted to make fudge for the first time. I was hoping to quickly make up a batch of vanilla fudge and top it was chocolate ahead of Christmas for some cheap and easy presents for friends and family. I found this recipe which described fudge making as ‘easy’, ‘simple’ etc etc.
It’s not. Especially when you don’t own a sugar thermometer. How many of you own one of these really?
I followed the instructions, stirred the mixture for ages and waited for it to set. It didn’t. Instead it turned into a gooey messy – it tastes like it could be fudge, but the consistency is all wrong – and I’ve wasted a whole 350g of sugar.
The lesson there kids is don’t even attempt to make fudge unless you have a sugar thermometer. Otherwise it will go wrong, making it a very sad waste of all of that sugar!
