What is the secret to making fudge?

The key to making fudge is all about getting it to the right temperature. You need a candy thermometer to be able to check and monitor the temperature of the fudge as it’s cooking and this is the EXACT one that I use. Also, understand the texture that you’re going fan. You’re wanting it to be soft but not runny. Don’t overcook, or over stir anything and pay attention to the details on the recipe cards.

What do I do if my fudge doesn’t set?

This might happen but there are things that you can do to try to get it to set. Bring the fudge back to a boil at 212 degrees. Cook it again according to the recipe after that and see if that works. Make certain you follow the cooling instructions and everything on the recipe card perfectly to see if it sets up. I would highly recommend that you pay close attention to the temperatures as that is key to properly make fudge.

Can you freeze homemade fudge?

You can. That’s one of the best reasons to love fudge! If you make a big batch, you don’t have to eat it all at once – unless you want to! To know how to freeze fudge direction, use these easy-to-follow tips!
