Delicious Egg Nog Fudge Recipe

I tend to make fudge quite a bit, and I think I’ve figured out why. Once the end of the year rolls around, I like to give my oven a break.

Since I only have to use the microwave as my “major” appliance in this fudge dish, it’s a simple way to fill the house with a yummy scent but none of the heat from the stove. (that also means I can use the stove for other recipes as needed, too!)

My boy’s LOVE fudge. This is why I have so many fudge recipes that I share with all of you. I love being able to walk through the kitchen and grab a piece of fudge – which means I often walk through the kitchen!

Can you overcook fudge?

Fudge is a candy made by boiling sugar and milk, then cooling and stirring until it becomes thick and creamy. The final product is typically a soft, smooth, and flavorful treat.

However, it is possible to overcook fudge. If the sugar and milk are boiled for too long, the mixture can become grainy and tough.

Additionally, if the fudge is not cooled properly, it can be sticky and difficult to work with. In general, it is best to err on the side of caution when making fudge, as it is very easy to overcook this type of candy.

By following a recipe carefully and paying close attention to the cooking process, you can avoid overcooking your fudge and ensure that your finished product is delicious and enjoyable.

How do I make leftover fudge last?

Fudge is a delicious confectionary treat that can be made with various flavors and ingredients. Unfortunately, fudge can also be quite expensive and often goes to waste when people do not finish the entire batch. However, a few simple tips can help you make your leftover fudge last longer.

First, store the fudge in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. This will help to prevent the fudge from drying out or becoming moldy.

Second, try cutting the fudge into smaller pieces to enjoy it over a longer period.

Finally, if your fudge has become hard or crumbly, microwave it for a few seconds to restore its original texture.

Following these simple tips, you can enjoy delicious fudge for weeks or even months after making it.
