#AtoZChallenge – F is for Fudge


This was a “festive season only” staple in our house when I was growing up. My mum made chocolate fudge (recipe below) and brown sugar candy. Both were mouth-wateringly delicious but I think the best thing of all was getting to eat what remained on the spoon and on the sides of the pot after it was made.

  1. OH, my yes! I remember making and eating that fudge. mmmmmm!
    I am almost 81, so I have made it for many years, but it has been a while! It made my mouth water this morning (early), and crave that stuff once again. Thanks? I think. Ha. Best regards to you, friend! Ruby

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Ruby. I didn’t mention in the post that it was always a wooden spoon that was used to stir the fudge as it cooked. Looking back, I think getting to lick the spoon and clean out the pot were the best part of all.

  3. Ohmygosh you’re making me sooo hungry. My mom makes the greatest fudge too, always at Christmas. I’ve tried it a few times myself but it’s never turned out for me. Then again, I’m not the cook my mom is. 😉
