Easy Fudge

Like our other easy fudge recipes here on Hey Mom! What’s Cooking? this uses an alternative to the traditional candy thermometer and mix of milk, sugar and butter. Instead in this easy recipe we use condensed milk.

The condensed milk is already a mix of the milk and sugar and speeds up the fudge making process plus it eliminates the need for the candy thermometer.

Making Fudge with Alcohol

As you are making fudge with alcohol this is an adults-only recipe (although to be truthfully most of the alcohol will burn off by the time you get to eat it).

However, it’s worth noting that when you make fudge with alcohol you will need to stir and boil the mix for longer because of the increase in the liquid content if you don’t you will end up with really soft fudge and the best fudge is one that has a little bit of bite to it.
