Another fudge success story! This recipe isn’t difficult but takes FOREVER, but it’s fine with me for how awesome the end result is. With the red and white color scheme this is going to be a perfect fudge to include in my Christmas goodie boxes. So now it’s 3 down and 1 to go for fudge recipes to be used for said goodie boxes.
This is definitely not a fudge you can make if you’re in a time crunch. It was an entire afternoon event for me and while I didn’t have to stand around monitoring it the entire time, it still took a serious chunk of time. As an idea, the cooling down stage before you can mix the fudge took around 2 hours. And that’s just the cooling down time. The cooking time was almost another hour for me, but this is because I didn’t use a deep enough pan so I had to cook it at a fairly low temperature to keep it from boiling over which made it take longer.
The biggest tips for this one are to use as tall of a pot as possible and to make sure not to stir the fudge mixture at all while it’s boiling. You will want to stay really close for the first 10-15 minutes the fudge is boiling, as this is when there’s a chance it could boil over and you will have to change the burner temperature accordingly. Follow the directions to the T and there’s no reason this shouldn’t work.
