Homemade Fudge Question

Anne H | Dec 29, 2007 02:53 PM

I made a lot of chocolate fudge when I was a girl; it was what you did when you had a sleepover or were just bored or whatever, a couple times a month, it seems to me.

I'd like to make it with my kids, but haven't made it in years and have no idea what recipe I used to use.

I've bought fudge a couple of time and am always disappointed. Pricey, and not what I remember. I want something very chocolately, and with a very fine grain that dissolves in your mouth -- not at all sticky (is that the word I want?). The fudge I have occasionally bought has been a) often not chocolatey enough and b) not quite the texture I am looking for.

Anyone have ideas to help me figure out which recipe to use?

(At my best friend's house, the fudge always set; her mother was quite annoyed with us if it didn't. At my house, my mother shrugged and laughed if we had to eat the fudge with a spoon. Different recipes? A more permissive atmosphere let us be careless? Who knows.)

Thanks for any help with this!
