My 3 favorite fudge recipes are those that are easy and don’t require many ingredients. In fact, if the recipe calls for more than five items, I look for another one.
For that reason, I enjoy the three fudge recipes I’ve posted here. They taste as good as any I’ve purchased from candy makers. But the cost of the ingredients is quite a bit lower than any specialty fudge I’ve ever purchased.
One of the many things I like about these fudge recipes is the fact that you can purchase all of the ingredients and keep them in the pantry until you need them. In fact, if you see a sale on any of the items, get as many as you have room for.
What You Need for These 3 Favorite Fudge Recipes
You don’t need a candy thermometer to make any of these types of fudge. Basically, all you need are a bowl, a spoon, a pan, and a microwave. However, there are people who prefer not to use microwaves. So I recommend a double boiler.
Another thing I recommend doing is using foil to cover the pan. This makes it easier to remove the fudge after it sets. Otherwise, you’ll probably break the first piece when it’s time to dig it out. When you line the pan, you basically just lift out the foil, pull the edges away from the fudge, and cut.
Texture of My 3 Favorite Fudge Recipes
Different types of fudge have different textures. Some fudge is firm, while other forms of it are chewy—almost like caramel. I like mine somewhere in the middle.
Blogger Buddies with Fudge Recipes
I have several friends who blog and post their own fudge recipes. If you’d like to try a variety of types, check out Julie’s Velveeta Fudge at Back to My Southern Roots, Miz Helen’s Key Lime Fudge at Miz Helen’s Country Cottage, and Marilyn’s Sweetheart Fantasy Fudge at Marilyn’s Treats.
More Delicious Desserts
Sometimes I’m in the mood for fudge. But other times I want a different type of dessert—like cookies, cake, or pie. If want cookies, check out these pecan brownie cookies or flourless peanut butter cookies.
I hope you enjoy all of these recipes. Please feel free to share this post!
