Cocoa Powder Fudge Recipe
by "Bob Widdows"
(Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico)
I am looking for a cocoa powder fudge recipe. I am over 80 years old and decided to make some fudge. I have not made fudge in over 30 years or so. It was recommended to me to go to the internet to find a recipe.
When I saw thousands of recipes, it was hard to pick one out. Well, I picked out many, many fudge recipes to make exotic different flavors of fudge.
I was always thought fudge was home made chocolate. That it was made with powdered chocolate that made a home made chocolate that you cut up in squares.
All of the recipes used premade chocolate adding different ingredients.
I have one question? How do you make fudge out of store bought chocolate bars or chips?
P.S. Don't they use chocolate powder any more?? Making fudge was a fun family project.
I hope you will answer these questions.
Dear Bob Widdows,
Sorry to hear you have had such a difficult time finding the kind of homemade fudge recipe you are looking for.
You're right. Many fudge recipes these days use a solid chocolate. But there are traditional or "old fashioned" fudge recipes that allow you to make your fudge "from scratch."
There is a cocoa powder fudge recipe on our fudge recipe page
. The first recipe called Basic Chocolate Fudge
can be made with either chocolate pieces or cocoa powder (or powdered chocolate, as you call it).
Also, here's another cocoa powder fudge recipe from Hershey's Cocoa
that you might like to try.
I hope you will enjoy making many flavors of fudge. We'd love to hear from you again when you've given these cocoa powder fudge recipes a try to tell us how they came out. :)
P.S. Sorry that I can't tell you how to make chocolate chips or pieces from cocoa powder. That's a question that many people are looking for the answer to. :)
