Fudge Is Not Soft
My homemade fudge is not soft. It is hard.
It tastes like fudge but is just not the right texture. I am making it for the church holly market and I am about to throw it out the window. Can you help?
I am using...
- 900g sugar
- 112g butter
- 410g of whole milk
- colouring and flavours
The process is heating slowly until dissolved, bringing to the boil, reducing the heat and maintaining a steady boil until it reaches 240f.
Standing for 5 minutes then beating in the flavouring and colour if used.
I haven't used that particular fudge recipe, but you may be able to simply lower the cooking temperature by about 5 degrees and see if that helps.
There are different types of fudge. I've had both firm/hard and soft. I prefer soft myself, too. But, like you said, it still tastes good when it's hard - just different.
I would certainly NOT throw it out the window! :) Mmmmm. That would be a real shame.
I prefer this much simpler microwave fudge recipe
called Fantasy Fudge. It's so quick and easy, and it is soft and delicious.
Maybe some other fudge lovers will also comment on your fudge dilemma and provide some additional advice or tips to get your recipe to work more like you want.
