Fudge is a very popular food item if you have kids in the house. It is a perfect idea for lunch packets or party ideas, as well as fundraisers at school market. Schools do quite a lot of carnivals and fund raisers and if you are a young mother and love to be in the kitchen, why not try this one out. Thinking back at my high school home economic class, I remember we had fudge as a practical, counting marks. There are lots of ways to do fudge, this recipe, a recipe using a candy thermometer to check out the soft ball stadium, or even microwave fudge are popular these days. If you do not have a candy thermometer, do not worry, there are for sure other ways to follow to get the same result. One of them is called the 'Cold water method'. You can also be creative and make chocolate fudge or make variations such as nutty, caramel, fruits, marshmallows etc. Fudge is a lovely snack, but remember it is an item that contains a lot of sugar, so if you watch your figure: keep in mind to simply just eat one small piece! If you enjoy this, try out the Turkish Delight.
