ISO Soft fudge recipe

mrsmegawatt Dec 10, 2012 07:54 AM

I'm trying to find a recipe for fudge. I tried some at a party a couple of years ago and it had a nice soft texture. Usually I make the kind with the marshmallow creme but that recipe is often pretty solid...not hard but solid. This fudge had a velvety soft texture. Any suggestions?

    I'm coming along for the ride with you, Mrs. M. I just searched both this board and in general last night for the same thing. Do the marshmallow-based recipes tend to be grainier? I have it in my head that they are. My grandmother's recipe was both fluff-based and not creamy. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I haven't tried any recipes yet, but the ones I've gathered thus far are sometimes as simple as chocolate, sweetened condensed milk and butter. Sounds plenty creamy to me. Here is one to get the ball rolling--all the reviews are positive and the fudge in the photo actually LOOKS creamy. Nevermind look how easy! :)

    I'd like a creamy peanut butter fudge, too. I found this, but am not sure it will have the creamy texture we seek:

    Here is a photo of my favorite, favorite fudge from Franklin General Store in Mystic Village in CT. I wish I could just ask for their recipe--it is perfection fudge in my book:

      kattyeyes I think you are right...that fudge is grainy.

      The lavender fudge recipe looks so simple. I've seen those with sweetened condensed milk but have never tried. I think I will try this..minus the lavender as I'm not a floral flavorings person and see how it turns out. Thank you for posting. I'm baking today or tomorrow and I'll post back!

        Okay I tried the recipe with the sweetened condensed milk. Very easy. Not the texture I was looking for. It almost has a plastic texture for lack of a better word. I don't know if that's the right word. It's odd. I don't know that I would says its better than the fluff recipe. Just easier

          Oh, dammit, I'm sorry to hear/read, but thank you kindly for reporting back. I really want to learn to make fudge the way we like it. Back to the drawing board...
