Keys to Successful Fudge:
1. Have a thermometer.
I don’t like the old fashioned ones that you clip to the side. Those never work for me. I like digital and use this one.
2. Use Baker’s sugar. Also known as caster or superfine sugar.
I don’t always follow my own rule because I don’t always have it on hand but it makes for a less gritty fudge.
If you don’t have it you can run the sugar through a dry blender or food processor to make it superfine.
3. Use good butter. Preferably European.
They higher the butterfat content the better.
Cheaper butter often has too much water in it and will cause your fudge to separate.
4. Same goes for your chocolate.
The cheaper the chocolate the more likely it is to separate.
If using chips I tend to use Guittard. And when making extra special fudge I used TCHO
3 cups (600g) granulated sugar
¾ cup (1½ sticks or 170g) butter
2 tablespoons strawberry jello powder
⅔ cup (168g) evaporated milk
