If you are a fudge connoisseur, I’ll be the first to tell you that this is NOT a recipe for you. If you are a fudge dabbler and want an easy, cute treat for Valentine’s, then this recipe IS for you! How do I know it’s not for fancy fudge eaters? I had a tester.
Serving up this recipe in my practice round was the first time that I have ever doubted how someone was going to react to something that I had made. I know I make good cupcakes and cakes- look at the size of me, I clearly enjoy them! But, when it comes to something like fudge, I don’t really like it. I love chocolate, but not fudge. It’s a glitch in my system. One of my coworkers LOVES fudge and so she was my tester for this recipe. While she enjoyed it, she admitted that it wasn’t like a true fudge where you need a candy thermometer and hard ball/soft ball stages. I’m going to search for a real fudge recipe and see how I do with that one day! But in the meantime, with all of my extra Valentine’s candy hanging around the house, this easy-cheater fudge is perfect!
You can substitute any colour of melting chocolate for this recipe but I love the pink! The more artificial the better, right? That’s what all the people on YouTube tell me when I make rainbow coloured cakes . . . ha. Ya, right. “Do you know how many chemicals are in those colors?” No, and I don’t care. It looks pretty!! Life is short. Live it colourful.
