Publix Aprons Cookie Butter Fudge Plated Recipe

Fudge is certainly a welcome addition to any holiday dessert table, but did you know that the first piece of fudge was made after someone “fudged” a recipe? The origin of fudge can be traced to 1886 when it was made for the first time by accident after a batch of caramels went wrong. Shortly after, a local grocery store in Baltimore started selling the sweet treat for 40 cents a pound.

Here’s everything you need to know about fudge!

Secrets Behind the Treat

If fudge was created by candymakers attempting to make hard caramels, what’s the main difference between the two sweets? As you would probably guess, both have the same three baseline ingredients — sugar, butter and cream.

In the end, the temperature is what differentiates hard, sweet caramels from smooth, delicious fudge. As the tiny sugar microcrystals continue to melt, the fudge gains its mouthwatering smooth texture. The key to making fudge is to monitor the sugar crystallization and get the crystals to form at the correct time.
