A Flavor for Everyone

Whether you’re a fan of chocolate, peanut butter, peppermint or white chocolate there’s one thing we can all agree on: there’s nothing quite like a square of homemade fudge. It’s one of our favorite DIY Christmas candies and we whip it up for everything from birthday parties to potlucks all year round. It never fails to please! The trick to making a creamy, dreamy batch? Don’t stir the sugar mixture as it boils. Let it cook (undisturbed) to 234 degrees F and your final candy will have the crystal-free texture you’re looking for.

Peanut Butter Fudge

This fudge is a total triple threat, thanks to peanut butter chips, crunchy peanut butter and chopped roasted salted peanuts. Using sweetened condensed milk, makes it quick and easy to achieve a thick, fudgy texture without cooking raw sugar; no candy thermometer required!

Chocolate Fudge

Making fudge (the traditional way) is an exact science. Cook your candy to the wrong temperature and you’ll end up with something completely different than what you expected! That being said, we can’t think of anyone better than Alton to show you how it’s done.
