Fudge is one of those special treats that brings up memories of vacations, carnivals, and fun times with friends and family. This sweet, rich, sugary confection comes in many flavor varieties, but it always has the same, gooey, thick, soft texture. This gooey texture plus the highly sugary flavors make fudge one of the most decadent confections, one that can satiate even the toughest of sweet tooths.
Fudge is a sugary confection that has a very soft, smooth texture that is created during the cooking and cooling process. While similar to a ganache—a common ingredient in the center of truffles and other chocolates—fudge is less granular and shouldn’t contain any noticeable sugar crystals. Quality fudge will feel completely smooth when eaten, and this signature textures produces a rich, heavy mouth feel that makes the confection seem so decadent. While most American fudges do contain chocolate, it is not a required ingredient; many flavors of fudge that contain no chocolate whatsoever are very popular, such as peanut butter, vanilla, caramel, and fruit flavors. Many types of fudge also contain nuts and fruits.
