Who can resist a good old-fashioned homemade fudge? No one can say no to homemade dessert recipes, and fudge seems to be a favorite in every household. So easy to make, and even easier to eat, this is a rich, chocolaty fudge that melts in your mouth. Fudge recipes date back as far as 1886, and even though no one really knows who invented fudge, there are stories of the recipe being created because of a 'fudged,' or in other words, messed up, batch of caramels. Fudge and caramels have similar ingredients, but their consistency is different with caramels being chewier and fudge being softer. Fudge is more like a frosting consistency or a fondant which is heated in a sauce pan, and mixed to a smooth, creamy consistency and then cooled to harden.
