Mimi’s old fashioned fudge for untimely sweet craving

Kids and adults alike have sweet teeth and when a tempting dessert is presented, no one can resist. However, learning the art of making dessert requires passion for desserts and good recipes. At Mimi’s, you get to experience an old fashioned fudge that will make you ask for the recipe. Here, we will present the secret recipe straight from Mimi’s kitchen. Try it at home exactly the way it’s presented here.

  • ¼ cup Butter
  • 2 ounces of unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • A pinch of salt
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla

Place a square cake pan over low heat and melt some butter in it. Add milk and chocolate and stir over low heat until the chocolate melts. After that, combine corn syrup, sugar and salt and continue stirring until the sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a boil. At this point, lower the heat and add a candy thermometer. When the temperature reaches 234 F, remove the pan from heat without stirring any further.

Add butter and vanilla to this mixture on top and allow it to cool until the temperature reaches 110 F. now remove the thermometer and place walnuts. Use a wooden spoon to mix again. From here on, the fudge will lose its gloss and the consistency is getting thicker. Quickly and neatly spread the mixture over the pan with butter. Use a spatula to spread it evenly and leave it there for a while.

You don’t want to mess with the fudge at the point because then it will lose its creamy texture. Now with a knife dipped in hot water, divide the fudge into evenly spaced squares. Allow it to cool completely and then cut again. Storing the fudge in air tight container is ideal; however, you may have to keep it at room temperature at least 24 hours before serving in order to retain the best flavor and texture.
