Can you believe it’s almost the 4th of July! I’m beside myself but I still wanted to be sure and share this fabulous American Heritage Historic Fudge recipe with you before the holiday passes us by.
I know when I think of fudge, I think of the winter holidays but I seriously don’t think I could without a good piece of fudge all year. I mean seriously, there is nothing like a nice piece of the perfect fudge.
AMERICAN HERITAGE® Historic Fudge
This American Heritage Historic Fudge recipe is a charming take on a much-loved classic from the New-York Historical Society’s BV Cookery, circa early 20th Century. Of course, it’s been given an awesome modern-day boost from the one and only American Heritage Chocolate. Not only is it the perfect fudge recipe for the upcoming 4th of July holiday, it’s perfect for sharing with family and friends.
- 2 cups sugar
- ½ cup AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate Drink Mix
- Butter the size of a large egg (about 4 tablespoons, with extra to grease the pan)
- 1 cup milk
- "Boil until it's sugary on the sides of the pan and puffs up and is thick," is all the undated manuscript offers. We offer the following elaboration: Combine sugar, milk and AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate Drink Mix in a medium saucepan, stirring constantly. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer.
- To check if it's done, drop a small ball into a bowl of cold water. It should form a soft ball. Or use a sugar thermometer and cook until 240 degrees F. Remove from the heat and beat well with a spoon. The mixture should be very thick and about to set. Pour into a greased 8x8-inch baking pan and let cool. Cut into squares and serve.
