For a smooth creamy texture every time, we rely on evaporated milk and Marshmallow Fluff.
Why This Recipe Works
Most fudge recipes use heavy cream, but for our Blue-Ribbon Fudge we used evaporated milk instead—it’s a safer bet because it is so stable and won’t separate if overheated. We used Marshmallow Fluff to ensure a light, airy texture. The fluff also protected the sugar from any accidental crystallization, which would have marred the fudge’s smooth texture. Finally, we boosted the flavor of bittersweet chocolate with intense-tasting unsweetened chocolate. With no sugar in it, unsweetened chocolate contains much more chocolate flavor.
