The Fudge That Never Hardened

So, with a recent get-together, my friend and I decided that we were in the snacking mood. But, like all people, we never want to just pull something out of the pantry. No, we must bake! We raided the cookbooks and decided that a slight alteration on a rocky-road fudge recipe would be fun. We melted the cream and chocolate and mixed it with the marshmallow cream (this was our alteration…rather than using mini marshmallows, we decided the cream form would be a fine substitution). Once it was all mixed together (with light marshmallow chunks), we poured it into our 8×8 ” pan. We added some butterscotch chips, then stuck it in the fridge to harden. We waited, and waited, and waited…after about two grueling hours, our fudge still wasn’t hardening. Baffled, I decided sticking it in the freezer would be another option to try. After being in the freezer for another hour or so, we discovered that this fudge would not be firm. Although the taste was delicious, the texture was far from right. What could have gone wrong? Any ideas? The greatest chefs had to fail every once in a while, right?

This is what our fudge looked like.  The liquid fudge (before the hardening!).

  1. Wow! Looks yummy! I’d love to help, but I’m not much of a fudge girl, I bake cake and brownies a lot more often. But maybe try sticking in the freezer right away? I don’t really know, haha. Don’t listen to me. But I just wanted to say that it looks really good!
