Oh… Fudge!

One must have stunning failures before achieving great success. 

I think I ruined a perfectly nice All Clad Stainless steel pan this afternoon.  My mom’s “foolproof” fudge recipe turned to carbon before my eyes and super-glued itself to my pan.  The house smells like burned marshmallows and I wince each time I approach the kitchen sink and the charred remains.

Guess I’ll finish the dishes tomorrow.

Does anyone have a foolproof fudge recipe?

What a bummer! I hate it when that happens. I hope you were able to get your pan clean.

1) go to farmer's market/ Deli/ Christmas Bazaar/ candy store/ coffee shop
2) find candy seller
3) taste fudge
4) buy fudge

foolproof. But that's my foolproof recipe for everything.

I think Mom always made the one off the Kraft marshmallow Creme can: http://www.kraftfoods.com/kf/recipes/fantasy-fudge-51833.aspx

As I recall there wasn't much opportunity to burn the marshmallow because you added it (with the chocolate) *after* you removed the pan from heat and immediately pour after it melts. You could scald the sugar/milk/butter concoction while boiling but not if you don't step away.

You can microwave instead then never have to worry about ruining a pan.

This sounds kinda like when my older sister was supposed to teach me how to make fudge...
