What is the difference between caramel and fudge?

The difference is indeed in the taste, the fudge has a sweet chocolate creamy taste and a rigid deep texture. The fudge resembles candies, confectioneries.

Caramel is made of milk and sugar, it is sticky and doesn’t have the chocolate taste. It is used as a sauce, while the fudge is a dessert on its own.

What does fudge taste like?

Toll-house famous fudge is sweet and has a rich taste. It isn’t like any other dessert. The unusual melting texture will be appreciated even by those who don’t like sweets.

The mixture of chocolate, condensed milk, nuts, and marshmallows makes this fudge amazing. It is hard to stop eating after trying the first piece.

Do you have to refrigerate fudge?

Of course, if you don’t let the fudge cool down, it will turn into cream, which can be eaten with a spoon.

After cooling the fudge gets its awesome texture, it will get rigid and become the full-fledged dessert. It needs to be stored in the fridge, too.

Why is my fudge grainy?

I think it could happen because you didn’t boil it for enough time. The sugar didn’t melt and the texture became granular.

I recommend boiling it for 4 minutes after reaching the boiling point so that all the sugar melts and the texture becomes smooth and indiscreet.

How long does fudge last?

The fudge can be stored in the fridge for 4 days. Nothing will happen to it. Just don’t keep it on a plate, put it into some container. But I think you will eat it before 4 days pass.

Baking Tips For Toll House Famous Fudge

  1. To make the taste more chocolatey you can add more chocolate, but in that case, I advise adding less sugar.
  2. Use nonstick dishes with fat bottom because sugar becomes rigid and turns into caramel fast when you put it on fire.
  3. Brown sugar will also go very well with this dessert.
  4. It isn’t obligatory to take a square form. You can use any, even round, form, it will only change the shape of the fudge
