Ultimate creamy fudge

Production: 10 – Serving
Preparation: 5 Minutes
Cooking: 20 Minutes

Of all the littles treats that are concocted in our kitchens, the creamy fudge has a special place in our hearts. It was often hung on our grandmother’appron that we’ve discovered these tasty morsels of pleasure. Besides that was, for many people, the first recipe we have been able to participate in because it was often the children who were designated volunteers to stir the hot mixture to give it that magical smootness.

We have already presented a recipe for a quick and easy creamy fudge, but this time it’s the ultimate experience that we share with you.

Inspired by a recipe on the JasminCuisine site and slightly modified in our kitchen, this fudge is by far the tastiest and most unctuous we had the pleasure of tasting.

A little sin of gluttony, this creamy fudge will delight you.
Incredibly simple to prepare and so good in the mouth. It is excellent with a small-bodied espresso.
Note however, that this little treat should not be abused because of the high fat and sugar content.
