recipe

Traditional fudge recipes require a candy thermometer and a fair amount of precision to get the texture just right; this streamlined recipe is simple enough for children to make (with supervision, of course) and relies on the addition of mini marshmallows for silkiness.

Delight guests at a wedding or shower with their own tiered "cake." For these fudge treats, which can be made with white or dark chocolate, cookie cutters form bite-size layers resembling those on a wedding cake. Pink sanding sugar serves as icing, and paper doilies enhance the dainty display.

recipe

When making fudge, follow the instructions to the letter and make sure your candy thermometer works correctly. To check it, put it in a pan of boiling water; it should read exactly 212 degrees. Timing can vary greatly in candy making, depending on the weather and your equipment, so follow your candy thermometer readings, using the times given in the recipe guidelines.
