Nutty Fudge Day

Nutty Fudge Day

Nutty Fudge Day is a day you don’t want to miss if you have a sweet tooth! The earliest recorded evidence of fudge dates back to a letter written in 1886 by Emelyn Battersby Hartridge of Vasser College in Baltimore, USA. Other stories include a college lecturer in Virginia who was teaching toffee making but the temperature wasn’t high enough, resulting in fudge. Another story is that fudge was accidentally invented when a baker was trying to make caramel. The invention of fudge may have been an accident but the subsequent eating of it certainly isn’t!

In Europe, fudge is usually made just from sugar, cream and butter while American-style fudge also contains chocolate. Just add in some crunchy nuts and there’s your nutty fudge! Easy to make but hard-to-resist, nutty fudge is best enjoyed with friends. Why not whip up a batch and make up some games for the kids to enjoy at the same time. Just remember to clean those teeth afterwards!
