    Why aren’t you on the way to the kitchen now to make some? There are two ways to make fudge: the candy thermometer/double boiler way and the microwave way.

    While I do like making gourmet fudge blends the old fashioned way, I also like having the quick and dirty option for classic chocolate, or in this case, rocky road. Which got me asking, why do we only make fudge for Christmas?

    Why not other holidays too? Keep an eye out- I’m pretty sure this motivating me to make some Valentine’s Day fudge in the near future!

    Do you know where the term rocky road came from? After the Great Depression, Dreyers (yes, the ice cream people) named their favorite blend of chocolate, walnuts and marshmallows after the long, hard road of rebuilding the country. Since, the type of nuts used has changed, sometimes being almonds and other times walnuts.

    I prefer walnuts. Another little nugget of trivia, I used to work for Dreyers when I got out of college! Although on the East coast it is known as Edy’s.

    I was in charge of Frosty Paws, the ice cream for dogs and so much free ice cream, it was seriously a dream job. Okay, enough about ice cream. We are here to talk about FUDGE!

     

    Another fun fact, no one really knows the origination of fudge, but it was thought to have started with a botched batch of caramel. The first American fudge on the books was sold in Baltimore, where I reside, for 40 cents per pound.
