What to Serve with Fudge
Fudge is always tasty with milk, coffee, or tea. It even pairs well with dessert wines. You can also serve it alongside other sweet treats as part of a larger dessert spread. Some great pairings include:
- Be sure your fudge mixture is fully incorporated before chilling. You can't overmix it.
- Be very gentle when spreading the frosting over the pudding mixture so you end up with clearly defined layers and not mud.
It makes the fudge creamy and sweet and creates the classic fudge texture with no need for cooking.
Fudge will last for about 2 weeks in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer.
Fudge was an accidental invention. It came about when bakers accidentally "fudged" a batch of caramel.
