I had a random craving for fudge the other day, not the fudge that you usually see in the "Fudge shop', but the fudge that Belizeans make. My fondest memories of visiting Belize as a child included eating fudge. The greatest thing about this dessert/candy is that is easy to make and you can add anything you want to it or eat it plain. I like peanuts and rasins in mine. Try coconut as well.
What is your favorite childhood memory?
Latley I have been eating healthier, so making this I started to laugh and called my mom the convo went like this:
Me: I just made fudge
Mom: How did it turn out? Did you get it right? (*the trick with making fudge is if you dont' let cook long enough it wilh be mushy)
Me: I got it just right, now who was the genius who invented fudge, condensed milk that already has sugar in it, add MORE sugar and then butter... Oh well it taste good
Belizean style fudge
1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp. Butter
1 tsp vanilla
Mix all ingredients together in a pan. Cook at medium heat stirring constantly.
When it reaches a brownish color, place a few drops of the mixture in a glass of water and if it becomes firm then it is ready (aka 'softball state'.) Add peanuts and and continue to stir for 2 min then pour the mixture on a buttered baking sheet and cut in to squares before it gets hard.
