Foolproof Dark Chocolate Fudge.
Does anyone have a recipe for fudge made without powdered sugar? — Fran Georgiou, St. Petersburg
Bill Henry of Largo shares a recipe for foolproof dark chocolate fudge that really is foolproof and does not contain either confectioners' or granulated sugar. This fudge comes together quickly and is a snap to make. It sets quickly, so once the nuts and vanilla have been incorporated, get it into the pan and then the refrigerator. It has a very creamy, almost melt-in-your-mouth texture. Think holiday gifts.
