Caramel Fudge Recipes

This is a very old-fashioned caramel fudge recipe. It gets its rich flavor from the caramelized sugar. It's rumored that this is the origin of fudge as a dessert. In the late 1880s, it's rumored that a baker let her caramel recrystallize in their cooking pot. This happy accident led to the creation of a sweet buttery treat known as caramel fudge. This recipe won't taste like a happy accident.
