Our beloved Cincinnati Reds are in the Playoffs! Let’s hope they win tonight. We can celebrate with this fudge. :-)
- 1 Cup White Sugar
- 1 Cup honey
- 1/4 cup cocoa
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1 tsp Red Gel Food Coloring
Using a 5×9 pan (typically same size as banana bread pan, if you want thinner pieces, use 8×8)
Line pan with wax parchment paper or wax paper. Make sure you have some extra on all four sides.
Combine sugar, honey, cocoa, buttermilk, sweet condensed milk, and food coloring in a non stick pan. Stir to combine.
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, but do not scrape down the sides. (to avoid getting crystallized sugar in fudge)
Using a well calibrated thermometer, make sure the fudge gets up to 238 degrees.
Reduce heat and allow fudge to simmer.
DO NOT STIR.
Allow fudge to cool to 110 degrees and add butter and vanilla.
Beat by hand or use electric mixer until fudge loses its sheen.
Place in prepared pan and allow to cool, usually 1-2 hours.
