Foolproof Butterscotch Fudge
Here is a great foolproof butterscotch fudge recipe that even beginner bakers won't have a problem making. Fudge is generally fairly easy to make, but it can be easy to make the mistake of letting the boiling mixture get too hot and burn. Honestly, sometimes even the most seasoned bakers have made this mistake before. The best way to ensure that your sugar doesn't burn is to use a heavy bottomed pan with tall sides. To avoid crystallization of the sugar, simply just don't stir the mixture in the sauce pan with a spoon as you make this recipe for fudge candy. Instead swirl the pan by holding it by the handle. Also, be sure to use the parchment paper, making the pieces come out perfectly square. A classic, butterscotch fudge like this recipe for fudge candy is one of the many fun desserts we share with you from our family's own collection.
