The sweet National Fudge Day is celebrated on June 16. Indulge your taste receptors with a refined dessert that sets up a romantic mood.
Legends of the holiday say the dessert originated when a pastry chef, whose name has disappeared in time, intended to make caramel. The master made a mistake in the ratio of ingredients and created an unusual dessert in a wood-burning oven. The treat became widespread at the turn of the XIX-XX centuries: young girls and college students made it everywhere.
The state of Michigan regularly hosts a Fudge Festival. Profile shops provide a huge selection of sweets from the manufacturer, a real feast of taste!

Fudge is difficult to make: it is necessary to control the temperature at different stages, observe strict portions of the ingredients, and monitor the consistency of the syrup.
How to take part
Make fudge with a recipe passed down through generations, inherited from a grandmother in a handwritten cookbook. If there is no inspiration, buy the handmade dessert at a grocery store, present it to a loved one or office colleague, taking care to put it in a beautiful package in advance. This touching gesture will brighten up the festive day.
