Never-a-failure Fudge

fudge-2In comedy, timing is everything.  You can say exactly the same when you work with sugar, making various candy and fudge.  My timing has always been way off with fudge and I become the laughing stock of my family.  Just the idea that I have to melt sugar and do something with it makes my hands sweat and my heart palpitate.  I was forced to manage the palpitations because a recipe book for my kids won’t be complete without a fudge recipe.  At the age of 44 I manage to successfully make fudge for the first time!
