Foolproof Dark Chocolate Fudge

Foolproof Dark Chocolate Fudge

Who doesn’t have fond memories of their grandmother or their mother standing over the stove tending to a big pot of fudge for the holidays.  I know I do.  I don’t have the best track record when it comes to making fudge.  On multiple occasions I have waited days, yes days for it to “set”.  Which of course it never did, only to give in and end up call it fudge sauce.  Because that is what I was planning on making anyway, right?  On other occasions, I have burnt the chocolate beyond recognition.  I have tried numerous recipes; my Grandmother’s, my Mother’s, even my brothers (yes, even he has successfully made fudge).  After trying just about everyone I could find, I finally came to the conclusion that I just can’t make fudge.  Of course,  I know what the problem is.  I’m not good at precision.  I don’t own a candy thermometer (probably the only gadget I don’t own) which according to all the recipes is a must have.  I want it to be easy, I want to know it’s done, based on sight, texture, feel.  This is the way I cook.
