Well folks it’s that time of the week again where the fudge kettle is turned on high and Culinary Apple smells like chocolate! Before working at Culinary Apple, I had never made fudge. Jumping into it can be a little nerve wracking, especially after Papa Dave has everyone addicted to his fudge-y creations! Thankfully, he's a great teacher and I'm learning quickly about what makes our fudge so delicious.
One of the things I've learned is that while our Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge is always yummy. It's times like today when it tastes the best. Why you ask...? Today I got to the bottom of the peanut butter jar, and that means just a little bit extra peanut butter gets mixed in. That little bit extra makes our already creamy Peanut Butter fudge even more creamy and more delicious.
Today I also tried to get a little fancy with our homemade fudge. I always say you eat with your eyes first, and I've really been working on perfecting those beautiful swirls Dave seems to make with ease. Even though I am new at this, I still want those swirls to be perfect. Today, I tried a new technique to see how it would go, hoping that my swirls would add some flair. Well folks, it worked! Chewy Praline looks pretty with caramel swirls dancing on top. Now I want to add swirls to everything!
