For a number of reasons that are explained following, we have chosen cream fudge as the subject of our presentation. At the beginning, we would like to explain what it is and give some specifi cations concerning this product. Cream fudge is a creamy, semisoft candy most often made with sugar, butter or cream, corn syrup, and various fl avorings. The most popular fudge fl avor is chocolate, though maple (made with maple syrup), butterscotch (made with brown sugar or dark corn syrup), and vanilla are also favorites. Fudge can be plain and perfectly smooth (most popular) or it may contain ingredients such as nuts, chocolate chips, candied or dried fruit, and so on. It may be cooked or uncooked, but both styles must be allowed to set before cutting.
