Step 1.

Pour fudge from the kettle into a mixing bowl.

Step 2.

Add 2 tablespoons of water. This is important because added ingredients will absorb moisture from the fudge.

Step 3.

Thoroughly blend in the water.

Step 4.

Per the recipe, add in nuts and/or chunks of candy and mix thoroughly.

Step 5.

Use the scraper to guide the fudge into the pan and smooth the surface.

Step 6.

Another way to add-in ingredients, such as mini-marshmallows, is by sprinkling the appropriate amount according to the recipe over the surface of the fudge.

Step 7.

Push the marshmallows into the fudge.

Step 8.

Be sure to cover them completely so they don’t dry out.
