Each morning, trim off any dry edges from your fudge and set it aside.
Add these pieces to a new batch of fudge during the last 20 minutes of the kettle’s cycle.
You can add vanilla into chocolate and chocolate into chocolate, but don’t add chocolate into vanilla or you’ll end up with discolored fudge.
Most people don’t realize that although fudge is delicious when freshly made, it can actually be frozen for up to a year without losing any of its flavor!
Make sure your fudge looks good every time you remove it from the pan.
Probably the biggest mistake I ever made in business was not making my own fudge sooner. I wish I started with Calico when I opened my business in 1988.
