How To: Swirl fudge

Learn how to pour and weigh fudge in a pan and start profiting with fudge.

Quick tips:

The just-poured top layer of fudge will soften the bottom layer a bit, making it easier to swirl.

Don’t just drag the spatula – lift the fudge and then flip it.

The more lines you draw, the more ornate your design will be.

Step 1.

Pour three pounds of fudge into a pan lined with a pre-cut pan liner and let stand for 15 minutes.

Step 2.

Pour approximately three pounds of a contrasting color fudge on top of the fudge already in the pan.

Step 3.

Spread the top layer of fudge so it completely covers the bottom layer.

Step 4.

Place a metal spatula into the pan at the lower left corner.

Step 5.

Holding the pan and liner, push the spatula forward along the bottom at a 45-degree angle for about 3 inches.

Step 6.

Lift the spatula, maintaining the 45 degree angle, and gradually flip the spatula forward so that the bottom layer of fudge covers the top layer.

Step 7.

Repeat the procedure for the middle and far right sections of the pan.

Step 8.

Rotate the pan 180 degrees.

Step 9.

Flip the two remaining sections to reveal the bottom layer.

Step 10.

Shake the pan so the fudge fills the corners.

Step 11.

Insert a clean Setterstix paper stick in the corner of the pan.

Step 12.

While holding the pan with one hand, pull the stick back and forth horizontally across the long edge of the fudge a total of five or six times to create the “swirl” pattern.
