Oh, fudge, the bottom of this page is completely destroyed and unreadable. That’s a bummer! We will never know the recipe for Brown Sugar Candy, and that’s a shame. I am going to tell myself that maple sugar candy is similar and leave it at that, but I’d guess that’s not really the case.

A quick search for fudge recipes yielded a lot of recipes that use chocolate chips. Now I don’t fault anyone for using them, because it’s probably easier and the sweetness is balanced right out of the bag. The use of cocoa powder and sugar falls under the “old fashioned” fudge recipe category, I suppose. There are many old fashioned fudge recipes and this seems to compare with several. The use of vinegar is an example of kitchen chemistry – the vinegar works to prohibit crystallization of the sugar as it cools, thereby keeping the fudge smooth and creamy. Apparently you can also use cream of tartar or lemon juice in its place. I’m not much of a candy maker, so this is new information for me. :-)


2 1/4 cup sugar

2 1/4 cup milk

4 tbsp cocoa

1 tbsp butte

pinch salt

1 1/2 tsp vinegar

1 tsp vanilla
