WHAT IS FUDGE

Fudge is a type of dense milk-based candy that is made by mixing sugar, butter and milk. The ingredients are heated until it reaches a soft-ball stage at 240 °F (116 °C). The mixture is than beaten as it cools, to achieve smooth, creamy consistency. Fudge is firm and smooth, not soft or crumbly, and has slightly chewy texture.

WHAT IS CHOCOLATE FUDGE

Chocolate fudge is a fudge made with chocolate, sugar and milk,  or condensed milk. A variation to a classic fudge recipe made with  chocolate and can be flavored the same way as the classic fudge. Please refer to the post  – WHAT FLAVORS TO USE FOR CHOCOLATE FUDGE

WHAT CHOCOLATE TO USE FOR CHOCOLATE FUDGE

For making fudge, melt-able chocolate chips or discs are ideal. These are also known as baking chocolate. These chocolates come in a varying percentage of cacao used in each.

For instance, the dark chocolate comes with a higher percentage of cacao, wheres milk chocolate has a less percentage of cacao, as it contains more milk and sugar, for a creamy, mild flavor.

Also, the higher the percentage of cacao in chocolate, the chocolate will be bitter. So, depending upon how sweet you like your fudge, you can choose the chocolate.

Both dark chocolate and milk chocolate would work fine. However, dark chocolate contributes to a very rich, intense chocolaty flavor.
I personally, do not prefer white chocolate as it is overly sweet for my taste.
