This evening after work, I went to a really fun fudge cooking class.
Who would have thought making fudge could be so fun? Credit for that goes to the instructor “Perfect Purple Pants Paul”! His sense of humor really made what I thought would be somewhat boring fudge cooking class, really fun.
I’m going backwards here…at the end of the class Paul asked what we all liked best. Several of us said the History, Culture and Legends he told us.
From the first batch of Fudge in 1870 to Hawaiian heritage.
The Artist, who’s artwork is showcased on the gourmet fudge boxes, does fabulous work. The Artist, Robert King Andia, is using Composite Photography, made up of 800 photos in one photo box.
Paul told us fascinating Myths and Legends about Madame Pele and some of the other Hawaiian demigods.
When we arrived at the Fudge Making Class, I thought we would actually be cooking the fudge. Lucky for us they did all that hard work before we arrived at the class.
The fudge was waiting for us in large plastic containers. When we were ready, the fudge would go into the microwave to heat up to the proper temperature.
First we chose Chocolate or Vanilla. If we chose vanilla, we could also choose a color if we wanted to. Next we chose an optional flavoring spray, and then up to 3 items to put in our Fudge.
Basically half a cup per 1 pound of fudge. Our instructor, Paul, had lots of goodies to choose from: Candy, Nuts, Coconut, to Powders; all kinds of fun things to put in our Fudge.
Once the hot fudge comes out of the microwave you have ten seconds to spray 5 sprays of flavoring onto your fudge, dump your toppings inside, stir and fold your Fudge…and then it all goes into our beautiful box. All that in 10-15 seconds!
It was fun watching everybody put the fudge together. I went last so I could watch everybody else first…😉.
My Fudge Creation was named “Merry Berry” (yes, we named our Fudge, and each is entered in a specialty Fudge Contest). It is the top photo on this page. I chose Chocolate, my flavoring is Rum, and I added in Pecans, Peanut Butter Chips and Raspberry Mash (jam look alike). My friend Chrissy was adding Butterfingers crumbles and I couldn’t resist adding some to the top of my Fudge as well.
All in all we all agree we had a great time at the Fudge cooking class.
