FAQs on Chocolate Fudge

1. Why is my fudge sticky like toffee?

Overcooking or not stirring the mixture for enough time can turn your fudge into a toffee-like texture. To achieve that perfect melt-in-your-mouth texture, control the temperature precisely and constantly stir the mixture. Cook to the sweet spot (not the scorch zone), and your fudge will be heavenly.

2. Why is my Chocolate Fudge still soft?

Soft fudge can be due to two reasons: undercooking (not reaching the right temperature) or not letting it cool completely. If you haven't let the dessert reach the right temperature while cooking, you might need to re-cook it. If you did, maybe it just needs more time to cool and set properly. Let it rest in a cool place for several hours, and it might just firm up!

3. Why is my Chocolate Fudge so sticky?

Sticky fudge likely means it didn't reach the right temperature while cooking for the sugar to set properly. Try reheating the mixture gently while monitoring the temperature for a smooth, creamy Chocolate Fudge. 

4. How long does Chocolate Fudge last?

Homemade Chocolate Fudge can be enjoyed for up to 2-3 weeks at room temperature as long as it's kept cozy and wrapped in wax paper. Don't keep it in the refrigerator - the cold air draws out the moisture, leaving you with a crumbly, less-than-delightful experience.
