the making of fudge  
I have made just about All The Fudge In The World. I've added it up, and all told it's going to be 75 pounds (there are a couple left to do this weekend). That's a lot of fudge. A LOT of fudge.

Here are the ingredients, from The Big Shopping Excursion:

Prepping a 12 pound quadruple batch. This is NOT for the uninitiated: I came very close to screwing this up. Expert level fudge-maker only.

This in no way conveys just how much fudge is on the platter. 12 pounds is a huge amount of fudge.

The plate of fudge/previous picture holds as much as is in those two pans, plus another of the large pan's worth.

About 30 pounds worth of fudge.

So that's basically what I've been doing with practically all my free time the past two weeks. Making fudge and packaging it to send to the world. :) It's actually been quite a lot of fun, if exhausting, and I may very well do it again next year, if people are interested. :)

I think I'm most flabbergasted by the pile o' ingredients. Holy heart attack, Batman!

That's not actually all of it, either, but it's the bulk of it. :)

*If* people are interested? **IF**??


I have now tasted your fudge. There is no "if"

This has made me excited about offering a 'bake sale' tier for my next Kickstarter.

Gaming fudge
I'm taking a 2 pound sampler of your Fudge (chocolate, chocolate walnut, maple ginger) to Big Bad Con this weekend, and sharing it with fellow gamers. Sharing it, yes! Not hiding in my room and devouring it all.

(Livejournal helpfully suggested the Subject should be "Godzilla has no daddy".)

Re: Gaming fudge
What a strange thing for LJ to suggest!

It's *very* kind of you to share it! I admire your fortitude!

My plan is to bring most of it home for christmas. What I expect to happen is that there is none left to bring...

Perhaps if you just put it in the freezer immediately and don't open it at all...? :)
khrister on October 20th, 2014 04:09 pm (UTC)
It just arrived. The smell when opening the box makes it even more unlikely that any will survive that long...

oh, well, in that case...enjoy! :)
