Butterbeer Fudge Bake Along

This is one of my most popular offerings. Even those who aren’t fans of butterscotch or don’t typically enjoy fudge have found themselves happily nibbling away at one of these frothy-looking squares. The recipe has been on this site since 2018, but that doesn’t mean you’ve given it a go yet. Making fudge can be quite unnerving if you’re not used to making candy. The base gets quite hot and can easily burn you, you need to hit the right temperature in the softball stage range to get the consistency you want, you have to mix your ingredients so they’re smooth before they set, and then there’s the clean up which looks intimidating (just soak everything in hot water with a drop of dish soap).

If you’ve been holding off on trying this recipe for want of a push, here’s a slight nudge. Watch me cook up a batch and then bake along with me on your second watch! Come back and tell me how it went. How did the batch turn out? Did you end with more confidence than when you started? Are you going to make another batch now that you got all the nerves out in the first batch? What did you end up doing with all of that fudge?! (Pssst, fudge freezes really well, lasts a long time, and takes no time to thaw on a countertop.)

One thing to note: If you are gluten free, find butterscotch chips that are not Nestle. Nestle uses barley protein as part of their flavoring/coloring. This is not labeled on all of the bags. If you’re not concerned with gluten, then grab a bag and go to town.

Ready? Let’s do this!
