      Dixie Crystals Insight

      *good quality chocolate will always give the best results in candy making. Less expensive chocolate will not give a delectable smooth result. For this fudge choose chocolate containing about 55-65% cocoamass. Lower numbers will make the fudge slightly sweeter while higher numbers will make it stronger in chocolate flavor and it will be less sweet.
