Vanilla Fudge with Spoon & Tag
Fudge? Why the name? What is it anyway? Fudge was discovered by girls from Vassar while visiting Baltimore Maryland in the late 1800s. There they encountered a candy-maker selling an interesting and delicious chocolate from a pushcart. He told the girls how to make it and they did – over a paraffin lantern in their rooms. So, why “fudge”? Because it wasn’t exactly chocolate…but was “fudging” it…i.e. making it up. Word spread and college girls starting making their own versions everywhere. Vanilla, peanut butter, and many others soon came along. Comes with a spoon and tag telling the story.
