Hi! Just opened a store a couple of months ago. We make caramel apples, chocolate-dipped everything.... We have a Savage Bros. commercial stove and copper kettle top and would like to use it to make fudge. I am having the devil's own time trying to find a basic recipe for chocolate fudge and for white fudge for commercial copper kettles. Does anyone out there have a couple of good ones to share please???

Once we have the two basics we know how to make about 20 different kinds of fudge. Our store manager is used to a Calico Cottage kettle and mix, but I do not want the extra equipment or to use mix, since we make everything else from scratch.... HELP!!! :

Fudge is a grained caramel, and can have a very wide range of acceptible recipes.  Several questions determine recipes best for your use. 

How are you making the fudge, are you hand beating on a marble slab, in a creamer?

Will you form a loaf on the table to be cut, or cast into moulds or boxes?

Are you looking for ingredient restrictions?

What shelf life are you looking for?

I currently also use Calico and would love to not use them and make my own from scratch.  I have a savage Brother's Firemixer 14 and make toffee and caramel but can not locate a good recipe for fudge.  I pour the fudge into 8 oz containers and loaf pans.  Any recipes to try would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Lynda,

Hi Brian,  I've heard nothing.  Guess no one wants to turn loose of their recipes.  I'm still using Calico.  Shipping costs are the biggest problem with them.

HI Lynda, I wish I had some for you also, but I have not found any yet to give. I agree, the shipping is the worst part but I think it would also be less per pound if made by a recipe also, then I can wholesale it better. I am also looking for other things to add to my line. Do you make your own caramel in your firemixer 14? or other things yet? I am looking for recipes or other things I can make in it also. Have a great day, Thank you,

Brian

Hi Brian,  Email me and we can talk about what I've accomplished for Caramel.
