Hey, I have no idea about a substitute, but I'm sure our resident bakers will be responding soon.

Just wanted to welcome you to DC!!

I am not exactly sure how it will effect your fudge, but we have used half n half before or evaporated milk. The worry here would be that neither would be heavy enough for the fudge to be as dense as it should be or set up as it should.

Just for future reference--not only are there substitutes, but they're a lot healthier than using heavy cream.

1) Use skim milk and add corn starch
2) The most common substitute is ricotta cheese. Some people use cottage cheese. Some mix the two.
3) evaporated milk + some vanilla extract.

All will substitute for heavy cream.
