Here's the solution to your problem.
1. Go to grocery store
2. Purchase the most decadent vanilla ice cream in the freezer section and buy a candy thermometer
3. Bring ice cream home
4. Fill bowl with ice cream
5. Slather runny fudge over ice cream
8. Make more fudge using thermometer
"As a girl I had zero interest in the stove." - Julia Child
This is real inspiration. Look what Julia became!
start it off in a double boiler or in a ss bowl over boiling water. when it gets as hot as it's going to, transfer to a pan over direct heat. keep stirring it so it doesn't scorch. bring it up to the soft ball stage. if you don't have a themometer, test in ice water or keep a saucer in the freezer and test a teaspoon or so. it should make a soft ball after it's cool. add a few tablespoons (or more) of sugar and stir. this should start it to granulate, but it's not always successful. if it does granulate, you've got fudge. if it doesn't seem to be granulating, add a couple of tablespoons of butter. you've got something like chocolate caramels or toffee. you can roll it into balls and dust with cocoa powder.
let me make sure that wine's ok before i use it.
I made my first uneatable fudge last Sunday at my annual candy day with my sisters. It was chocolate taffy. LOL
It wasn't until I was on my way home that I realized what I had done. I put the chocolate chips in with the milk, sugar and butter to boil to 234!! DUH!!!
