I've made you a free printable sheet of our chocolate fudge recipe so you can share one of our best homeschooling treats.
This recipe works either as a brilliant homeschool activity or if you're just looking to make the best yummy fudge recipe.
Cooking with your kids is usually a hit - especially when you end up with such a fabulous result.
But cooking fudge isn't always plain sailing. Once you've tried learning how to make it and you've ended up with a sticky burnt mess in the bottom of the pan you're not keen on trying again.
Here's my son William proving that he loves cooking fudge!
My son William has perfected this recipe for you.
To make it easy for you, I've made a free chocolate fudge recipe printable which you can download as you head off to the kitchen.
These are the ingredients you'll need:
I bet, just like in our homeschool, your kids love eating fudge.
Our homeschool recipe is obviously great for kids to eat as a treat. But in terms of learning how to make fudge I'd leave turning your kids into homeschool chefs until they're a bit older.
There is one special tip I can pass on that's essential when you're learning how to make chocolate fudge recipes:
They're not expensive and once you've got one you can use it for your favorite jam recipe too.
But without it you just don't know how hot to make the mixture and instead of excited faces sniffing the kitchen you'll be opening the door to let out the smell!
You'll find all the instructions in our free printable.
But there is one bit to watch out for. Where it says:
"As soon as your candy thermometer reaches the right temperature whip the pan off the heat and leave it to stand for 10 minutes."
It's important to resist the temptation and leave the pan alone!
You don't want to stir it or even shake the pan until it has cooled to about 110 degrees F/43 degrees C.
Luckily I have another yummy chocolate cupcake recipe
