Fudge is a creamy, semisoft candy most often made with sugar, butter or cream, corn syrup and various flavorings. The most popular fudge flavor is chocolate. However, maple flavored fudge made with maple syrup, butterscotch flavor made with brown sugar or dark corn syrup and vanilla are also favorites. Over the years though, peanut butter and peppermint fudge have become super popular.
