The best things in life are those unplanned; unplanned events, recipes, and the like. Of course, any unexpected moment which brings sheer joy and happiness to your life is considered exceptional and worth repeating. Like fudge, when you least expect it.  “But how did fudge come to be,” you say. Ironically, by accident.

Exactly 134 years ago, in the year 1886, a letter was found written by a student, Emelyn Bettersby Hartridge at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York. Contained in the letter was a recipe (of fudge) her cousin had made. Her cousin, whose name is not mentioned, had been selling the fudge for 40 cents/pound. (See Vassar for more information)

 Two years later, Hartridge had used the same recipe to make fudge for an auction at Vassar. Word soon traveled, and in the late 19th century, a similar product was sold in Mackinac Island, Michigan. Some fudge is still made and sold in Mackinac Island, Michigan,

Word soon spread from Mackinac Island, Michigan to Shoreham, Vermont. 

Today, we have created the creamiest, luscious fudge most would define as necessary. Or, rather, phenomenal.

So phenomenal, that even our customers wonder what we did right to create this scrumptious dish…

Especially when making our fabulous Peanut Butter Fudge recipe. 

That’s right…our Peanut Butter Fudge is so fantabulous that you can enjoy it just in time for National Peanut Butter Day! This Friday the 20th, come together with those who love peanut butter and celebrate the wonderful creation of Peanut Butter Fudge (someone did something right). Be joyous of this flavor because of the many scrumptious treats one can make. Here are some of my favorites: spread on celery, crackers, apples, bread and chocolate. For those peanut butter chocolate fans: add a spoonful to hot chocolate for the ultimate warm drink . Use as a sauce and melt on top of ice cream, toasted bagels, and strawberries. 

Do you have any other ideas?
