Fudge is a Western confectionery, which is usually soft, sweet, and rich. It is made by mixing sugar , butter and milk and heating it to the soft stage at 240 *F/116 *F, and then beating the mixture while it cools so that it acquires a smooth, creamy consistency.

The most popular fudge flavor is chocolate .
