It's National Peanut Butter Fudge Day. For many Americans fudge is one of the most popular sweet treats that goes back decades. Historians say the origin of fudge dates back to the 1800s. Back then when people used the word fudge it mean't someone messed up. As the story goes; one day a chef accidentally " fudged" a batch of caramel transforming it into the soft sweet confection we know today as fudge.
While today is dedicated to Peanut Butter Fudge consumption, you can also find fudge in a variety of flavors ranging from fruits, caramel and chocolate. Fudge is comprised of sugar, butter and milk and is usually smooth with a creamy consistency.
