My mother and my grandmother, Nana, used to make a few different types of fudge, including boiled variety (like this one), and the very creamy variety, but never one that included sea salt.
I love that salty-sweet play of flavors, so I was excited when I came across this recipe on Honey B's wonderful blog. Honey explains that she found the recipe on Hanne's blog.
Links for their blogs are below and I hope you'll go visit them; both are entertaining and very informative.
Having to watch the amount of sweets consumed; all but two pieces are going out the door this morning as gifts , but of course I had to taste it first!
My verdict? It is deliciously rich and decadent, the little tang of salt adds the perfect counter balance to the deep, sweet chocolate flavor. It's the kind of old-fashioned fudge that I favor, but with an added flavor dimension.
I believe it's my favorite fudge yet. (Mom and Nana would understand!)
So, two big thank-yous are in order~
To Honeyb at The Life and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch.
And also to Hanne at Supper in Stereo which is where Honey discovered the recipe.

It's soo good!
