    1. 1
      In a 3-to4-quart heavy-bottomed pan over medium-low heat, stir sugar, cream, and corn syrup, continually scraping the bottom of the pan with a heatproof flexible spatula, until sugar is completely dissolved, about 15 minutes.

      Deliciously chocolatey, rich and creamy - the whole family loved this recipe. I also loved Barb's very detailed instructions - I felt she was right there, next to me, guiding me through the recipe. This is the first time I've made a fudge recipe that I can say I'm 100% pleased with, and I do think it is thanks to the great instructions (and the great recipe, of course).
