These combinations, no matter how over-the-top are no mistake, unlike the first batch of fudge. It is rumored that fudge derives its name from a “fudged” batch of caramels made way back in the 1880s.

To honor this tradition, we have comprised a list of 25 fudge recipes that are over-the-top because of their inventive recipes, scrumptious taste, and overall perfect representation of the sweet. Find your own fudgy inspiration by checking out our complete list.
