Brown Sugar Fudge

Rate this post

Ingrients & Directions

1 c White Sugar; Granulated 2 oz Unsweetened Chocolate; 2 Sqs
1 c Light Brown Sugar; Firm Pack 4 tb Butter; 1/2 stick
1/2 c Heavy (Whipping) Cream 1 1/2 ts Vanilla
3 tb Molasses; * 1/2 c Chopped Nuts; Optional

* This is to taste. The original recipe called for 4 Tbls of Molasses,
STEP 1: PREPARE: Prewarm the thermometer in hot water; use a 2-quart
saucepan; butter the upper sides (inside) of the saucepan; measure all
ingredients except the vanilla and optionals, and dump into the saucepan.
Grease and if necessary, line a 5 X 10-inch pan. Fill glass with ice cubes
and water and the sink with 1/2 inch of cold water. STEP 2: Dissolve the
sugar, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, over low heat until the
butter melts, the gritty sounds cease, and the spoon glides smoothly over
the bottom of the pan. Increase the heat to medium and bring to a boil.
STEP 3: Boil, after washing down any crystals that may have formed, with a
pastry brush dipped in hot water from the thermometer bath, using as little
water as possible. Introduce the prewarmed thermometer. Reduce the heat
while keeping the fudge at a boil. Stir no more than necessary. STEP 4:
Test the fudge mixture in the ice-cold water when the mixture thickens and
bubbles become noisy. Ball, formed in ice water, should hold its shape
until the heat from your had begins to flatten it and should be al dente ~-
slightly chewy — between 230 and 240 (110 and 115.5 degrees C.). Because
of the molasses and brown sugar, it can ball at a lower temperature than
some other fudges. STEP 5: Shock by placing the saucepan in the cold water
in the sink. STEP 6: Seed by adding, without stirring, the vanilla. Then
allow to cool. STEP 7: Stir when luke warm and “skin” forms on the top (110
degrees F.(43.5 degrees C.)). Return the thermometer to its hot water bath
to soak clean. Stir the fudge thoroughly but not vigorously by hand, with
an electric mixer, or with a food processor. Pause frequently to allow the
fudge to react. STEP 8: Watch for the fudge to thicken, lose its sheen, and
become lighter in color or streaked with lighter shade, give off some heat,
suddenly stiffen. If mixing by had, the fudge will “snap” with each stroke;
by mixer, mixer waves will become very distinct, by food processor, fudge
will flow sluggishly back to the center when the processor is stopped. STEP
9: Add the optionals (1/2 Cup Chopped Nuts (walnuts, pecans, or hazelnuts
(filberts)) before the fudge totally candies. STEP 10: Pour, score, and
store when cool in an airtight container in the refrigerator or at room
temperature. YIELD: 1 pound of fudge. Recipe is easily doubled and can be
frozen. VARIATIONS: HONEY BROWN SUGAR FUDGE: In Step 1, eleminate the
unsweetened chocolate and replace the molasses with 1/4 cup of honey. The
honey causes the fudge to ball at a higher temperature. CHOCOLATE HONEY
BROWN SUGAR FUDGE: In Step 1, replace the heavy cream with light cream or
evaporated milk and replace the molasses with 1/4 cup of honey. ORANGE
BROWN SUGAR FUDGE: In Step 1, eleminate molasses, chocolate but add 1 Tbl
corn syrup. In Step 6, add 1 Tbl grated orange zest, plus if you can get
it, 1 tsp of pure orange extract. PEANUT BUTTER BROWN SUGAR FUDGE: In Step
1, eliminate the molasses and chocolate, replace the heavy cream with 1/4
cup of milk and 1/4 cup of creamy peanut butter. To intensify the peanut
butter flavor, add 1/3 of a cup of salted peanuts in Step 9. PRALINE BROWN
SUGAR FUDGE: In Step 1, eliminating the molasses is optional — you’ss get
a more Southern praline with it, a milder one without it–or compromise and
use only 1 Tbls. Eliminate the chocolate. In Step 3, when the mixture
begins to thicken, add 1 1/2 cups of pecan halves slowly so as not to break
the boil or cool the mixture too quickly.

Green Dragon’s Breath Cake

Rate this post

Ingrients & Directions

1 13×9 sheet cake At least 13×9
2 Sheets tracing paper 1 Plastic 3 or 4 inch
1 Pencil Deli container with
Tape Tight lid
Scissors 1 Plastic straw
15×11 foil lined cardboard Green frosting
Base Red frosting in a tube
5inch high coat box 1/4 lb Dry ice

Typed by Annette Johnsen Source: Special Effects Cookbook

Take 13×9 sheet cake and place on foi-lined cardboard base.

Tape 2 81/2x 11 sheets of tracing paper to make 17×11 sheet.

Trace a dragon pattern and cut out. Place pattern on cake and cut out
with a knife.

Frost cake with green icing. Use red icing to make an eye,nostril and
a scale pattern to resemble a dragon.

Take the 5 inch high coat box and cut away and remove one whole long,
narrow side so you can reach into the empty box and from that side
with ease. Place the frosted cake on top of the box.

With a sharp shewer poke a hole through the cardboard base and coat
box. Ream the hole out so that the plastic straw will fit snugly. Now
insert all the way into the coat box so it cannot be seen on the
surface of the cake.

Now poke a hole in the center of the plastic deli container lid just
so the plastic straw will fit snugly. Reach into the box with the
lid and fit the lid onto the straw so that about 1 inch of the straw
sticks into the otherside of the lid. Now you are ready to produce
the special effect.

When you are ready to present the Breathing Dragon place 3 or 4
walnut size chunks of dry ice into the empty deli container and half
fill with hot tap water. (WEAR GLOVES WHEN HANDLING DRY ICE)

Vapor will begin to pour out so quickly place the smoking container
inside the box and fit the lid/straw tightly over the container. The
vapor will be under pressure and will shoot up through the straw and
the dragon’s nostrils.
