Contrary to popular belief, Fudge originated in the US during the late 19th century. One origin story contains a confectionary maker who "fudged" the recipe for some French caramels - low and behold, Fudge

The exact origin story of Fudge isn't 100% clear, but we do have records of recipes for Fudge dating as far back as 1886. The originally recorded recipes for fudge were very precise with measurements and cooking times to achieve that perfect smooth melt in your mouth fudge that we all love today.
Another one of the earliest recorded origin stories dates back to the 1920s. A student at Vassar College by the name of Emelyn Battersby Hartridge (class of 1892). She had written a recipe for Fudge that she had made in her dorm room and sold at the college campus. It became a trend and many more women started making fudge in their dorm rooms in the evenings using Bunsen burners or gas lighting fixtures.Fudge Facts
