4.Cool fudge up to 1½ hours or until the temperature of the mixture drops to 40°C/80°F. Remove thermometer. Stir fudge with wooden spoon about 10 minutes or until a small amount dropped from the spoon holds its shape. Spread fudge over chocolate in pan; smooth surface. Cover with foil; stand at room temperature about 2 hours or until set.

Glucose syrup is also called liquid glucose; it’s available in most supermarkets and delicatessens. Store fudge in an airtight container for up to a week. Slice is best served at room temperature. Using a candy thermometer will ensure perfect results.
