Fudging Awesome Fudge

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of fudge.  But my wife and kids like it…a lot! This “fudging awesome fudge” has an intense chocolate flavor and a smooth, creamy consistency.  My son, who is 13, came up with the name, and I thought it was pretty spot on.  Hope you like it.  This recipe came from Cook’s Illustrated.

Bring sugar, evaporated milk, and butter to boil in large, heavy-bottomed Dutch oven over medium-high heat, stirring constantly.  (I used a saucier.)
