Fudge gets its melt-in-the-mouth consistency from the small sugar crystals that are created by beating the mixture as it cools. If you beat the mixture before it has cooled to 110C, you will encourage larger crystals to form, which can result in a grainy texture.
Fudge know-how: temperature
You need to be precise when making sweets and confectionery, so it’s worth investing in a sugar thermometer.
