Milk products are used in fudge to contribute to flavor, hold fat in the emulsion, and provide body. Various types of milk products may be used in fudge, ranging from evaporated or condensed milk to whole milk or heavy cream. Because evaporated and condensed milk have had much of their water removed during processing, they require a shorter cooking time. Fresh dairy products are valued for their superior flavor. Each dairy product has its own unique advantages. (For specific information on dairy products.)
