Cotton candy is delightful. Fudge is delightful. So it stands to reason that Cotton Candy Fudge would be delightful, doesn’t it? And it’s one of those strange phenomenons, because cotton candy is a bit too much for me, unless it’s the maple cotton candy from the sugar shacks in March. And fudge is a bit too much for me, unless it’s some warm, homemade fudge from the BigE Fair in September. We have missed a year of both of those things! Sob. Anyway, put cotton candy and fudge together, and it’s not too much. It’s just perfect. And totally easy to make too!
