Mackinac fudge is easy to make, and each bite is filled with chocolate joy!

Thank you to everyone who voted for their favorite dessert from Michigan, as well as interesting facts about the state! I love hearing about them. You can vote for next week's dessert (Minnesota) here.

While Mackinac fudge isn't Michigan's official state dessert, it did make Michigan famous for it.

You can make the fudge in just an hour. First, mix together your two sugars, butter, and milk in a large pot.

Once the butter melts, add in the powdered sugar and cocoa powder.

Yes! There are three kinds of sugar in this fudge recipe! A thing to avoid is to make your fudge grainy. This is because the sugar has crystallized.

When you're melting your butter, don't take your spoon or mixing utensil out of the pot. Just keep on stirring until you're ready to take the mixture off the heat.
