Gingerbread Fudge

Ingredients:

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup dark brown sugar

1/4 cup molasses

1/4 cup light corn syrup

3/4 cup evaporated milk

1/2 tsp. cream of tartar

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

2 tbs. butter

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp. ground ginger

1/4 tsp. ground cloves

1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

 

Directions:

Line an 8″ square pan with aluminum foil and spray with non stick cooking spray. In a sauce pan over medium heat, add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, molasses, corn syrup, evaporated milk and cream of tartar. Stir constantly until the candy boils. Add chocolate chips and stir until the chocolate is melted. Do not stir after the chocolate is blended. Remove from heat when the candy reaches 238° on a candy thermometer.  Stir in the butter, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg. Stir vigorously until well blended. Using a mixer on medium speed, beat for 10-12 minutes. The fudge will be ready when thickened, creamy and has lost its gloss.
