Social Pantry Sherry Fudge

Part of the fun with recipe testing is experimenting with different flavour combos and that’s exactly how our Sherry Fudge originated.  It’s definitely been a seasonal favourite this year amongst our catering clients at afternoon teas and events alike – Alex Head likes to think that we’re responsible for bringing Sherry right back into fashion!

A melt in the mouth fudge paired with a golden oldie tipple will never disappoint (especially your Dad!).  So give this recipe a shot, it also makes for the perfect edible foodie gift too – just bag it up, tie with your favourite ribbon and label with a handwritten note.
