GochuJang Fudge

Hi!! Today’s recipe is brought to you by my team. We had a little spring break get together and they challenged me to come up with something unique. Since one of them is Korean, I decided to channel her and came up with…. Gochujang fudge!

What is Gochujang? Spicy Korean bean paste. It has the deep, salty umami of miso with an intense spicy kick. Gochujang is usually reserved for savoury dishes, but if miso chocolate is a thing, so can Gochujang chocolate!

  2. Simmer for 45-60 min on medium low heat, stirring constantly until reduced by 2/3.
  3. Reduce heat to low, stir in cocoa powder until fully incorporated. Remove from heat and chill 20-30 minutes.

Note to skeptics: The fudge doesn’t taste of beans! The gochujang adds depth and a very sneaky heat

I hope everyone enjoys some sweet treats.

Did you try anything new? Let me know! With that said, have a great week and see you next time!
