Don’t wreck a sublime chocolate experience by feeling guilty. ~Lora Brody
Ever since I was little I have been in love… with chocolate! It’s been said that there are four basic food groups: milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate, and chocolate truffles, and I couldn’t agree more with that. Although, I could add one more: fudge.
Downtown Washington wouldn’t be complete without The Fudge Shoppe. The owners of the business, mother and daughter team Debbie Ballman and Kim Lutz, opened the store seven years ago and it has been a huge success ever since. They purchased the equipment from the previous Fudge Shoppe owners Ken and Donna King when they were ready to pass the business on. The Kings wanted to keep the operation in Washington, and personally trained Debbie and Kim for two weeks before the store changed hands. The mother and daughter still use the same recipes and they make a fresh batch of the Mackinac Island Michigan-style fudge daily. The best part is that everybody who visits the store can observe how this simple, but delicious dessert is being prepared. I got the best seat in the house, so I could share some pictures with you.
Chocolate is the answer. Who cares what the question is.
