Hmm ... It's been a long time since I made fudge, but I used to do it every Christmas as a kid and don't remember using a candy thermometer. In fact, it was really easy ... What recipe are you using?

I do sympathize about faulty candy thermometers, though. If they decide to go bust on you while you're in the middle of a batch of candy, you end up stuck with a mess of burnt sugar unless you're practiced at discerning the soft ball stage, etc. But don't feel bad about your phailed phudge. The last time I made penuche, I popped a piece of the delectable confectionary in my mouth only to crunch on tiny pieces of glass from the tip of my thermometer, which apparently had decided to shatter whilst stuck in my pan of penuche-to-be.

Rather like the Monty Python sketch "Crunchy Frog":

Constable: And what about this one ... "Spring Surprise"?
Proprietor of Wizzo Chocolate Company: Ah, that's one of our specialities ... covered in dark velvety chocolate ... When you pop it in your mouth, stainless steel bolts spring out and plunge straight through both cheeks!
Constable: Well, where's the pleasure in that? When people pop a nice little chockie in their mouths, they don't expect to get their cheeks pierced!
