Last updated 21st August 2016. Fudge is a type of confectionery which is made by mixing sugar, butter and milk, heating it to the soft-ball stage at 240 °F (116 °C.
The mixture is then beaten while it cools so that it acquires a smooth, creamy consistency.
Fruits, nuts, candies, and other flavors are sometimes added.
One of the most important attributes of fudge is its texture. The end-point temperature separates hard caramel from fudge.
The higher the peak temperature, the more sugar is dissolved and the more water is evaporated.
This results in a higher sugar-to-water ratio.
Before the availability of cheap and accurate thermometers, chefs would use the ice water test, to determine the saturation of the confection. (source)
So can hamsters eat fudge at all?
Unfortunately they cant at all. It is far too sweet for them to eat even to nibble on.
A food to avoid feeding them.
