About this project

STRETCH GOAL UPDATES

$2,500 Stretch Goal - Reached

Homemade Marshmallows

 Well, we have arrived at the first stretch goal in only about 10 days!  So, what does this mean for YOU, the backer?!  It means you now have the option of adding some delicious, homemade marshmallows to your current pledge reward!  I will be offering 4 awesome flavors:

  • Plain Jane - A basic marshmallow for your eating, toasting and hot chocolate drinking pleasure.
  • Vanilla Bean Puff - A hint of vanilla and a dash of vanilla bean.
  • Strawberry Whipped Delight - A pink puff with bits of real strawberry.
  • Chocolate Cloud Heaven - Like a light, heavenly cloud of chocolate.

If you've never had a homemade marshmallow you are missing out!  You may add marshmallows to any pledge (except the $6 reward level) and there will be no extra shipping costs involved (yes, that means you too Canada!).  Here are the add on prices for marshmallows:

  • NEW PRICING IN $5,000 STRETCH GOAL!

To add marshmallows to your current pledge simply increase your pledge by the amount listed above for how many marshmallows you would like.  After the Kickstarter campaign ends you will get an email from me where you will be able to tell me what flavors of fudge you'd like and what any additional money pledged is for, like Epic Puppy Chow or homemade marshmallows.

$5,000 Stretch Goal - Reached

I have added two new homemade marshmallow flavors and LOWERED the price to add marshmallows to your reward! (one flavor per dozen please)

  • 1 dozen = $9
  • 2 dozen = $15
  • 3 dozen = $20, add $6 per dozen above 3 dozen

Flavors

  • Plain Jane - A basic marshmallow for your eating, toasting and hot chocolate drinking pleasure.
  • Vanilla Bean Puff - A hint of vanilla and a dash of vanilla bean.
  • Strawberry Whipped Delight - A pink puff with bits of real strawberry.
  • Chocolate Cloud Heaven - Like a light, heavenly cloud of chocolate.
  • Lemony Zest - A hint of lemon flavor with real lemon zest.
  • Orange You Glad To Eat Me?! - A little puff with BIG orange flavor.

Epic Chow

Backers now have the option to choose between Epic Puppy Chow and Epic Cake Batter Puppy Chow as an add-on for only $6.

Welcome to The Epic Fudge Factory (EFF).  One bite of our fudge will have you saying EFF...that's good!

Here is what some are saying already:

"creamy!"

"MMMMMmmmmmmmm"

"I like Oreos. It TASTES like Oreos. I LOVE IT!" 

"Just the right mix of peanut butter and chocolate."

"orgasmic"

The goal of this campaign is simple...get as much of EFF's epic fudge out to as many people as possible! With a funding goal of only $500, everyone can get fudge.  I know $500 is a lot of fudge but, at full capacity, I can easily make 100 lbs of fudge in a day!

I have been making fudge for over 5 years now. It probably took me a full year to get my method perfected to where every batch I make now is perfect. During the holidays it is my duty to make fudge and other goodies for my family gatherings. They don't give me a choice, it is a must!

Enough about me, let's talk about why you're here. The goods!

These are the flavors I currently make:

  • Epic Chocolate - Rich chocolate fudge that melts in your mouth.
  • Dark Chocolate - Made with dark chocolate for those that don't care for super sweet fudge.
  • Mint Chocolate Swirl - Chocolate fudge with a blast of mint swirled in.
  • Peanut Butter - Peanut butter lovers this fudge is for you!
  • Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl - The best of both worlds.
  • Dark Orange - Dark chocolate fudge with a hint of orange.
  • Dirty Cookies 'N Creme - Tastes like you are eating an Oreo cookie.
  • Orange Dream - Orange and vanilla fudge swirled goodness.

Recently added flavors!

  • Chocolate Raspberry - Rich chocolate fudge with a hint of raspberry.
  • Dark Raspberry - Dark chocolate fudge with a hint of raspberry.
  • Yin-Yang Swirl - Rich chocolate fudge swirled with creamy white vanilla fudge
  • PURE Mint - Just mint fudge, maybe more mint than you can handle!
  • Vanilla Raspberry Swirl - Creamy white vanilla fudge with raspberry fudge swirled in.
  • The Whiteness - Creamy white chocolate fudge with a hint of vanilla.
  • Chocolate Cherry - Rich chocolate fudge with bits of dried cherry
  • Cherry Vanilla - White chocolate fudge with bits of dried cherry
  • Blueberry Vanilla - White chocolate fudge with bits of dried blueberry
  • Chocolate Blueberry - Rich chocolate fudge with bits of dried blueberry

Adding nuts to a flavor is included at no additional charge, for you nutty people! You may add walnuts, almonds or pecans to single flavors only, no swirls.

I currently make my fudge using store bought marshmallow creme and my fudge is awesome; but I decided (after seeing a few successful homemade marshmallow Kickstarters) I could make a better product if I could make the marshmallow creme from scratch. So for the Kickstarter I will be making the marshmallow creme from scratch. This leads me to rewards, add-on's and stretch goals.


REWARDS

All rewards will include "The Epic Fudge Factory" stickers.  All backers will also get exclusive access to a video on how to make epic fudge at home.  The video will go through everything you need and will include tips and tricks on how to make perfect fudge every time!

<3 The Valentine's Day reward was just added so it will not show in the list below.  It is also the only reward that ships in time for Valentine's Day!

ADD-ON

The only add-on at this point will be Epic Puppy Chow (aka. Chex Muddy Buddies) unless we hit our stretch goal (below). Epic Puppy Chow is Chex cereal coated in a peanut butter, chocolate and powdered sugar. It is delicious and always a huge hit with my family and friends!  Add it on to any pledge (except the $6 pledge) for only $6 per bag.  Each bag contains over 3 cups (9.5 oz, that's over a 1/2 lb.).

STRETCH GOALS

Since I will be making my own marshmallow creme I will only be one or two steps away from actually creating homemade marshmallows.  When we reach $2,500, I will open up homemade marshmallows as another add-on!

THANK YOU!!!

I would like to personally thank you for checking out my Kickstarter. For those of you that pledged, you will get a survey (a few days after funding is completed) where you can let me know what flavors of fudge you'd like, if you want to add nuts, any add-on orders, shipping info, ect. If you want to suggest a new flavor of fudge that I don't currently make just leave a comment in the comments section. That way if anyone else wants that flavor also they can comment also.

Lastly, you can track this project on Kicktraq.

AND since I love the Kickstarter community so much I am more than happy to contribute back by Kicking It Forward.  Please check it out of you haven't heard of it. http://kickingitforward.org

Risks and challenges

The only real risk to this project is massive success which would simply push back the ship date for later backers. I have all of the recipes and have experience making them all. The Kickstarter will cover the cost of ingredients, some extra supplies, shipping materials and shipping. I purposely made the funding goal of this project only $500 so that everyone that wants some fudge can get some!

FAQ

  • The "new" flavors are basically fudge flavors I have thought of but haven't actually made yet. I will be making these throughout the campaign and if they are epic they will be added as options. I will post frequent updates with pictures and descriptions of any new flavor options! I don't see a problem with me getting through all of the new flavors I have listed, except for maybe the s'mores fudge which is going to be more of a fudge/dessert bar.

    Last updated:
  • The marshmallows are cut to about 1" x 1" x 1", about the size of a regular store bought marshmallow. They are all cut by hand so no two are alike and they can vary slightly in size!
