— The Original Recipe —
Sara Murdick sure knew her way around a kitchen, there’s no doubt about that. After arriving in the United States from Germany in the 1800s, Sara and her family eventually opened a confectionery in southeast Michigan, and then in additional locations in northern Michigan before opening a candy shop on Mackinac Island in 1887. All the while, Sara continued to perfect her old-fashioned fudge recipe. Today that original Mackinac Island fudge recipe still features her precise mix of all-natural ingredients, which blend to create a unique, mouthwatering sensation that now comes in many flavors.
In addition to a perfect recipe, the art of fudge making also plays an important role in creating the textured, traditional, old-fashioned fudge that Original Murdick’s Fudge customers have come to love.
