Question by Wishful Spirit: Why did my fudge take so long to cool?
Hi everyone. Last night I made fudge using this recipe:

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/chocolate-fudge-recipe/index.html

This recipe said it would take 10 minutes to cool and then to mix it. It took it an hour and a half to fall to the temperature stated in the recipe, and though it did set up, the texture was a bit looser than I like (the fridge firmed it up nice).

Why did it take so long to cool, and is there a way I can make it cool faster?

Here’s some additional info:

I had to take the temperatures called for down by 10 degrees to compensate for my “mile high” altitude and may have got it a little too hot.

I forgot to put the butter on until halfway through cooling, by which time the butter had warmed up.

The house was really warm that day.

It was too hot, taking longer to cool off. But you can send some over to me and I will tell you how it tastes.
