I have someone who is interested in purchasing fudge from me. I'm not exactly sure on how much to charge her. For those of you who sell fudge, do you double or triple the price of the ingredients?

My aunt sells it (Iowa) for $12-15/lb depending on flavor. Chocolate is 12, brown sugar is 15 but no one else there makes it.

It varies in price here from $8 to $12 a pound depending of flavor. Plain chocolate is cheapest with the vanilla/cherry, hazelnut, penuche going for more. Hope this helps.

The fudge recipe that I'll be using (4 chip fudge) makes about 4 1/2 pounds of fudge and it'll cost about $8-$8.50 to do the whole thing. The fudge is basically semi-sweet chips, milk chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and butterscotch chips, as well as butter, sweetend condensed milk, marshmellow creme, and flavoring. Any more suggestions?

I sell pounds of fudge on a daily basis in my shop...this time of year it is not usual to go through 20lbs a day. I sell it for $9.50/lb. That is roughly 5 times my ingredient cost but is the "norm" around here.

i wholesale out my basic chocolate fudge with no nuts for $6 a pound. That is well above what it costs me to make, but my fudge contains no chocolate chips or marshmellows that would push the cost up considerably. It only costs about $1 a pound for me to make.

I make and sell fudge at Christmas. I sold the first year for double my costs but....with your time and electric or gas and wonderful simple ingredients you should charge about $12-14 per 2 lb batch. People don't mind at all.   They sure aren't making it.  Good luck. I did very well. Alot of work but on my schedule and no one managing but me. I cleared enough to buy lots of Christmas presents and pay a car payment.
