Battle of the Dishes

Oh, Fudge! Bass Pro Shops Tackles Cabela's Homemade Sweets

They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. The way to a woman's heart is just as simple. In fact, it can be summed up in one little word: chocolate. Doctors even compare the endorphins secreted during chocolate consumption to the ones produced during sex. Oh, my! Is it hot in here?

Fudge doesn't quite pack the "stimulating" punch of real chocolate, but it combines a little bit of that chocolaty satisfaction with the warm, wholesome feeling you get when you spot an old-fashioned childhood classic. Problem is, there aren't many places in Phoenix where confectioners make their own fudge. For this week's Battle of the Dishes, we tracked down trays of real homestyle fudge tucked next to guns and ammo. Let the battle begin!
