Honest to goodness homemade chocolate candy

Again in my quest for the perfect fudge (not on Mackinac Island), I came up with this recipe. I failed miserably. It started with the idea of the fudge sauce on the Bumpy cake. I thought with a couple tweaks this could be a great fudge. Again, I failed miserably. But what I did make is a really good chocolate candy filling, so yeah, that’s what I was going for the whole time. Sure I did. I hope you like it.

2 sticks butter
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup sugar
1 pinch salt
