This Sunday isn’t just Father's Day -- it's also National Fudge Day. By most accounts, the first batch of fudge was concocted in Baltimore in the 1880's. By the turn of the 20th century, fudge making arrived on Mackinac Island in northern Michigan.

 

The Michigan Public Radio Networks Rick Pluta tours the modern day "fudge capital."
