  Largest slab of chocolate fudge-Lansing Community College sets world record

  LANSING, MI, USA -- LCC culinary professor William Nicklosovich, Crosby and a team of Lansing Community College students created a slab of fudge that weighed 5,500 pounds-setting the world record for the Largest slab of chocolate fudge.

   Led by LCC culinary professor William Nicklosovich, aka Chef Nick, and Jim Crosby, aka Peppermint Jim, the sleep-deprived cadre cooked on LCC's West Campus.
   They worked throughout the night and so did several of the students who volunteered to chop chocolate and make fudge.

   "People just need to stick together," philosophized Nicklosovich, who said he likes to emphasize the importance of networking, teamwork and communication to his students. He and Crosby relied on a network of 200 sponsors, culinary and hospitality students and faculty members to reach the intensity of work that happened this past weekend.

   The fudge was sold for $10 a pound, and the money will benefit local charities.

   The road to the record has been paved with some previous unsucessful attempts by Peppermint Jim. In 2003, he made it to 850 lbs. of fudge. In 2007, his attempt failed before he reached any pounds at all.

    The Northwest Fudge Factory in Ontario made the previous world's largest slab of fudge - at 5,050 pounds - on May 24, 2007.
