In 2009, Peppermint Jim and Chef Nick Nicklosovich made headlines as Certified Guinness World Record Holders for creating the world’s largest slab of fudge. The end result weighed 5,200 pounds and was made at Lansing Community College West Campus, Conference Services, Delta Township, Michigan, USA, on June 29, 2009. The total measurements were 38 ft long, 14 ft wide, and 1 foot thick. The world record is certified by Guinness World Records and the World’s Records Academy, among others.


The fudge took 72 hours to make and the proceeds of this event went to LCC scholarships for underprivileged children.
