Ok, I feel like lately, this blog is turning into a cry-for-help, in that…I cannot stop making all the bad-for-you desserts that we’re supposed to avoid! And, it’s ten-zillion times worse when I make it, and it stays in my house for me and the family to eat, bc I don’t know about you, but that generally means that the kids will have some, E might have one piece or so, and yea, the rest is mine by default. Gross.
Still, seeing (and drooling over) a fudge recipe on Pinterest is a sure-fire recipe for bathing suit-season disaster. But, thankfully, that dreaded season is still months away, so bring on the homemade fudge!
So, this truly couldn’t be easier- melt chocolate chips w/condensed milk and a dash of salt; remove from heat and add in some vanilla extract. Tada, fudge.
I’m pretty suspicious, so we’ll see- but the best part of this “we’ll see” is that the fudge has to cool for about 2 hrs, bringing it well past the kids bedtime. Oh well, guess I’ll have to be the taste-tester this time!
Be back in a bit!
So…my “I’ll be back” turned into two years- sorry!
This was a tricky recipe bc it seemed to change dramatically w/temperature. Initially from the fridge, it tasted good but seemed like I had just put chocolate frosting in the fridge; it wasn’t “fudge-y,” just chocolately and sweet. However, after the ride to my parents house (about an hour and a half), I tried it again, and it was GREAT- even the consistency was perfect. But then…later that night, out of the fridge for a few hours, the vanilla seemed so overpowering and actually kinda gross.
So, if you know just when you’d like to serve this (down to the hour!), this is a great recipe, especially bc it’s crazy-easy! But, it’s really difficult to judge how it’ll turn out over time, so I may just keep on searching for a fudge recipe!
