One of the great things about this 30 Day Photography Challenge is getting to lurk and find new blogs to read… that’s how I stumbled across “Oh, for the Love of the Blog“… Natalie moved from her home in the United States to Costa Rica for work. One of her friends gave her an AMAZING ‘Fudge for loneliness’ recipe…you can find the recipe HERE!
I was surfing blogs on my lunch and found out how EASY making fudge was… and that I had all the ingredients…and well it was history! (I actually stopped everything to make it–perhaps I might have a chocolate addiction, but that’s another story!?) I didn’t take photos of making fudge that day… but did take some the next time I made it! (ok-so it’s only been 6 days…but I did share the first batch, honest!)
It’s as easy as 1-2-3… why have I never realized how simple it was to create fudge?
First you need the chocolate chips…
- …this is what chocolate chippets look like after they have arrived on a sealift! (I think they melted or something on the way up..they taste the same, but aren’t their normal dark brown colour–go figure?!)
Then you carefully microwave–don’t want to burn the chocolate… stirring is key to help ‘melt’ chocolate quicker!
Then you add the other stuff you need (if you need to see what click on the recipe HERE!)… mixing it all together! As I was making this I was thinking my friend Amanda would not how to do this ‘more’ professionally… after all she use to work in a REAL CHOCOLATE factory, and makes the BEST truffles and other yummy chocolate inventions!!!
I have the PERFECT square tupperware container to pour the fudge into… (I lined it with waxed paper).. and popped it in the fridge to harden…. (all you need to do is cut it up and share with friends…)
The best part of the recipe “Pour into your little pyrex and let it harden. Then eat it all.” So I didn’t really eat it all… I didn’t even bite it–honest!
Its been a busy month at work, settling into my house…and catching my breath… I’ve had a lot of change in the last 4months! It seems like I was finally settled in Winnipeg when I moved again… (I was there for 18months)… I really don’t want to move for a LONG time… vacation/trips are ok in my books but moving… no thank you for a long time!!! It seems like time has been flying as I’ve been finding my feet after the adjustment from the move…(it’s already the end of October?!)
I’ve managed to unpack all my belongings, put stuff up on the walls and make my house a home! (I’ll take some photos this weekend and them then!). The only thing I can’t find is the Mac adapter to hook up my MacBook to the TV via an HDMI cord… I’ll have to search one or two more places again, if I can’t find it I might just order a new one!
What else is new? Winter has arrived and I think it’s staying! It’s been snowing off and on all week… I’m ok with this! The other news is the Dark season is setting in…we are loosing 8mins of daylight a day. I must admit, it’s kind of a downer–I have really noticed how it’s affecting me! I think the transition is the hardest… I’m walking home from work after the sun has set (at 5pm)! Once it’s transitioned a bit more, so that it’s more dark–I think I’ll be alright!
In the meantime I have friends and fudge to keep me company… Thanks again Natalie for sharing the recipe on your blog!
(I have a feeling that this new ‘fudge’ addiction might not be so great on my new fitness goals…but that’s a story for another time!)
