I had to fudge a bit on my diet over the weekend. I did real good about not eating pie on Thanksgiving Day but . . the fudge! It seems to be one of the first candies I make during the Christmas season. At least I’m only drinking a few Dr. Peppers. I have 2 or 3 of them a week. I am not a big chocolate fan but I love the fudge my mom always made. The best part was that little ball in the ice water. I could eat the entire pan of fudge, one gooey, cold ball at a time!
Mom always had a small platter that she would butter and pour the fudge into. She could get hers to pour out real thin and when she cut it, it would just melt in your mouth. Mom uses the Hershey’s recipe that is sometimes on the Hershey’s cocoa can but is here also. I usually put a few chopped pecans in it but since we had just bought cashews, I added those this time.
This plate of fudge didn’t last long. Some of it went back to school with Chad . . too much of it was consumed by me. The holidays are not a great time to try to lose weight!
What’s your favorite holiday candy?
