ABC Wednesday - F is for Fudge

F is for Fudge.............

a plate of homemade chocolate fudge

Creamy, homemade chocolate fudge with walnuts - it melts in your mouth and leaves you wanting another piece.

My aunt used to make this sweet treat when I was a young girl, and I was hooked from my first bite.

I made it for the first time when I was 13, and I was so nervous I was going to end up with soup, but she kept assuring me if I followed the directions exactly, it would turn out perfect.

She was right of course, and I can't tell you how many batches of this I have made over my lifetime.

Just at Christmas time alone, I make about half a dozen batches. And that doesn't include the peanut butter fudge, caramels, toffee, or sugared pecans.

All I have to offer you my friends is a virtual piece - but rest assured it tastes as good as it looks!


This is the third round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.

  16. Okay Kathy it is two o'clock in the morning, and I really need to see this fudge, lol. You know I been breastfeeding so I am not allowed to eat chocolate, something to do with digestive baby's enzymes being not available yet. I have such cravings lately, and this picture did it, lol. However, kidding aside, this is my all time favorite pic of yours. Anna :)

  17. Oh Anna - I am so sorry for the temptations. I remember being in the same situation - chocolate didn't sit well with the babies even when I was pregnant. We all make up for it now though!
