This has been my favorite fudge recipe since I was young. It’s super easy and taste yummy. Have you every eaten the fudge when it was still hot and liquid? You are going to want to drink this like it was Heavenly Hot Chocolate.
¼ cup milk
1 stick butter
Few grains of salt
1 tbsp. vanilla
1 box confectioners sugar
1 cup nutmeat (optional) I don’t put in the nuts, because we don’t like them.
Heat first 4 ingredients in medium saucepan just heat to boiling point; remove immediately from heat. Add sugar and cocoa; beat until smooth and glossy. Add nutmeat (optional); mix well. Pour into 8 inch square pan; place in freezer for 20 minutes. Cut into pieces to serve.
Approx. 30 servings.
This is one of my favorite inspirational quotes.
I also added a video at the end with the quote in it.
“Our Deepest Fear”
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD.
Your playing small does not serve the world …
We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
We unconscilously give other people
Permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.”
from Marianne Williamson’s book A Return to Love
Christmas 2014 was engulfed by a Polar Vortex, and snow, it was even to cold to venture outdoors. So one cold winter afternoon, we took down the carousel I had gotten the Christmas before so the kids could watch it. The older boys weren’t so interested but Christian was mystified by the music and lights. He was pointing to all the beautiful ponies going round and round, up and down. He was talking to the horse’s wanting them to stop so he could have a ride.
He’s just too cute. It’s so special to experience the world with a toddler, everything is amazing. Except vegetables!
