Every day when I wake up I begin scanning our yard for signs of life. Finally in the past few days flowers have begun peeking out of the ground. The grass gets a little bit greener every day. Birds are starting to return to the land of the no-longer frozen.Read More

I will be ending my string of Christmas treats with my three favorites. I've been saving the best for last! This fudge is incredible and comes with a warning: If you take a bite, you will not want to stop taking bites. You will need to dig very deep inside of yourself for willpower to stop taking bites. It is so addicting that I have been storing my batch of crack, er...fudge, in the freezer to make it more difficult to graze upon.Read More
The kind people at Swiss Maid Fudge contacted me and asked me if I would like to receive free samples of fudge. In return, I created five delicious recipes including their product. The three flavors they sent to me were peanut butter chocolate marble, milk chocolate and turtle. They were all delicious, of course. I thoroughly enjoyed adding them to other foods, as well as eating them alone.
The first recipe I tried was a Strawberry Fudge-tini. It looked so pretty, and tasted delicious, too. I love the fudge in the bottom of the glass, infusing the vodka.
My Grilled Peppers with Mascarpone and Fudge recipe was an unusual one, but it worked! I knew I wanted to grill fudge atop some sort of vegetable. I chose red bell peppers since they are sweet. The mascarpone cheese and basil added distinct, sweet flavors, as well. Then I added red onion as a contrast to it all. I loved it!
I have a fondness for grilled cheese sandwiches, so when I received the fudge I knew I had to include it somehow in a sandwich. This was fantastic, and by far my favorite of all the fudgy recipes I made. Fudgy Strawberry Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich.
And who doesn't love creamy deliciousness wrapped up in a crescent roll? I placed some cream cheese, along with creamy fudge, into the center of a crescent roll, rolled it up and baked it until it was lightly browned. Fudgy Cream Cheese Rolls. YUM!
And last but not least, S'mores Bars made with graham cracker crumbs, marshmallows and fudge.
These were great in bar form, but I have to say that I may have liked them a tiny bit more crumbled over vanilla ice cream.
Thank you, Swiss Maid Fudge, for this fun opportunity!
I mentioned in one of my recent posts that I have many favorite types of candy. Candy, candy, candy, oh how I love my candy. If you peek inside my mouth you will go, "Ahh, yes, you do, indeed!" I had a dentist growing up who (I believed) took pleasure in my constant need for fillings.Read More
