Oh Fudge!

Homemade Fudge

One of my favorite Christmas memories is helping my grandpa make fudge. Throughout the year, he’d find good deals on gigantic Hershey bars (back when they were good), bags of chocolate chips and mini marshmallows and keep them stored in his chest freezer (oh how we kids eyeballed those chocolate bars).

He’d make huge batches to give away to friends and family, and if we were lucky enough to be there that weekend then we got to help. Read More

Chocolate Almond Toffee

Chocolate Almond Toffee

There is a holiday for everything, especially when it comes to food. And believe it or not, today’s is the delicious but somewhat obscure “National Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds Day.” Yep, really.

I can’t find any info on the “holiday” aside from the fact that it was probably dreamed up by a confectioner. But do we really need an official reason to eat dark chocolate and almonds? No, we don’t. Read More

TWD: Peanuttiest Blondies

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie is Peanuttiest Blondies, chosen by Nicole of Bakeologie.

I had to race to get this one done and photographed since things around here are pretty busy (aren’t they always this time of year?).

These peanut butter blondies are delicious, and really easy to put together. Oddly enough, they called for cinnamon, which I’m still not 100% sure about taste-wise, but no one is complaining so I’ll just keep that to myself.

Overall, these are a definite hit!
