So this morning I stepped on the scale after a week of non-stop holiday cookie and sweets eating. Oh fudge!!!
Those were not the numbers I was hoping to see. And we still have New Year’s to get through. It’s probably time to slow down on the cookies, the white chocolate peppermint Oreo cake, and fudge consumption.
I did say slow down, not stop if you noticed. I have tried the whole not eat sugar thing before, and it has never lasted very long. So, I’m going to limit myself…severely limit mind you! I may even just taste and not swallow. LOL! Like that’s going to happen.
There is a chance I might need to take some time away from baking because the scale keeps going up.
Stop laughing!!! That wasn’t supposed to be so funny! Ok, fine. If you have been reading this blog for any length of time, you know that statement was freaking hilarious! I bake almost every single day because I love it so much.
No wonder my scale doesn’t like me. Things like these Oreo peppermint crunch cookies always happen this time of year!
Now lucky you, I still have some sweets that I made a while ago and just haven’t shared yet. Like this fudge that is staring at you right now. The answer is yes!! It is as good as it looks!
The swirls in this mint brownie swirl fudge are so pretty. Each bite has the subtle taste of brownies and mint within the white chocolate flavor.
You will be surprised at how creamy this fudge is. The marshmallow cream keeps the fudge from setting up to a hard candy. It is so soft and easy to bite into.
I think this is why I like this fudge so much. Of course, I will never turn down any kind of fudge! You can keep this fudge in a container on the counter for a soft set fudge, or you can keep it in the refrigerator for a harder fudge like texture.
Maybe just one more batch of fudge before I swear off desserts for a while. I have to have some sort of sweet to welcome in the New Year, right?
