Fudge! Fudge! Fudge!
When I asked my Twitter friends if I should make a homemade fudge recipe the other night, everyone said, “Yes,” and almost every one of them used exclamation points. For example, Twitter user Loverazor said, “fudge! fudge! fudge!” and Twitter user FNCrazy said, “FUDGE!!!!!” Yes, I counted the 6 exclamation points.
My Facebook friends got in on the act, too. There was only one person who dared to talk down to the mighty fudge. Bill from STLBites said, “I hate fudge. It’s on the list.” It should be noted that he didn’t try mine.
Me and Fudge
When I think of fudge, I think of the fudge show at St. Louis Union Station.
Jonathan thinks of the fudge show, too. He thought he was going to come home to a nightmare of a mess in our kitchen. However, it turns out that making fudge is really easy! It took all of 10 minutes to prepare! You then need to have some patience and wait for 3 hours or so for it to harden before eating it up.
The Fudge Recipe
I got the fudge recipe from Joy of Baking. The main change that I made to the recipe was to add balsamic vinegar. I love the combination of balsamic and chocolate. I just recently had a fantastic chocolate balsamic truffle at the Vosges store in Chicago.
What Cupcake is Coming Up?
Why, fudge brownie cupcakes with fudge frosting, of course!
