Friday’s quick ideas for the week end # 6 Fudge

Blue Flowers in a pink vase (Flickr colors:) I always love Fridays. Friday means the last effort of the week. No matter what you do or how harder was your week you always know that looking forward is always comforting know that at last you can rest. No matter if your week end is busy, the important is that in these days with can spent time with your family, had fun with your children. fudge When I had 14 or 15 years old my mom and my dad invariably on wee ends leave home at 9:00 am to shop some food, they loved to stop in a kind of Sao Paulo’s little Italy and take some hot Italian style bread. Obviously, as a single I lived with my parents in a two floor house, from my room window I can herd when my father started the car. My room had a balcony and I pull out the bed and shouted to my dad. _ Hey Dad!! Wait for me; I want to go with you. No, no, my mom asked – You late. If you really want to go with us, you must wake up earlier. What did you want? - Oh! I don’t know something sweet. At these times my favorite phrase was I don’t know. Because, I actually ever know nothing Thanks God today I know exactly what I want Sometimes they brought me sfogliatella, sometime juicy fruits, and sometime a very special treat. Fudge A kind milk fudge, harden outside and creamy on the inside. Delicious! So, I am getting homesick and for this week end I craving for fudge, I usually made with the traditional way. With sugar, butter, water and cocoa, but before I discover that exist many easier ways to prepare it. I change for the most practical. Sometimes the simplest recipes yield the richest results There’s nothing quite as delectable as a slab of creamy, rich chocolate fudge. Can you resist to these chocolate squares? Me neither Fudge in a box Ingredients
  • 1 can sweet condensed milk
  • 120 g milk chocolate
  • 120g semi sweet dark chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon almond extract
  • Dash of salt
  • 50g almonds coarsely chopped
Method Spray an pan lightly with oil. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper. Press it down gently so it sticks. Set the pan aside. Start an improvised double boiler. Put water in a pan on the stove over high heat to get it boiling Chop up the chocolate into small pieces and .add the dash of salt Pour in the condensed milk., and toss in the almond extract Drop the heat to low. Set your mixing bowl on top of the pot of water. Stir constantly the mixture When the chocolate has just melted and the mixture is fairly smooth, remove the bowl from the heat. Stir a little more The mixture will be really thick and creamy Toss in the chopped nuts. Pour the fudge out into your prepared pan. Set it in the fridge for a few hours until it firms up.
