My grandma and my mom always made the chocolate fudge recipe on the outside of the Hershey’s container. It’s Rich Cocoa Fudge and even though it’s chocolate, and very chocolate .. I love it. I’m not sure if it’s the memories of making it with those I loved for so many years, of if it’s the actual fudge that I love.
The best part for me are those “soft balls” in the ice water. I would dump that whole pan in a pitcher of ice water and eat it with a spoon except for that tiny bit of self control that says NO!
My mom always had an elongated small white platter that she would butter and pour her fudge into. I wonder if she still has that dish. I would love to have it.
Addie said she had never had the “soft balls” in ice water so last night we made fudge.
I seriously considered googling “how long til sugar high wears off”. She was crazy for a while. I sent her to take a bath, knowing she’d play in the tub for a long time and that did seem to help but I’m not sure she and I will make fudge together again for a very long time.
Today she wants to make cookies. We may need a no sugar day but if we don’t do it today, it will be after Thanksgiving before we have time and I’m not sure if Chad and Nicole are taking her home with them after Thanksgiving or leaving her here through the weekend. I guess we should try to make the cookies today.
