Sweet Sweet Fudge

Thanks for the lovely comments on my pinwheel pot holder - although, I feel a fraud accepting them, as all I did was copy someone else's genius creativity!

Last Sunday I felt the uncontrollable urge to make some fudge... so I did.  This was amidst the Lumberjack and I trying to prise up old lino tiles from our hall way...

That wasn't a fun job - those tiles have been down a hell of a long time, and a lot of them didn't want to come up!  Sometimes you've just got to stop everything and make fudge.

The Lumberjack just looked at that photo and said that they look like lumps of lard!!!  Nasty boy!  I used this simple recipe.  To be honest, I don't really know what I'm doing when it comes to fudge - looking back at the picture on the recipe it seems they should be darker in colour.  Maybe I didn't heat it for long enough.  I don't have a thermometer, and didn't quite know what I was doing with the 'soft-ball test'.

They were a bit too sweet for the Lumberjack, but that concept doesn't exist in my world!  They are very sweet, and I think they'd be the sort of thing that most people would say that they couldn't eat too much off.  However, I couldn't stop eating it once I'd had a bite, it was shameful.

I'll hopefully be back soon to show you some pictures of the home decoration work that's been going on!


  1. We got some sea salt fudge on our treassure hunt holiday - lovely! Never made any fudge myself though, looks very yummy! And so pretty with the pinwheel... Looking forward to see the "after"-pictures in your hallway! Are you having a runner up the stairs? xx

  2. I used to make fudge this way, but no more. Now the only recipie I use is Lorraine Pascalls Chocolate Marshmallow Fudge. It is done well within 30 mins (none of this boiling for ages malarky) and is more gooey and soft than soft and sugary. Looks like that lino was a real pain.Looking forward to your 'after; pics. :o)

  3. What does the lumberjack know!! I bet that he ate it anyway!!! I hope that you have managed to get the tiles all up, jobs like that are such hard work aren't they. xx

  4. LOL!! I bet the lumberjack certainly got through his fair share of 'lard'. Those tiles are made in hell. We had them and in the end we just had the floor leveled as they were NOT coming up for love or money hahaha.. They were certainly made to last!!

  5. The fudge looks amazing - I have a totally sweet tooth, too, I'd probably be just as happy eating the melted stage of fudge before it even sets...looking forward to seeing the new floor, so far all of your DIY projects have been outstanding!!! Chrissie x

  6. You're fudge looks beautiful Maria, don't mind Lumberjack. You can bring all your fudge over to me and I will appreciate it every ounce of it with my face. And what a perfect way to balance all those calories burned off tearing up flooring tiles. Well played.

    xx A
