~ FOODIE FRIDAY FUDGE~

Hey Guys...What time is it ??why its FOODIE FRIDAY TIME does that not sound like something "Howdy Doody " would have sing ...Of course it does...Now our very own Gollum's Host's this Fun Friday for us gals to show off all our cooking skills with, ( don't know why I am here) PLEASE go by and see her and all the FOODIE bunch today...http://designsbygollum.blogspot.com/. Now I am going to share this great 10 minute fudge with you today !!! ( ps. try saying FOODIE FRIDAY 10 times ) Now this is all you need and really it makes the creamiest and best fudge in the world..




See 1 can sweet milk, 1 package of Chocolate chips...chopped nuts (optional ) I just grab a hand full and chop away...


Toss the milk, and chips in a pan...heat on the stove until melted...add nuts after you take it off the heat ...here I used Walnuts...


This is what it will look like... stir it up real good..


Just pour it in a dish...put in frig...for about 2 hours and then cut and eat...and what do you did? Great Fudge that only took 10 minute from start to finish.. Now also at Christmas time I like to add some Peppermint extract while its melting, put some crushed peppermint candies on the top of it..you also can add Lemon, or Orange extract...what ever flavor you want...If you want some YUMMY!! White Fudge use White Chocolate chips instead and add Pecans (again Nuts are optional) It's the best...

Now this says it All...Sassy say please Help yourself...I already had my fill !!!

Postnote: No animals were warned in the making of this production...

Now PLEASE go by and see our Great friend to all in Blogland Gollum and take a fork along with you today...It will make you hungry also check out her give away for the day.

For those that did not leave a comment on my 100 followers GIFT AWAY please go to my last post and do that, so Mr. Random thingy can do his thing on March 8th...Good luck to all of you!!

May you all have a great FOODIE fun filled FRIDAY!! I am grabbing my fork and on my way.

Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Gloria, You are one clever cookie! The fudge looks delicious! I've only attempted fudge once, many years ago, & the sugar didn't melt. UGH. It had to be reheated & kind of turned to caramel. Not a good thing. Wish I'd had your recipe then! ♥

Gollum said...

Oh, I am so making this tomorrow because I am carb starved. My body is CRYING for carbs, and I shall not deny it. LOL This looks so good, and I know Young Bandwith will love it, too.

Susan said...

Oh yum...fudge my favorite! I could live on fudge...but I am watching what I eat...sigh...so can't have any!

Susan

tardevil said...

That looks really good! You made it look soooooooooo easy!

mbkatc230 said...

Wow Gloria, this looks great! And easy enough that I might even be able to manage it lol. Cait is coming home this weekend, so I bet we end up making a TON of it to take back to school, never hurts to have bribes for the grad students lol. Hugs, Kathy

Deb said...

Looks Yummy!

Heather said...

oh my goodness, that is so yummy! and in 10 minutes? yikes! it's getting dangerous around here- you know how to make fudge in 10 minutes, i know how to make a delicious cake in 9 minutes from start to finish! i better start walking more miles! i posted about my 9 minute cake a few posts back, you can check it out if you want, but be careful, it's addicting!

carolinajewel said...

Yum is right! The fudge looks great! :D Jewel

FrenchGardenHouse said...

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

This looks sooooo yummy, indeed!

Cynthia said...

Gloria,
You are like one of my favorite blogging friends! This looks so yummy and I love the idea of adding peppermint! I went back to TJ Maxx today, and I refrained from buying plates,but I did try on clothes and I think I need to shed some winter pounds. I think I need to forgo all kinds of sweets for awhile. Oh, thanks for letting me share, Cindy

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Had to swing back over for abit more fudge..:-) See what I mean girl.. the brain just isn't working right tonight...I got it now.. went back and reread it right this time..lol.. stress and worry ...girl... big time.. another roller coaster ride today..and there's no music to go along with it.. pray girl.. pray..
hugs ~lynne~

xinex said...

Hi Gloria! Since you have given me this recipe before Christmas, I have been making it and it is really good. Thanks again...Christine

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

Fudge- Oh Gloria you're killing me here!! I am trying so hard to eat good hence the asparagus and then I am supposed to pass up this- No way - I just don't have that kind of will power- actually I have not an ounce of will power most of the time!

I am so sad you dislike asparagus and liver!!! I love liver and onions!!!

I wish I had the creativity you do-parsley sage rosemary and thyme- that is too funny!

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

You mean to tell me that it comes out thick and creamy, just making it with those ingredients? What have I been doing all these years with friggin' candy thermometers and all that other shit?

Justine :o )

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Thank heavens it's at your house and not mine because it would be gone in a FLASH! It looks delicious! Cute display of the fudge and tell Sassy "thanks, don't mind if I do!"
Love and hugs,
Mona

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Good Morning, Sweet Gloria!

I think you said it all in one word... YUM! Oh, how I love fudge. My mother used to make it every Christmas, and since she died, I haven't had any I consider yum-worthy. But yours looks every single bit yum-worthy! I might be forced to get out my chocolate and try it! Thanks for sharing with us, Gloria. Sending you lots of love...

XO,

Mag (Sheila) :-)

Chris said...

Now you know I'll be making this, looks so easy and sounds soooo good. Love easy.

Love Ya,

Edie Marie's Attic said...

What a great recipe. It looks so easy too. I have to try it. The only fudge that I have been successful with is peanut butter (no fail) fudge.

Chari said...

Hello Dearheart...

Ohhh my...I just know that I gained a couple of pounds looking at your delicious fudge!!! Girl, I've never tried this recipe and will have to give it a shot! My Grandma passed down her "Old Fashioned Fudge" recipe to me years ago and it's soooo yummy but you have to stand at the stove and cook it...it takes awhile to make! I just loveeeee fudge...ewww, and my hips show it! hehe!!!

Well darlin, what are you up to today? I missed yakkin' at ya yesterday...I was sickly...but I'm okay today! We have to go and get the kids tonight so I hope that I can make the trip alright...I'm wanting to hit Hobby Lobby up there! Yeeeehawww!!!

Just wanted to let you know that I did a post today that included your sweet little teacup lamp...take a peek at it! You'll just never know how much it means to me...I just adore that little lamp and always think of you when I see it! It always brings a smile to my face and a warmth to my heart!!! You know that I love you, Sweetie!!!

Love ya,
Chari

Tootsie said...

looks really yummy....so glad foodie friday is virtual..and not actual...I'd gain all of those 50 lost pounds right back all at once!
I have lots of time to comment today...in bed with pneumonia now! yes...life is quite a crap storm here this week....the kids have bad colds, and they are home too...have you ever tried to make three kids lay down and rest when you are sick too? (of course you have) yea...one is always up...so you don't get to sleep!
on the silverlining of this cloud...no hockey! lol

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

I think the *YUM* looks a little off center....I would be more than happy to help by eating....several, Hmmmm, I mean a few pieces...just to even it out for the picture of course. Who am I foolin it's CHOCOLATE!! Once I got started you'd be lucky to have enough fudge to form one letter let alone three, LOL!

Sweet Wishes

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

It will be for you both to get out!!! Have a blast and I hope you find you plates!! I am trying so very hard to be good and keep my money in my pocket- a friend who finds great linens showed me her wares today and just picked out 1 thing and then asked if she would set another aside and then..... like I said it is so hard!!!

Dena ~ swaddlecottage said...

Yum indeed! I'm in great need of chocolate now. Is 9:30 too early for chocolate? I think not...

Hugs,

Nancy Jane said...

10 minute fudge is right up my alley! At 9PM when stores are closed, it could be a life saver if you're having an uncontrollable sweet craving. As an ex-Girl Scout, I believe in being prepared! Next trip to the store I'm stocking up on "emergency" ingredients.;) Nancy

Jessica said...

YUM is right! I hope you had a great weekend!
