Life is short. Have you ever contemplated that fact? I have always had it in the back of my mind, my mortality lurking there, but recently a few events have made it glaringly obvious. Not that I want to go into all the morbid details, but I really just wanted to share how precious our lives are. How lucky we are to be well, alive and fortunate enough to have all that we do. I really just want you take a second to think about that. About all you have. Not about what you want or what you don't have, just about ALL you DO have - and then be thankful for it. Annnnnd after all that heavy thought, here is what you came for....
So when I cam across this recipe in my latest IDEAS magazine, I was absorbed. I mean that. I could not stop thinking about this fudge. I guess it was the liquid glucose that caught my attention. It's the one ingredient that I have never added to my fudge, and it's the one ingredient that I could imagine giving that super soft and dreamy centre to fudge. So I gave it a try.
And it turned out fantastically. I didn't follow their exact instructions, I cooked it longer then they instructed and I added vanilla bean seeds instead of vanilla essence. Hmmm - come to think of it, I also beat it with my electric hand whisk so that it would be super creamy. And it worked. SO. WELL.
So go and check their fudge out here. I can imagine this would make a really sweet sauce too if you shortened the cooking time. Excuse the pun!
