Crumbled Nut Fudge

Pin It
Fudge is fantastic!!!

Now I will admit, there are times when you can turn down fudge, and sometimes even chocoate but there hasn't been a time when I am with my girls for a night out that I have refused. Girl's night out is the perfect time to pull out dirty little treats like this and induldge.

I told you about Paul's bachelor party but what I didnt mention is that I had my girlfriend Julie's bachelorette party the same night. Some of my best girls and I hit the beach all day then drove up to our hotel where we sent the evening gabbing and catching up before dinner while we got ready, had a few cocktails and ate some fudge.

We had one of the best nights including late night pizza, some random pink shots which were probibly unneccissary in the grand scheme of things and of course more fudge.

I actually made, to what I thought, a very large batch for a group of about 10 girls however we definatly cleaned through atleast half the batch before morning and then of course the rest went to the boys morning after hangover party.

All-in-all this is the easiest recipe to throw together, let cool for a while and when you are ready to go... so is this fudge. Soft, chewey and full of nutty toffee goodness that you will absolutely grab another.

Nut up and grab some fudge!!

@A healthy Jalapeno: I can't ever, EVER turn down any recipe with chocolate in it.

@ Dee: Alright, we'll be real quiet about that :D
