Chocolate Gooooodness!

Here's a GREAT fudge recipe for Valentines Day. Pay no attention to the picture, I just grabbed the nearest paper, which happened to be a food magazine to copy this recipe from the Barefoot Contessa show.  Can't read it? Okay, okay.

Cinnamon Chocolate Fudge

1 Can of Condensed Milk
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
2 1/2 Cups Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
3 Tablespoons Butter
1 Teaspoon Vanilla

Combine and melt over low heat, then add the vanilla. Pour into parchment paper lined pan. (Optional-sprinkle lightly with kosher salt flakes.) Put in refrigerator to set-oh about 20 minutes or so depending on how thick the layer was poured.

That it! Easy Peasy and sooo good! You could even cut the shapes into hearts with a small cookie cutter.

Now I had never made fudge with cinnamon or salt and it was delish! But I'd only put salt on part of it in case you don't like it. AND leave it out of the frig once it's set, in an air-tight container. Otherwise the salt will turn to liquid. Trust me, I know.

"O taste and see that the Lord is good; how blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him." Psalm 34:8

If once you try the Lord, you'll see He is good. And there's no other fudge refuge like Him. Trust me I know.

That is one of my favorite psalms, and the one that I forget the most...thanks for the beautiful reminder and food for thought.
Have a great day

Sounds interesting. We make peanut butter fudge and it never makes it to the fridge!!
