Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

I Dare You to Just Eat One

My addiction to Google Reader has really started to pay off. Last year I won a box of Häagen-Dazs reserve ice cream from Serious Eats. Then, last week I submitted a caption for the weekly “Insert Caption” contest over at Cinematical and picked up a special 10th Anniversary addition of one of my favorite movies, “You’ve Got Mail.” When I grow up I still want to be Meg Ryan’s character in that film. And my latest lucky score was to be first in line to try a jar of Blake Killian’s versatile and delicious Peanut Butter Dulce de Leche.

As soon as I tasted my first tentative spoonful I knew I was in trouble. This creamy sticky concoction could not be allowed to stay in my house! My thighs were not safe in its presence. Then I got an idea…(please excuse me while I channel Dr. Suess and The Grinch)…an awful idea. Erin got a wonderful, awful idea. What if I made a batch of peanut butter fudge, but not just any fudge. This fudge tastes exactly like the inside of a Peanut Butter Buckeye (or Bon Bon — whatever you call them). Then, what if I heated Blake’s Dulce de Leche and spread it over the top of the fudge? I just couldn’t pass up this unique opportunity. It was of course promptly packed up, and quickly gobbled up by the people in my office. Thanks Blake!

Thanks Blake!

My random thoughts:

-Can I just say that your blog has been FULL of so many yummy-yummy things this week!! It’s KILLING ME! I want to make them all, eat them all, and gain 50 pounds. Okay, actually, I’d love to leave off the whole gain 50 pounds part and just enjoy all the goodies.

-Totally enjoying all your references! Laughed out loud at the Grinch line!! Fantastic! And can I just say that I would be the happiest lady around if I could be Meg Ryan’s character from “You’ve Got Mail” – oh to have my own little Shop Around the Corner.

-Peanut Butter Fudge and Buckeyes are my WEAKNESS!! I have a slight tendency to overeat that stuff. : ) I only allow myself Buckeyes at Christmas when my aunt-in-law (is that a word?) makes them for me. Let’s just say, my husband doesn’t get any of them and they disappear WAY too fast.

-That recipe makes me weep with happiness…what a wonderfully, awful idea. ; )

Okay, I’m done writing my novella. Have a great weekend!
