Just a reminder, we’ll be out of the kitchen (and out of town, actually) from this Wednesday until early next week, so no special orders during that time. The usual suspects will be stocked up with Fat Bottom treats through the middle of this week though, so go get some to tide you over until we’re back Tuesday the 28th!
Also in the interest of tiding you over, I thought I’d share my super-rich vegan fudge recipe (which will be one of the recipes in my upcoming cookbook!). We don’t post a lot of recipes here on the blog, and this is actually not something that FBB sells (though we could start– what do you think?), but it is what I’m making to give to some of my family members and friends for the holidays. Because, who doesn’t love fudge? Also, it’s legit and I guarantee you won’t have one recipient tell you it tastes “vegan”.
So here you go:
Chocolate Walnut Fudge
½ C vegan chocolate chips
6 Tb margarine (like Earth Balance)
3 C powdered sugar
½ C cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
½ C soymilk
1 C chopped walnuts (optional, but unless you’re allergic you probably want them!)
Grease a 5” x 9” pan with margarine or oil.
In a sauce pan, melt the margarine over low-medium heat and stir in the soymilk. Slowly mix the chocolate chips (a little at a time!), stirring constantly until melted. Stir in all other ingredients except the walnuts, and mix until thoroughly combined and smooth. Remove from heat and quickly mix in the walnuts, then pour into your greased pan. Smooth into an even layer of fudgey deliciousness.
Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour to solidify, but preferably several hours or overnight. Cut into modestly-sized squares (it’s rich!) and serve.
Now go enjoy some fudge and a glass of sparkling cider/champagne/kombucha (I don’t know! However you roll) and we’ll see you in the new year!
Or maybe next week. We’ll see if we’re not too drained after our extremely taxing once-in-a-lifetime vacation (ha-ha) to write one last 2k10 blog post. Either way, have fun and be safe ’til then! Cheers!
P.S. I am sorry for being the type of nerd who would put this picture at the end of a “holiday” post, but hey, what are you gonna do. You can blame me and not Carolynn for this. Anyway, it tied the champagne/sparkling cider reference right in, don’t you think?
