Velociraptors

December 3, 2011

Ok, for the past few days there has been nothing sweet in my house (which is rare). When you need sweet, you just need it. Especially when you can’t even have a quiet moment to yourself taking a shower. Last night there were 5 different knocks on the door. Each time the owner of the tiny little knuckles that tapped so politely would ask in a tone gentle & questioning with just a pinch of feigned surprise, “What are you doing? ”  “I need to brush my teeth, can I come in?”  “I need to pee, when will you be done?” There is another bathroom where all of this could take place. The best one was, “I want to take a hot bath, are you almost done?” 

It’s hard for these little people to learn that you are a whole person which includes parts of yourself that are not always involved in everything that they are doing. So, for the sake of being random & indulgent, I like this quick easy recipe for homemade fudge that can be wrapped in enough foil, and placed far back enough in the refrigerator so the little velociraptors don’t get it.  Hide this fudge. Its yours. Yes you could work out or go to yoga or meditate, blah, blah, blah. It’s all wonderful stuff & we should do those things. But sometimes, quick & easy fudge is the answer: Recipe adapted from, The Compassionate Cook.

Now this is coming from a vegan cookbook, so feel free to ‘compassion it up’ or substitute butter & heavy cream : )

  • 6 tablespoons margarine~or BUTTER
  • 3 1/2 cups sifted confectionary sugar
  • 1/2 cup sifted cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup soy milk~or HEAVY CREAM
  • pinch of sea salt

Melt the butter in the top of a double boiler then add the cream, vanilla & pinch of salt. Add the sugar & cocoa & stir until smooth. Pour onto a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. Cover & refrigerate until firm, about an hour. 

Love yourself, be good to yourself and induldge in fudge whenever. No regrets ; )
