I have to admit, I was never much of a German Chocolate fan growing up. Now that I’ve aged a little (and seen the error of my ways) I LOVE it.
I made our German Chocolate Cake Cookies, and decided I wanted to use the delicious topping for some simple chocolate fudge, and it was a HUGE hit.
If you are looking for a little recipe shortcut, I have the perfect one for you.
I love german chocolate, however, I don’t always have time to make the coconut topping.
But, have you ever tried the german chocolate canned frosting? It is actually really delicious. I am not much for canned frosting, however, it was delicious.
I could eat it by the spoonful. So if you are looking for an easy shortcut to this recipe, use the canned german chocolate frosting, instead of making your own.
Our family fudge tradition:
My favorite holiday, is the day before every holiday. I love the eve of pretty much every major holiday.
I love all the excitement in the air, everyone being together, and the celebration of something joyful and exciting.
Not to mention the best part of the celebration, the food.
My family is all about the holiday food. If there is a holiday or get together, there is a potluck and prepare to get a belly ache, because we don’t do small.
Growing up, I always loved Christmas Eve and New Years Eve because it was the one time of year my mom made fudge. I love fudge.
She would make a few flavors, as well as some other treats, and we would all eat them and spend time together as a family. It was my most favorite thing.
All my sisters and I would sit at the counter, watch her cook the food for that evening (and taste test of course) then enjoy it later that night as we played games and watched movies.
Now every time I taste fudge, it brings me back to the good old days of eating fudge and not worrying about a thing.
I hope to carry the fudge tradition on with my future family.
