Meditation 12.15.18

A pen and ink doodle meditation in greens and my recipe for fudge.
Dear Henry,

I made fudge for the first time in years.  

I used to make it all of the time, but then, I grew up and got busy.

You hear horror stories about fudge, about how challenging it is to make, and because it had been so long since I had made it, I was concerned.

Turned out, I didn't need to be.  My recipe still works and turned out beautifully.

It is:

2 C. Brown Sugar
1 C. White Sugar
1 C. Whole Milk
1 TBSP. Butter
1 Tsp. Vanilla
4 oz Unsweetened Chocolate
1 C. Walnuts

In a heavy saucepan mix the sugars, milk, and butter over medium heat until it begins to boil. Then stop stirring and allow it to cook until soft ball stage (about 238 F)  - Don't stir.  It is tempting.

Remove pan from heat and allow it to rest for 15 min.

Break up and melt the chocolate.  Add chocolate, vanilla, and walnuts to the sugar mixture and beat until starts turning creamy.

Turn into a buttered dish and let cool.

xoxo a.d.
