Years ago, when we lived in Spring, Texas I especially loved February. Would you believe that winter was over in February and the smell in the air - I will never forget. It was like the Secret Garden....spring had arrived and that meant violets were blooming.
Here in Colorado winter hasn't even really begun yet in February. But that's o.k. because we can "pretend". Thank God for an imagination! I don't think violets bloom here in Colorado until May.
I have arranged a little table by the window for us today as we "imagine" spring in all its glory. I also have something special since Valentine's Day is just around the corner! Fudge - yes and the recipe too! This is so easy and tastes like really expensive chocolate shop type fudge!
Valentines Day Fudge
1 can 14 oz condensed milk
1 pkg 12 oz semisweet chocolate chips
1 Tsp vanilla
1 ½ cups chopped walnuts as desired
Butter a square 8 x 8 x 2 pan. Heat milk, chocolate chips, in 2 quart sauce pan over low heat. Stir constantly till all melted and mix is smooth, remove from heat and stir in vanilla and nuts. Spread quickly in pan and refrigerate until firm. At least 1 hour. Cut into 1 ¼” squares - makes about 3 dozen.
Tea and fudge- what could be better,
so pour yourself a cup of Paris Tea and relax.
