Ruined Fudge Fix

Money Saving Tip of the Month (featured column)

My tip has to do with what to do when your fudge is ruined!

*  *  *

This year I made my annual holiday candies, however, my fudge did NOT turn out. It was dry and crumbly. I was devastated. I hate to use expensive ingredients and then not have anything to show for it.

Well, as I was thinking about what I could use this crumbly fudge for, my daughter asked for some hot chocolate. A light bulb went off in my head.

I took two pieces of the crumbly fudge and smashed them to a powder using my fingers. Then I heated up some milk on the stove, stirred in the fudge powder and mixed it up until, voila, instant hot chocolate. It was delicious!

I put the rest of the fudge in the food processor and ground it all into a fine powder. Then I put the powder in a glass jar and stored it in the refrigerator. Now we can have the most delicious hot chocolate on a whim.

My family calls it liquid fudge, and everyone, not just the children, love it!
