Hi, I'm little dog. My mommy writes The Candy Coated Mystery series and based the character Mal on me. I'm not certain how I feel about that. It means Mal is more famous than me and I'm not certain if I like that too much. Personally, I think there should be a little dog series, but that's just me.
And what is with the fudge? Dogs can't eat chocolate. My mommy says that dogs can eat white chocolate so I can have a tiny piece of white fudge with sprinkles. Personally, I prefer pink fudge. Pink is my favorite color.
We just had the fourth of July happen. It's the time when humans celebrate with loud scary noises. Why do they do that? The noises make them oooh and ahhhh. Humans are very strange. I think Mal will agree with me on that. Recently I've met a couple of cats named Bailey and Clemson. For the most part they are okay for cats. Mal has a new cat friend as well. Her name is Carmella. So Mal and I are learning that cats are an okay sort just a little moody. Mommy says enough about me. Here is a white chocolate fudge recipe with sprinkles to help you celebrate summer now that the booming has stopped.
Easy White Chocolate Fudge
1/4 cup melted butter
1 (14oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
3 cups of white chocolate chips- be sure you use real white chocolate many of the white chocolate chips on the market today aren't really made with cocoa butter. These will do in a pinch but the flavor is not the same.
1/8 tsp of almond extract
Red white and blue sprinkles or stars to taste
Place melted butter, sweetened condensed milk and chocolate in a microwavable bowl. Cook on high no more than 3-5 minutes. Check regularly as all you want is for the chocolate to melt- sometimes the chips will hold their shape so remove every 30 seconds and stir. Once it's all melted, stir in almond extract. Pour into an 8x8 inch pan that has been lined with foil and buttered. Add sprinkles to the top. Refrigerate until set. Cut into 1 inch pieces and enjoy!
Leave a comment if you have a pet who likes the weird booming noises or if your pet agrees with me that it isn't that much fun to ooh and aaah. Also pick up "Oh Say Can You Fudge" the 3rd in the Candy Coated series from Kensington for a fun July read at a bookstore near you.
