It’s time again for my entry in the Crazy Cooking Challenge which is hosted each month by Tina of Moms Crazy Cooking. Each month she challenges participating bloggers to search non-celebrity blogs looking for the ultimate recipe of the month and then to make and feature that recipe and the blog where we found it. The first month we were challenged to find the ultimate mac & cheese recipe and I made a delicious Velvety Mac & Cheese. The second month the challenge was chocolate chip cookies and for me, my ultimate was Chocolate Chip Gingersnaps and then last month it was a search for the ultimate mashed potatoes and I made some fabulous Aloo Tikki. Each month it’s fun searching out recipes and then on reveal day seeing what everyone found and made.
This month the challenge was to find the ultimate fudge recipe. Trust me, once you start looking there are millions of fabulous looking fudge recipes out there so it was a bit overwhelming trying to narrow down my choices. Generally my first thought when I hear the word fudge is chocolate…but truth be told I’m not a real chocolate fudge lover. I started thinking about other fudge flavors and came to the conclusion that my favorite is penuche because honestly I could eat brown sugar off a spoon and be happy so turning that into fudge, well of course I love it. In my search of penuche recipes I just happened upon Danielle’s blog Hugs & CookiesXOXO and her Biscoff Fudge…OMG! Immediately I knew what I would be making because as luck would have it, I had just days earlier purchased a jar of Biscoff Spread and rather than spreading it on everything and anything that could be used as a vehicle to get it in my mouth or just spoon by spoon eat it from the jar, because it’s that stinking good, I figured why not put it in fudge and enjoy it that way.
I’m telling you, Danielle’s recipe couldn’t be easier or tastier. One bowl, a spoon, five ingredients, a pan and a little wait time so the fudge can set up and it’s pure Biscoff delight. I followed Danielle’s recipe almost exactly, my only change was that I left out the chunks of Biscoff Cookies just because I prefer solid fudge without any crunchy bits or add-ins but I’ll bet it was just as good with the cookie bits mixed in. Eammon, Maisie and I all loved this new, delicious and slightly different fudge and we’ll definitely be indulging in this sweet treat again and again.
For us this Biscoff Fudge was the ultimate fudge recipe and we’d love if you thought so too and in the link of all the entries below if you’d “like” our Biscoff Fudge it would be much appreciated. I hope that you’ll give this recipe a try and then come back and let me know how you liked it. Thanks!
My best little helper Maisie did a great job mixing all the ingredients together.
In a medium bowl, microwave the butter and Biscoff Spread until smooth. Stir in the salt, vanilla and sugar. Press into either a silicon or foil lined pan. Chill in refrigerator until set. Once firm cut into pieces.
