That stuff is good! I like the dark with chili peppers too.

This Sweet Poppovers with Reduced Cream and Pears

They were so good.

Gulty Pleasure - Maple-Hazlenut Fudge

Fro last Sunday's church potluck, I used this recipe - Creamy Maple Fudge - Eagle Brand but modified it like this.

I substituted an extra 1/4 cup of brown sugar for half of the maple syrup (didn't want to use up all my maple syrup on food for a pot luck. I'm kind of stingy with it.) I added a half tsp. of maple extract to add the missing maple flavor. I also added a half cup of milk to the recipe to replace the missing liquid. And just because I am the guy who has to experiment, I added a quarter tsp. of hazelnut extract to the recipe.

I followed the directions for cooking the fudge, adding the milk half way through the cooking process. Mixed two heaping handfuls of chopped pecans to the fudge, and poured into a parchment paper lined cake pan.

Cover, refrigerate, and wait for the compliments. This stuff is right up there with the See's Fudge recipe for flavor and texture quality. Yeh, it came out really good. And just for the record, See's fudge recipe is a wonderful fudge recipe.

OhMyGoodness.....such guilty, guilty pleasures here. I've never tried the chocolate with chili peppers seems like an odd combination but next time I see them I will for sure give it a try.

Do love the hazelnut fudge combo....oy.

They are currently advertising Lindor in bar form over here.

Now that Cadburys belongs to Kraft there are some very weird varieties of Cadbury's Dairy Milk bars coming onto the market.
