This week I have been picking a few items of my 101 in 1001 list to try and tackle before bub arrives. I figure if I can smash out a few items before her arrival it won't matter as much that I don't cross anything off for those first couple of months.
The first item I decided to knock off was #21 - make homemade fudge. I found this recipe and thought it sounded nice. I had a delicious fairy bread fudge when we were in Noosa and I was hoping this would achieve a similar taste. Unfortunately it didn't but it was still delicious!
I did make one slight adjustment to this recipe by leaving out the almond essence. I find the taste of almond essence way too overpowering and I am not a fan so I opted to leave this out. I am so happy with how this fudge turned out. It was a lot easier than I expected it to be. I am finding with a lot of things that I have always put off making because they looked or sounded difficult that it is all a matter of perception. So far things have been going pretty well with my baking adventures.
