The best part about these is that I see them as totally healthy. Sure, the larger portion of ingredients is white chocolate, but the cranberries and pistachios each come with several health benefits that you just cannot help but feel you are doing yourself a favour by eating several of them!
What better way to start your week than with some delicious and ridiculously easy fudge? Before I came across the recipes from Lisa and Michelle, fudge always seemed a rather daunting prospect that involved thermometers and a whole lot of complicatedness… which, to be fair, it does – that is if you want the super legit stuff. This however is a lot more simple and still just as yum, which makes it a pretty good place to start your fudge making adventures. The best part is that it is entirely up to you what goes in it.
Better yet, you can choose whether you want to use orange for something sweeter, or lemon for something with a bit more of a tang… or you could make both. Like me. Because what is better than having one slice? Why, having two slices of course.
This is a favourite to make because aside from the taste, it leaves a nice, fruity aroma in the kitchen. Orange and coconut = bliss! A new perfume idea, perhaps?
…I know, I should stick to baking and not perfumery. (Note: 1 cup = 1 US cup)
These were initially made with someone special in mind however they have always been a childhood favourite of mine. Although, given their alcoholic content, I am not so sure that I should be admitting that… let us just keep that one on the downlow. Although you would need to eat a rather large quantity to feel any effect… and no, that is not a challenge!
These can be made with whichever alcohol you prefer or happen to have around, whether it be whiskey, rum, or bourbon. Or you can omit the alcohol for a virgin version.
This cake is a perfect treat during summer when fresh and delicious strawberries are readily available. It is almost mousse like in texture and when served chilled, makes for the perfect dessert after a long, hot day.
However, do note that the filling contains raw egg whites so if you just so happen to have a little bun in the oven, I would probably avoid this one. If you are healthy, bun free and can mentally get past the raw egg whites, there is nothing holding you back. This is a very sweet cake and well worth the effort. (Note: 1 cup = 1 US cup)
