Chocolate chip cookies? Yum! Double chocolate chip cookies? Even better! Those mini candy bars that Aiden got for Halloween? Don't worry. He prefers Skittles and lollipops. That bag of Oreos that I just bought at the store? Oh, sorry. You wanted one? Um, they're already gone. Chocolate fudge? I can eat half a pan before it starts to make me queasy. I could go on...
BUT white chocolate? No thanks! When I think of chocolate this variety never comes to mind. But I really didn't know that I disliked it until tonight.
Aiden and I made cookies and cream fudge today. Matt really liked it when someone brought it to a Christmas party a couple of years ago and I wanted to surprise him by making some. And it was SO easy!
18oz white chocolate chips, 1 can Eagle Brand milk, 20 Oreo cookies, and 1/8 tsp salt.
He just jumped back but didn't say anything. I asked him why he threw the can in the pan. And he said, "I got burned." It wasn't a bad burn, but I still felt terrible about it. He said, "I will have to wait until I get bigger to help around the stove. Then I can be more careful." I let him run his finger under some cool water and then he asked to help with the cookies.
When we picked the Oreos up at the store I told Aiden that he could have a couple of them after dinner. But when he saw me breaking up the cookies for the fudge, he started crying because I was "ruining them". Oreos are the one chocolate thing that he likes just as much as his mommy! I had to show him that I didn't use the entire package before he would calm down.
Anyway. After everything was melted and the cookies were stirred in, I poured the mixture into a pan and put it in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
I then removed the fudge from the pan and cut it into small pieces.
I was so excited to try it! And then after the first bite. Eh... Just not into it. I won't be eating any more of it. In fact, I don't care if I ever have another bite of white chocolate ever again. But those leftover Oreos? Oh yeah. They are long gone!
And now it's time for me to do my workout... (60 walking lunges touching knee to floor, 50 situps. Repeat 5 times as quickly as possible. If you wanted to know!)
