Kid Friendly Idea

Okay... so I TOTALLY stole this idea from Frugal Finds From A Frugal Friend .

I got so excited because I could see it being done... remember the recipe for the single serving chocolate cake made in a coffee mug - in the microwave? (It went round and round in emails and blogs.)

This is similar - only it is fudge - single serving - no cooking...

Armpit Fudge
Ingredients for a single serve version:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp butter
2 tsp cream cheese
dash of vanilla
2 tsp cocoa
Place all ingredients in a ziploc bag. Squeeze out all the air. Squish and smoosh (under the arm) the bag until all the ingredients are well mixed with a creamy consistency. Eat.

I would think that it would be a fun thing to do at a spend the night party.... or any kid party or adult party. (I don't really think the adults would appreciate the armpit part, though)

I would also add some chopped nuts just because I'm a real nut fan.

But just think... you can make this in a short time and not even have to mess up anything and there won't be any left over to call your name in the middle of the night!

If only I had had this recipe 36 years ago! When we were first married my sweet hugsum would wake up in the middle of the night, snuggle up close and whisper into my ear, "FUDGE!"

We would get up (yes in the middle of the night) and get dressed, go to the store and get the milk and sugar and whatever else we needed and make fudge.... YES, in the middle of the night! We would eat ourselves silly. We were happy, we were in love.... we were CRAZY!

It amazes me how creative people can be. I'm going to pass this along to the small group leaders who have kids in their homes each week. The middle schoolers would love this!

I can't believe you guys went out for fudge in the middle of the night! Even when I was young I was old.
