The Watermelon Radish

The Watermelon Radish
A Kid's Point of Food

Saturday, November 20, 2010


Every year around Christmas time my mom starts to make the perfect blend of sugar, chocolate and holiday spirit. This food is her famous fudge, a delicacy that can soften even the grouchiest neighbors heart! This time I was out of school on holiday, so I helped make the first batch. There is one ingredient that I do not like at all, and that is chocolate. Our families secret recipe makes the chocolate taste very good and that is thanks to all the other ingredients.

There is Carnation Evaporated Milk, butter, vanilla and sugar(lots of it!). Sometimes we even add walnuts to make it taste better. Baking fudge is all about the time on the stove, even a few seconds can make or break a block of fudge. I love to stir the mixture and watch all the gooey chocolate become visible. One of my favorite parts are when we pour it into the baking trays and either me or my dad gets to lick the spoon. My other favorite part is the taste test at the end! The only hard part is we make over 25 boxes of it!

a sweet good-bye to all!
