Peanut Butter Fudge And Happy Birthday To Me!

Posted By Alina On February 1, 2011 @ 21:58 In Uncategorized | 24 Comments

You know what? I love presents. I received so many presents for my birthday on Sunday and I’m so happy. And astonished. I’m astonished to be 27. It seems like this is happening to someone else. I just can’t be 27. Ahh!!!

So, I got some beautiful clothes that match each other…

…and some new spring flowers in pots…

… and lots of other things including two books on art from my Mom, funky muffin liners from Grandmother and a bag of syrups and herbs from Stano.

Stano helped me to make three kinds of pizza for the guests (we pretended that we owned a mini pizzeria for a moment… or that we were Sybil and Basil from the Fawlty Towers, haha) and I baked a chocolate cake with cream cheese filling based on this recipe [1]- I doubled all ingredients and made a two-layer cake decorated with cocoa buttercream. I also made some Lemon Polenta cookies [2] and I made Peanut Butter Fudge [3]. Look at the picture and guess how many ingredients this recipe uses…

The answer is two!! This superb, rich, addictive, yet absolutely no-stress sweet is made with just two ingredients: peanut butter and vanilla frosting. I didn’t know what vanilla frosting was before, but Jenny of Vintage Sugarcube [4] sent me a tub so I could make the fudge!! The fudge is delicious and smooth, and of course everyone thought I had spent hours in the kitchen… while it took me 5 minutes to whip it up plus wash the saucepan I used to warm the ingredients. 5 minutes, 2 ingredients, and lots of compliments from guests. Thank you a ton Jenny! I have only used 1/2 of the tub so far because I’m going to extend the pleasure ;-)

And I’ve just looked at our blog and I see it’s somewhat overloaded with sweet treats. So I promise I will cook something savoury and Eastern European next time. I’m not sure yet what it will be though. See you!
