Celebrate National Fudge Day
June 12, 2009
In case it wasn't quite marked down on your calendar, June 26 is National Fudge Day and it's a great opportunity to bring the family together for a few fun, recession-busting activities.
June 26 falls on a Friday this year, making it the perfect opportunity to invite over some local friends and their kids for a fudge-making party.
Fudge is very easy to make, as most varieties involve milk, butter, sugar and chocolate with a range of flavors and complementary ingredients. Most fudge can chill in the fridge to set, so kids won't stay up too late waiting for it to bake.
A good way to let guests make whatever fudge they choose is to give each person a small pan and supply modifiers to let guests personalize desserts.
Peanut butter fudge is simple and very tasty, plus, you can encourage the kids to add their favorite candies to the mix. Adults might want to add a splash of liqueur to give the fudge a decadent flavor.
To offset the sweet treats, it might be a good idea to serve salty snacks, like mixed nuts, or veggies and a healthy dip so guests don't eat too much sugar during the evening.
