Baked Fudge and a #Giveaway for my 3 Year Bloggy Birthday

Simple, classic, and chock full of chocolatey goodness. Your family is going to love this! Bake them in tiny mason jars so everyone gets their own jar of happiness!

Baked Fudge | Simple, classic, and chock full of chocolatey goodness. Your family is going to love this one!

Some recipes need to be shared. They need to be savoured, and enjoyed by everyone.

Then there are recipes, like this one, where you hide in the closet with the entire batch so you don’t have to share.

Not that anyone here did that.

I would never.

Okay, so I totally did it.

I don’t even care. It was totally worth it.

Sharing is good karma. Today I’m giving away good karma. Or rather an Amazon Gift Card. But sorta karma too.

Today is my 3 year bloggy birthday. And I have to admit I’m backdating this post to get it up on the right day.

Why?

Omg, because I’ve been watching The Walking Dead compulsively and didn’t realize days were passing so quickly. I’m an addict, people. I need help immediately. I’d prefer that help to come from Daryl. So if anyone knows the dude, send him my way to rescue me from The Walking Dead madness around here.

Two nights ago I forced the entire family, and my daughter’s boyfriend to make dinner because I didn’t want to walk away during an episode. So they were all cooking, grating and tossing pizza while I had my eyes glued to the TV, and my rump firmly glued to the sofa.

One night ago I was making dinner with mini-me, we had The Walking Dead on as we worked. I got so distracted I actually cut myself while trying to pull a knife out of the knife drawer. I then did what any self-respecting Walking Dead junkie would do, I feigned that I was mortally wounded so I could have the family finish dinner for me. That way I could once again glue my eyes to the TV, and my rump to the sofa.

It’s wildly out of control, folks. I need help immediately. Send Daryl. Stat.

Okay so now you know why I’ve barely been visible on the blog or social media. I’d apologize but I’m loving every minute of it. So we’re all just going to have to suck it up and pretend today is Sunday March 2, my bloggy birthday. Even though I posted this on Tuesday March 4, and conveniently backdated it so it looks like I was Miss Pro-Organized and Efficient Blogger. It’s all good. It’s our little secret.

So to celebrate I’m hosting two giveaways. One HUGE one will be taking place with some of my bloggy buddies on March 12. Today I’m hosting my own little solo giveaway. I’m giving 1 lucky reader a $50 Amazon Gift Card. So make sure you enter for your chance to win. Open to U.S. and Canada.

No celebration would be complete without some chocolate. So I made some Baked Fudge. If you have not had the pleasure of trying it you’re missing out big time. It’s divine. I saw it on The Pioneer Woman‘s site and was so intrigued I just had to try it. 10 times. All hiding in the closet so I didn’t have to share. My bad.

Baked Fudge

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 4 large ramekins or 8 small mason jars

Serving Size: Depends how hungry you are!

Ingredients

  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar, I used Vanilla Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, heaping
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon chocolate extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Beat the eggs until light in colour.
  • Now add the white granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Beat until combined.
  • Add the cocoa, flour, butter and extracts. Mix until just combined. Do not over-mix.
  • Pour the batter into ramekins or small mason jars (good quality so they don't break in the oven) and set those inside a rimmed baking dish. I used a cake pan. Then pour water inside the baking dish (but NOT in the ramekins or mason jars) until it comes up about halfway.
  • Pop in the oven for about 40 to 50 minutes, they should be a crust on the top that is crisp but the inside should be firm but still just a tad gooey. It reminds me of a firm creme brulee on the inside.
  • You can serve these hot, and they will taste almost like a gooey brownie. Or you can pop them in the fridge to make them firmer and set up. Then they become almost like a soft fudgy pudding.
  • I like mine hot out of the oven. I just use a dish towel wrapped around the jar and have at it.
  • Serve with a big old chocolatey smile!

Notes

Recipe Source: The Pioneer Woman's Delicious Baked Fudge

I only changed a couple of minor things. I liked the addition of brown sugar for more sweetness. I also used vanilla sugar because I love the flavour of it. Then I tossed in some extra extract in the form of chocolate extract. You can omit that if you don't have it.

I cannot even begin to describe this one. It’s so decadent and over the top good. You have to try it for yourself. Then hide in the closet so you don’t have to share. No evidence…no guilt!

Baked Fudge | Simple, classic, and chock full of chocolatey goodness. Your family is going to love this one!

So now you’re all wondering if I’ve been distracted by The Walking Dead again and forgot there is supposed to be a giveaway. Heck to the no, folks.

First of all, thank YOU. Without all of you this blog would not give me the joy it does every single day. I adore my readers, you become like family, we get to know each other and that’s the coolest part of blogging for me. I love the interaction and relationships formed by it. The shared passion of cooking and baking that brings us all together. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. For reading, commenting, sharing, and just showing up to let me know my little corner of the blogosphere is worth something.

    Three years? How time flies! Congrats! And baked fudge sounds like a wonderful idea. BTW, they do have these machines that let you record TV programs so you can watch them later. ;-) Might work for you. :D

      Kim Beaulieu says:

      Ha, we DVR about 25 shows. But I’m trying to watch back episodes of walking dead so we use tubeplus like crazy. I’m so hooked at this point I’m just going to go buy the DVD’s. It’s sad. I love the show way too much. There’s tons of websites we can’t use here, only available in the states. So annoying. I always try bravo for some shows but it blocks my IP. I heard there’s a way to break the code somehow but that stuff makes me nervous. I’m such a tv buff that we cable, a dvr and netflix. Got all my bases covered, so ridiculous right. lol

      And thanks. I love this job. It’s so much fun.

  19. 38

    I like to try new things when I’m celebrating with friends and family! I do love a good dip, though. Buffalo Chicken dip, spinach artichoke dip… you name it!

    Happy Bloggy Birthday! This recipe looks fantastic. I always crave chocolate, and I like that I can put my vanilla sugar to use with this.
    By the way, I don’t blsme you for getting caught up in the Walking Dead – I save it until it comes out on Netflix and then watch the whole season within 2 days!

    • 51
      Kim Beaulieu says:

      Thanks Lana. Vanilla sugar rocks for baking. I like the vanilla gives such a rich flavour. I tend to use a lot of it.

      We’re almost done season 3 now, I think there’s 3 more episodes to go. So excited for season 4.

    • 65
      Kim Beaulieu says:

      I just watched it. I had no idea she was British. She was super cute in person.

      Thanks my friend. I still can’t believe it’s been 3 years.

      Brownies ALWAYS count. My fave.

  33. 66

    The only celebrations where I cook are either Thanksgiving or Christmas. So as long as everything is cooked correctly and on time and enjoyed by all (and I don’t go insane) it’s a great one! This past Christmas was easy and simply as I had my father with me. Chicken cooked in the dutch oven, roasted potatoes and green beans with goat cheese and dried cranberries. Simple, easy, and I didn’t go insane from making sure everything was right!

    • 67
      Kim Beaulieu says:

      I totally feel that way too. Some celebrations end up being too much work. When our kids were young we had to order food in one year due to someone having a health crisis. Then I realized I actually got to visit with people for once on a birthday. Needless to say we started doing it all the time. ha

    depends on the occasion but we usually do bbq and cupcakes or cookies… when we don’t grill, i usually make fresh pizza. :)

    • 73
      Kim Beaulieu says:

      I love that we started around the same time. I wish the same for you my friend. I adore you, and your site. And thanks. I am addicted to cute spoons, and chocolate. xx

  37. 74

    Wow, that’s a tough question. I guess it depends on what the celebration is and for whom. I’d have to say that a good roast beef would top the list though.

  38. 76

    Happy anniversary to your amazing blog! I remember how much I liked you from the first time you commented on my blog…and I’m so glad we’ve become the friends we are today!!!

    PS…I’d make something chocolate, probably a flourless chocolate cake, but baked fudge might win out!

    • 77
      Kim Beaulieu says:

      Thanks Liz. Awe, you’re going to make me cry. I am so happy we’ve become such amazing friends. I adore you so very much. I can’t wait to see you this spring.

      I think anything chocolate is perfect.

  39. 78

    YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! HAPPY BLOGAVERSARYYYY!!!!! You deserve every bit of success and happiness because YOU are amazing and you make crazy delicious food (aaaand yepp…I would totally horde this baked fudge because YUMMMEHHHH MINE!)

    Fave recipe to make for people is….various varieties of cookies!!

    • 79
      Kim Beaulieu says:

      Thanks so much Kayle. I love blogging, it’s such a cool job. The perks are amazing. I’m so thrilled with how many amazing friends I’ve made doing this.

      I love cookies. I don’t make them too often. Which is sort of weird.

  40. 80

    Ermahgerd. I think I just gained 20 lbs from reading this post… which is a problem, because I’ll surely gain another 20 lbs when I get around to making these babies and then stuffing the whole batch in my face. Because I will totally do it. For serious.
    I don’t really have one special dish I make for celebrations, mostly because I get bored easily and constantly need to change things up. I guess roast turkey counts, mostly because there’s only two of us, so I only make it when we’ve got company.

    • 81
      Kim Beaulieu says:

      Ha, I need to get back on the treadmill, I’ve been slacking lately. Not going to be a pretty if I keep this up.

      We rarely eat turkey so hubby goes wacky when I make it. I love making a massive one then freezing it. I tend to get asked to make lasagna when we have company. It’s the most requested dish I make, stuffing is a close second.

  41. 82

    i love making a pie!

    Happy Blogiversary!! What a great achievement and great fudge too if I may add ;-)

  44. 88

    Hello, A very happy anniversary to you and wishing many more. Thank you for the giveway. My favorite recipe for any celebratory get together would be a lovely lip smacking Payasam (Indian Sweet Pudding) . I have grown up gorging on them for every occasion and not making them for any celebration would mean a guilt trip and not celebrating properly.

  45. 90
    Colleen G says:

    For dessert I like to Crazy Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting (that old fashioned recipe where you make wells in the combined dry ingredients and add vinegar), as a “gift” I make Oatmeal Bread, if you are coming for dinner Slow Cooker Lasanga.

  46. 91

    Ok, noooow I need to scold you! You should totally be reading the comic. If you think the show is good – the comic is 10000 x better!!!! No really… plus, it really makes the day wiz by. Theres 19 volumes out already. I mean, I don’t know anyone who sells comics or anything… or know that K goes into comic shops and could grab you volume one… Just saying… ;)

    Baked fudge for the win!

  49. 94

    Our celebrations are usually in the form of birthdays. Each person gets to pick their favorite food for me to make. Cheesecake is probably the most asked for dish, so that’s my answer and I’m sticking to it. Congrats on three years.

I mean, if you needed me I would get on a plane and fly over to be by your side. For good times or bad. But I am sorry, I would not send Daryl that way. I mean c’mon…let’s be real. ;)

    Back to the fudge…I love the idea! And Happy Blogaversary!!! I always enjoy coming over here and seeing what the heck you are up to. I wish I could bake you a turtle cake for your big day!

  71. 116

    Whoops – forgot to comment about my favorite recipe for friends and family… I love making big semi-fancy slow-cooker meals like coconut curry chicken or BBQ pulled pork for big groups because they basically make themselves after you do the prep work!

  72. 117

    Often It’s Italian. But many times it’s simple like burgers on the grill. There’s always dessert.

    I love making pineapple upside down cake – it reminds me of Sundays at my grandmother’s house.

    My favorite recipe to make for family when celebrating are cookies- any kind really but the most requested are flour-less peanut butter for my aunt, chocolate and pb or Nutella and white chocolate with dried cranberries. Cupcakes and muffins are a close second (or third depending if you define muffins and cupcakes differently. Isn’t the only difference that one lacks frosting and ought to be a smidge healthier?!)

    Kim,
    Congratulations on three years of blogging! Hooray! I am so very happy for you, and I absolutely love your blog and amazing recipes! Speaking of which- this divine baked fudge which I need to make immediately- can I get by without chocolate extract or come up with a substitute? Thanks and lots of happy hugs!

      Thanks so much Tracy. I appreciate it so much. You can totally skip the chocolate extract. Just use vanilla and you’re totally good. xx

    Hello. These look amazing! I had a question. I usually make pumpkin bread in a jar to give as gifts during the Christmas season. I was wondering if you could do the same thing with these? With pumpkin bread i n a jar you add the jar lids as soon as they come out of the oven, and they seal as the bread cools. Then they can keep for up to a year. Have you tried doing that with these? If not, do you think that they would be good if served that way, cooled in a sealed jar? I just think if it works out, what a darling gift, a small jar of chocolate Heaven!

      That sounds really good.

      I’ve never tried it. I don’t think it would work the same way with these baked fudge. But I’m sure you could seal them after they cooled and give them as gifts.

      Thanks Marianne. They are really good.

      The spoons are from a store called Gracious Home. I’m not sure if they still carry them or not.
