Secret Recipe Club

Y’all…it’s Secret Recipe Club time.

Get excited.

Yesterday, I got to warp my brain trying to write a 6 page nutrition paper.

It was a grand ole’ time.

On another note, I always love the time right around Halloween where I get to see my mom standing over her “cauldron” as she adds butter, popcorn, sugar, and her magical touch to a sticky, sweet, salty mixture.

Her popcorn balls are marvelous.

Now, if only it were 40 degrees and the fire place was blazing…it would be perfect.

Let’s talk about today’s recipe.

It’s pretty freaking amazing.

The recipe comes from Ashley, the lovely lady behind the food blog, Rainstorms and Love Notes.

I just love that blog name. It’s so warm and inviting. I love rainstorms and what girl doesn’t love love notes?

Even cheesy love notes. Those are the best kind. 😉

Ashley is married to T.J., and besides being a lover of all things food, she is a football fanatic.

She might be a Steeler’s fan, and I may just be a Cowboy’s fan, but hey, food and football…two things in common 🙂

Now, while I really wanted to try some of Ashley’s game time eats like her Spicy Pumpkin Cheese Ball and Spinach Artichoke Dip, you know my sweet tooth, once again, got the best of me 🙂

Enter Ashely’s recipe for the

 Easiest Ever Peanut Butter and Chocolate Fudge

She’s not joking.

It’s seriously three ingredients.

You know anything w/ peanut butter + chocolate speaks to me.

Ashley used butter but we were out so, I improvised…coconut butter it is.

You do a little melting over on the stove and add some semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Well, hey there, silky smooth deliciousness.

Then you refrigerate and voila…

I added sea salt on top because sometimes I like to be fancy.

Y’all…this stuff is the perfect balance between creamy, smooth, nutty peanut butter and rich chocolate.

It reminded me of my favorite fudge. As a child, my parents would take me down to Galveston to the historic strand district.

There, in a old building, was The Peanut Butter Factory (yes, there was such a thing) filled with all sort of  antique things and…homemade fudge. They were famous for their peanut butter fudge.

Chocolate + peanut butter was my favorite, obviously.

Unfortunately, The Peanut Butter Factory was ruined in a hurricane.

NBD now that I have this fudge recipe!
