Saturday was last day at school for lil’M…..Before the school close for winter vacation there was a small pre-Christmas celebration at her school…..I was waiting for this to come from so long….the time of the year, which I always use to look forward when I was in school….I still remember how my school use to decorate each and every tree with colour little lights and a huge stage with balloons and ribbons use to come up….in the school premises….
Parents, children, friends and relatives use to gather to watch the live performance by the school children from class 1 to class 9…..As the evening come close to end, the school band girls along with senior teachers in chorus use to sing…”The Happy Christmas Comes Once More…..”, the chill weather, lonely night, star filled sky, huge Christmas tree with beautiful handmade embellishments and little coloured lights, a big red star hanging outside the school gate, heavenly aroma of baking……wow…that was one of those magical moments that I always wish never to end…..goose bumps all over….wish I was in school again…..
I thought of making fudge for the kids in lil’M’s class and for her teachers. Chocolate is best loved by all and so chocolate fudge was my first option to make when I think of anything sweet for kids….As this fudge is so easy and requires minimal ingredients, I thought of making this…
I had one small box of butterscotch choco chips with me, which were bought by one of my friend from Bangalore…I kept them to try out in making ice cream…but eventually dropped the plan and made fudge using them. Though I make fudge with dark chocolate and white chocolate, believe me this is one of the best fudge I ever made….butterscotch chips have added a crunch to the fudge which even kids loved relishing….
If you are looking out for delectable edible gifts to gift your loved ones or friends or colleagues… this fudge make a perfect match. As I had very less butterscotch choco chips, I also made dark chocolate fudge with nuts….the recipe of which you can find here….
