My Taste&Create partner for this month was The Bad Girl's Kitchen. Min created the blog as a meeting place for real women (and men!) who love food and a place to share recipes - and some pretty darn tasty ones by the looks of it. I was torn between quite a few recipes, like these Black Forest Upside Down Cakes or these Chocolate Covered Cherries, but in the end I settled on these chocolate-y peanut-y blocks of goodness.
This has got to be the easiest fudge recipe out. Which is good, since I have a track record of dismal FAILures with past fudge-making attempts. Best of all is you can make them in the microwave in the space of oh, about 10 minutes. Which includes time to play with your cuddly little kitten. Hypothetical example of course...
These are deliciously gooey and awesome (and have I mentioned insanely chocolate-y?), and they scored full marks in the Creative household. The slight saltiness from the peanuts adds that extra layer of flavour that'll make you want to gobble up the entire tray at once. Not that I would ever do that. *Cough*
