    A DELICIOUS HOMEMADE MEXICAN FUDGE RECIPE

    Hola, amigos! Bienvenido! Como estas?
    And that’s about the extent of my Spanish…

    Translation per Google: Hi, friends! Welcome! How are you? 😉

    I took French. And in the 4 years of gargling each “R”, I *think* I learnedabout 20 words, give or take. I also learned how to make proper Crepes and dang good French Onion Soup.

    However, and if it wasn’t evident enough, I’m really getting into Mexican cuisine here, eh? Yesterday we had Skillet Burritos and today we’re having Spicy Mexican Hot Chocolate Fudge! I figured, since I was on a roll with those burritos, why not continue on and make my next favorite south-of-the-border recipe.

    Though, as I mentioned yesterday, I’m not the biggest fan of Mexican food, I AM the biggest fan of Mexican desserts. I looooove their sweets; Churros, Tres Leches Cake, Caramel Flans, etc.. LOVE ‘EM ALL!

    In fact, my last vacation in Puerto Vallarta involved Mexican sweets for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. I ate guacamole during Happy Hour, with a side of MargaritaS. Lots of ’em. I miss those days… drunk and happy. 😉

    Ooooh, hello there, melty chocolate. If it wasn’t so wrong, I’d take a spoon and eat you. But, first, we gotta make some fudge. (Sidenote: Do you really think I let all that chocolate go into the fudge? Yah, right. I licked that bowl clean! …keepin’ it real…)

    The highlight of this fudge is the hint of spice. It’s not a lot, but it’s there and it’s perfect. Also? The espresso. Itsimply just heightens the flavor of the chocolate, but if you want to avoid it, you can use vanilla extract in its place. No harm done. But it’s Monday – you might want to reconsider.
