This trick meant no treats.

I am beginning to recognize that there are things which I will probably never be able to make, or at least not make well.  One of these things is rice krispie treats.  I know that seems ridiculous, but I've only made them one, or maybe two times that they were actually good.  The other times they have been barely passable. 

Another thing is fudge.  This was not the first time I have tried to make fudge, and every time I try, it doesn't come out right.  It has been grainy, or too hard, or, like this time, way too soft.  Please turn your attention to the evidence:

Yes, that's right.  I made pumpkin fudge spread.  It wasn't supposed to be a spread. I followed the directions, put it in the pan, let it cool to room temperature for several hours on the counter before putting it in the fridge overnight.  And I got this stuff.  It's quite tasty, but not fudge.  It couldn't cut into pretty little squares, and therefore I couldn't take it to work as a Halloween treat for my coworkers.  All trick, no treat this holiday. 

I got the recipe here, if you want to check it out.  Like I said, it's tasty, just didn't set up for me. 

Anyway, I promised you when I started this that I would tell you about my failures, so here you go. 

And, PS, the hubster looked at the photo and said "dude, it looks like crusty peanut butter."  Sad thing is, he's right.

  1. Doesn't look like fudge, but I'd probably be happy to try eating it. Looks like it'd be good on graham crackers.
