What’s Cooking? Mama Dip’s Baked Fudge!

Last night I had a problem many can relate to—all I wanted was something CHOCOLATE. Seeing as how I was too tired to run to the store for a sweet tooth fix or even try and attempt something overly complicated at home, I turned to Mama Dip’s Family Cookbook to see if there was something simple yet delectable to get me through.

As I flipped through the pages, I found an interesting recipe that caught my eye—“Baked Fudge.” The best part about it? I had all the ingredients right there in my kitchen. Butter, sugar, eggs, milk, vanilla, flour, a pinch of salt and two unsweetened chocolate baking squares are all it called for and took about 10 minutes to prepare. Twenty minutes in the oven and then you have a delicious cross between a warm gooey brownie and a piece of homemade fudge that is impossible to resist!

For someone who finds cooking slightly difficult and frustrating at times, Mama Dip’s Family Cook Book provides recipes that are simple and clear…yet still taste like you were sitting right there at Mama Dip’s restaurant enjoying her southern sweets.
