Nutty Chocolate Fudge #FoodieExtravaganza

nutty-chocolate-fudge-foodieextravaganza

I love this month theme, we all know that October is a chocolate month and we must make lots and lots of delicious recipes using chocolate, especially because is a great opportunity to clean up the pantry and start fresh for the holidays.

As a chocoholic myself, I always have a good amount of different kinds of chocolate, you know like chips, bars, and cocoa, I have to say that my pantry is always full with a good variety of this amazing treat.

So check out your pantry because this recipe is super easy to make and I’m sure you will find all the ingredients hiding somewhere.

Foodie Extravaganza is a monthly food fest, where a group of bloggers all create and share a recipe around one of the monthly food ‘holidays’ as detailed in The Nibble. This month Kathleen from Fearlessly Creative Mammas is hosting and since chocolate day is October 28th, Chocolate is our theme. There are actually two other days that incorporate chocolate in October, the 14th is Chocolate Covered Insect Day and the 18th is Chocolate Cupcake day. We didn’t want to get to specific though, so we will just say chocolate.

Posting day is always the first Wednesday of each month. If you are a blogger and would like to join our group and blog along with us, come join our Facebook page Foodie Extravaganza. We would love to have you! If you’re a spectator looking for delicious tid-bits check out our Foodie Extravaganza Pinterest Board! Looking for our previous parties? Check them out HERE.

Now, check out these great chocolate submissions!

Easy Orange Fudge #TheLeftoversClub

Easy Orange Fudge #TheLeftoversClub

This month for the #TheLeftoversClub I want it to send and make something different and change the theme a little, no cookies this month, so for my friend Faye Rodriguez I make delicious and super easy Orange Fudge.

Ok, this fudge is very different to any others you have tried, and is very traditional in my country, yes in Costa Rica we make all different kinds of fudge and is call Cajetas. We have so many different flavors like, coconut, peanuts, carrots, etc. But this orange fudge is so fresh and delicious, the flavor of the orange zest cuts the sweets of the sugar and you end up with the perfect dessert after a good lunch or dinner.

I just hope she likes it as much as we love it. And let me know how many pieces of this fudge will you eat.
