Martha Stewart Living Chocolate-Walnut Fudge Bars



As I've stated previously, I have a major sweet tooth. I can't go more than a few days without something sweet and have even been known to have cake for breakfast. Luckily, I have my dad's genes and sweets don't ruin my otherwise healthy diet. I try to bake my sweets from scratch as much as possible since they taste so much better, so I am always on the look-out for new recipes. Recently Martha Stewart Living had a recipe for chocolate-walnut fudge bars that appealed to my sweet tooth.

This is a pretty easy fudge recipe, with a twist. The fudge is poured on top of chocolate wafer cookies, giving the bottom a crunch. I actually had a hard time finding plain chocolate wafers at my local grocery store, so I had to substitute with fudge covered wafers. This substitution created a toffee like crust on the fudge. All the other ingredients used in this recipe were basic and easy to find at my local store. The active time is stated as twenty minutes, but most of that is the ten minutes of baking time for the crust. All the other prep is done in the food processor and fridge.

This recipe turned out well. The walnuts give the fudge a slightly savory twist that, when combined with the semi-sweet chocolate, is a nice contrast. My four-year-old is a particular fan and ate a large portion of the fudge by himself. This a recipe that is a nice variation on traditional fudge and will be once I will use again whenever my sweet tooth acts up.
