It was my turn to host our neighborhood book club. Every month, the ladies in my neighborhood get together to laugh, chat, eat, and oh yeah, discuss the book we read that month. Our book club dinners are always a lot of fun, full of good food, good wine, and good conversation.
For dessert, I wanted something rich and satisfying yet easy to make. This fudge is ridiculously easy; 3 ingredients and about as many minutes to prepare. If you've been wondering what to do with the cans of organic condensed milk at TJ's, here's your recipe! Every time I've served it, I've been asked how to make it. At book club, I served pieces of the fudge with big fresh strawberries.
In general, a hint of coffee or espresso really enhances and intensifies the taste of chocolate. When my co-author Wona's husband had an office contest for best chocolate dessert, she sent him in with this fudge. Out of all the complex chocolate concoctions entered into the contest - guess what - the fudge won! When people asked Wona for the recipe, she was almost too embarrassed to admit how simple it is!
