sweet indulgence

When the first of May dawns wet and grey, and frankly seems more like February, it calls for deperate measures. I've been meaning to try this recipe for longer than I can remember.

I can now highly recommend Sophie Dahl's Peanut Butter Fudge. It melts on the tongue and has a delicious crumbly texture. It's rich and indulgent, and goes perfectly with strong coffee.

Pipany, I'll bring some over tomorrow. I can't eat all that by myself.

Oh lucky lucky Pipany! It looks irresistible.

I learnt the other day that in France posies of lily of the valley are exchanged on May Day. I fancy that, don't you?

I have just read Silverpebble's comment. I would like to exchange Lily-of-the-Valley AND fudge on May Day! The fudge looks mouthwateringly good. x

Pipany said...

Hurrah!! I am SO looking forward to it - and seeing you of course, dear Diana xx

Oh I have been meaning to try that for a little while too...what a grey day it has been here today, but then we can't complain it has been so lovely these past few weeks!
Enjoy your fudge!

Is it rude to offer to send you my postal address so that you can send some my way too?! ;-)

I bet I could eat all of that by myself. Not that I'm hinting or anything.

Hope your May weather has improved Diana and you are enjoying some lovely sunshine.

I really could eat some of that fudge right now!

My husband and I made some of this a few years ago - it's one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten. I think you are very generous to share it. Lucky Pipany.

I've just used the beautiful silk that you sent me a year or so ago in a very small quilt - the silk is very lovely indeed. Thank you so much. x
