Babies Are Delicious

Er, Fudge Babies, that is. Don’t want you to get the wrong idea here.

Lucy over at Porridge & Parsnips  (btw – don’t you just love her blog name?), made a bunch of CCK’s Fudge Babies the other day. After reading Lucy’s post, I knew what I would be doing last Friday evening.

I bunked off from cooking dinner and sent Tristan to Mellow Mushroom (pizza for him, veggie sandwich and Greek salad for me), and then got to work deciding which variety of “baby” make. (I don’t read CCK’s blog, and was unaware of this phenomenon). I have however, made date balls before (which is basically what these are), but I called them Powerballs. Oh yeah. Anyway, I settled on the Samoa and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavors. The Samoas sounded the best to me, but I felt that I should make a non-coconut version for T to enjoy, as well. (Despite the fact that coconut is not his favorite food, he enjoyed the Samoas the best! Go figure).

I made a few changes with the Samoa Babies… namely that I added a handful of cashews to the mix (they were originally nut-free), and also I rolled them in shredded unsweetened coconut when they were finished. This was definitely not a mistake. And it made them so festive looking, to boot! Other than those little changes, I think I followed the recipes to the letter.

This was a quick and easy way to get delicious treats in about 30 minutes. A messy hand, notwithstanding! ; )

  3. Hey,

    I’m a bit late commenting on this – I tried a few days ago but my silly computer wouldn’t let me! :( & now I can’t remember what I said!!!

    Your babies look great – rolling them in coconut is a great idea, they look so pretty!!

    Thank you so much for your kind comments about my blog name :) I’ve never been 100% sure about it – I like it, but I’m not convinced it completely reflects me and my blog. I do love porridge and parsnips (seperately) as food though, so all good!! Knowing other people like the name gives me more confidence, so thank you :)
