I think it’s finally time to post my fudge pictures! So in case you haven’t heard, I made fudge two weeks ago for my Daily Herald escapade! My mom nominated me for the “Cook of the Week” feature in the Food section of the Daily Herald. At first I felt a little silly, like why should I be the cook of the week? But then I realized that the paper needs 52 different people for this feature every year, so why not me?
The process began with a 45 minutes phone interview about three weeks ago. Laura, the interviewer, asked me a bunch of questions about my baking history, favorite recipes and just general info. It was fun to be on this side of an interview again. Then we scheduled the online video portion for the following week and decided I would be making fudge for the segment.
So fast forward to the shoot, where I had to prepare fudge in advance and then again on camera. My recipe change-up for this one was adding chocolate milk into the mix. I really don’t know if it made a difference, but anything to add more chocolate to something sounds good to me! You can check out the article and the recipe on theDaily Herald site. This was honestly one of the most fun things I’ve done in my life, and it was seriously delicious! The batch of fudge I made in the video clip was the creamiest ever, I think it might be because I didn’t rush anything in the process. I hope you enjoy the pictures, video and article – and if you’re anywhere in Schaumburg, stop by and get some fudge out of my house… please!
