I know, I know: I’m so pedestrian, BUT...what if I added a little cocoa powder to these? You’ll probably say I should just try the recipe the way it’s written first, and you’d be 100% right...Go ahead and tell me

lololol, I would never. I’m pedestrian by nature and bougie by choice. My advice would be to keep the recipe as is but add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder along with the powdered sugar. Any more than that and you’ll have to start messing with ration of dry and wet ingredients to make sure you keep a fudge-like texture. But if you know your shit and are good with that sort of cooking by feel, you can totally pull it off. Report your findings back please

LOL--bougie by choice! BBC. Love it!! Ok, I also need Medjool dates, so as soon as I get them, I’ll try and report back! (I just inherited a Breville food processor, and THIS will be my maiden voyage. So excited!) 😘

😂 I have a weakness for merch (which could also be put on merch). Because I currently live in the Ozarks, I think a BBC T-shirt would go over very well here (just like my Republic of California hat, ohhhh they just LOVE that).

The Breville was heaven, the fudge (with cocoa, can’t wait to try without, too) was divine, and I made a BBC logo! Thanks for the pro tips!!

I have no dates. I'm thinking that's kinda critical to the success of the fudge amirite?

Make sure they’re medjool dates. You won’t regret getting them. They’re one of my favorite snacks!
