When I went to church services this past weekend, the Carmelite Hermits were in the vestibule of the church selling jam, jellies and fudge. The Carmelite Hermits are a group of holy men who devote their lives to God and doing good for others. They make different items that they sell to help their cause. Well, I am a sucker for chocolate fudge, but I didn't have any extra money on me, so I had to pass up the chance to buy anything. But my husband, sweetheart that he is, bought me the chocolate fudge and surprised me with it.
I must say that this is absolutely the best fudge I have ever had. It is so chocolatey and creamy. One pound of this fudge costs $12.00, which I thought was a little pricey, but it is going to a good cause. And the taste of the fudge is so good, that it truly is worth overy penny. The Carmelite Hermits were also selling other flavors, and my husband bought a pound of vanilla for his mother. But the chocolate was my weakness, and it really is delicious. It is made with cream and butter, and can be purchased, along with other food items, on their website, www.carmelitehermits.org. I told my husband this one pound box of fudge was the best gift he could have given me, and the fudge is so good that it is not an exaggeration.
Update On Jan 12, 2011: This past Christmas I purchased another box of the chocolate fudge, along with a box of chocolate and peanut butter swirl and chocolate with walnuts. I still have a small amount of the fudge left and intend to enjoy it within the week. For anyone who enjoys fudge, give this treat a try.
