Bitter Chocolate Fudge

Sheree made these last October and as soon as I saw her recipe I knew I had to make them. I adapted the recipe slightly, and the result is a bitter chocolate fudge that is really good. Especially if you do not like your treats too sweet. If you prefer a sweeter fudge I would suggest using chocolate with a lower cocoa solid content.

Sometimes when you offer a hand of help, you need to expect your entire arm to be yanked off! I am very willing to give advice and offer assistance where I can. A few months ago someone asked for UK SIM cards, and as I had a few to spare, I sent them to her. These were posted at my expense, and the person claimed never to have got them. I then sent her a link where she could order them herself. And again she said they did not arrive. So, out of the goodness of my heart, I went online and organized 10 SIM cards for her. Instead of getting a thank you, all I got was a complaint that only some arrived. I found this hard to believe as I ordered for myself at the same time and I received all of mine.

Upon checking my profile I could see how many she had activated. So I knew for sure how many had been received. Then, last month I sent someone information on the Airalo App, and she could not make head or tail of how to install the eSIM. I offered to help, sending messages back and forth all weekend. When she landed in South Africa she sent another slew of messages and I told her the same things over and over again. Eventually I got frustrated and told her to look on their website. But instead of doing that she posted a request for help on a Facebook Group. I decided to send her the same response there as I had on WhatsApp just to make a point. This last engagement has left me very reluctant to offer my hand in help! Would you keep on offering help?

  1. Hi Tandy, some people are givers and some are takers. Some receive with grace and some receive and just want more and more. Some people don’t want to actually learn to do anything, they really want a giver to do it for them, thank you for this adapted recipe. Michael can have these so it helps me a lot 💖🥰

  2. I like to help out too but you have to protect yourself also. Some people just love to take advantage! We do have a friend who is chronically late and seems to demand a lot of help from us but we realised that she actually has real mental health issues. So I guess you just have to decide where the line is drawn!. I do love bitter chocolate and sweets that are not too sweet 🙂

  3. I love this bittersweet fudge recipe. Fudge is delicious but, it can be too sweet. This is a really nice twist. Thanks for sharing.

    People can be such pains and very unappreciative. You went above and beyond.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
