Peanut Butter Fudge

Dave does not like the texture of peanut butter despite liking peanuts. This means I could have enjoyed the entire batch of peanut butter fudge. But being a sharing and caring person I gifted half of what I made to a friend.

I am very particular about the toothpaste I use. Firstly, it has to be a gel as I don’t like the texture of a paste. And secondly, it has to taste good. I know you are not meant to eat your toothpaste, but it still needs to have a pleasant taste. A few years ago my first choice brand stopped bringing the gel version into the country. This left me with testing new toothpastes for some time. Eventually I found one I liked. And no sooner had I made my way through the first batch I bought, they changed the formula to a paste. I bought this by mistake, so worked my way through that lot. And as soon as it was done, I saw the gel formula was back. I was so excited until I got home and used it only to discover it was not the same brand.

The packaging was so similar and the name just as close that I did not notice. And I have not enjoyed using this toothpaste at all. The charcoal has not whitened my teeth as it is meant to. And I need to use a lot more than I had to of the other brand. This again left me searching for a gel toothpaste and I think I may have found the one. It ticks the dual boxes of gel and taste, and it is 100% natural. For me being chemical and paraben free is a must and I am hoping this one whitens my teeth as advertised. It is also budget friendly compared to other commercial brands which is also a huge priority right now. Do you use a gel or paste toothpaste, and is yours a natural product?

  1. Hi Tandy, Although ‘im indoors still does the cooking these days…(and he’s a ‘dab hand’ anyway, ) I keep out of the kitchen (except to help clear up…) but, nevertheless, still enjoy reading your many tempting recipes. Reminds me of hours baking when our three lads were nearly ‘eating us out of the house.’ …Now I’m so ancient (90), my energy levels are not what they were, but we still get out and about when we can and I’m still writing my newspaper column, ‘Chairing’ for Writers’s Ink, and now and then penning for WordPress ( A new one overdue…This is to wish you and your husband a very healthy, happy New Year.Shalom. xx Joy

  2. I’m not much of a sweets eater, but peanut butter and chocolate is a lovely combination. This fudge looks fantastic. The miso is really interesting!

  3. Hi Tandy, I must admit I am not fussy about toothpaste. I use whatever brand my husband choses when he orders from Checkers. This is an interesting fudge recipe. My recipes are complex and I use a sugar thermometer to make it.

    1. It acts as a ‘setting’ agent so I am not sure what would do the same other than butter. Is it the taste you loathe? We get odourless varieties here.

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