Unfortunately, it was rough week in the Beardy household. When we were over in Ireland, unfortunately, Beardy Fiance’s grandmother passed away. It was a tough time for him – she had lived with his family while they were growing up and he was quite close to her. It led to a fairly long and emotional week, so once we got back to London, I just wanted to make him something simple but comforting.
I’d been reading a book lately where the heroine talks about her lavender and white chocolate scones – which I thought seemed like a great flavour combination. So I decided to go for (in my opinion) the easiest way of mixing together some chocolate: fudge.
You can’t go wrong with chocolate and condensed milk – it’s really easy to change the add-ins based on the flavours that you’re in the mood for, and I felt like tasting spring.
