Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

It’s wonderful that the days are getting longer each day. When Peter came back from work at 7pm, it was still light out. We had these little treats in the backyard like other people having a cocktail before dinner.

Angela had no school today and I expected her to rise sometime in the afternoon, but she surprised me by getting up in mid morning and agreeing to take a walk with me to Safeway.  It was a mild day with the sun peeking out from the clouds.  Most people were at work or in school.  There were some young mothers with babies or toddlers and some old people on the streets.  We were walking at a leisurely pace, commenting on the fashion statement of some passersby or the store window displays.  Nowhere to rush to, not a care in the world.  It was the most casual of moments, but it suddenly seemed to go into slow motion.  I became acutely aware of myself and everything around me.  I turned to look at Angela and she gave me a smile that was especially beautiful and warm. 

Memories of vacations and holidays often run together into a blurry picture, but this impromptu Friday walk will be remembered like an unexpected gift — a little package of happiness at my door step.

Chocolate and Peanut butter is a pretty magic combo, though second to mother and daughter.

Preparation:

Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Scoop into a container or even a little pie pan, and put in the fridge or freezer so it will firm up. (Alternatively, you can eat it soft, like frosting!)
