I love the Olympics! Winter Olympics, Summer Olympics, I love it all! I love watching curling and hold out hope that I can still be an Olympian because curling exists. I think this time around my favorite thing to watch has been the different snowboarding events. Watching those snowboarders really gets my heart racing! It’s so nerve-wracking! (I also love watching Adam Rippon’s skating, obvz.) What are your favorite Olympic events? What do you think of the one where they look like flying squirrels?!
As you may have noticed, I’ve dropped the ball on the blog for the past few weeks. Unfortunately, sometimes life gets in the way and when something has to give, it ends up being the blog. But I’m back with a really awesome recipe to help make up for it! This fudge will make all your Olympic food dreams come through.
Have you tried the new Hershey’s Gold bar? I bought one as soon as they came out and was immediately hooked. It’s a caramel cream base with pretzels and peanuts. I’m not a big fan of nuts and very rarely use them in my baking, but the peanuts added such a delicious flavor to the Hershey bar. I decided to recreate the Hershey’s Gold bar which turned into this AHHHHMAZING Gold Medal Fudge. This fudge is a caramel white chocolate base, filled with crushed pretzels and peanuts. And when I say filled, I mean filled. You get tons of salty goodness in every single bite. YUM.
To taste this fudge, I bought another Hershey’s Gold bar to compare. YOU GUYS. This fudge is better than the Hershey bar! (Sorry, Hershey, but it’s true!) This fudge is SUPER SIMPLE and just requires a pot and a spatula. It is worth the time it takes to set in the fridge. So get this fudge in the fridge and take your Olympic viewing to the next level.
