Eating chocolate fudge in Scotland
This tasty chocolate recipe is the delicious result of our trip to Edinburgh and all of the fudge we ate along the way. Our trip to Edinburgh looked something like this : arrive, check-in to our swanky hotel, try fudge for the first time, fall in love with said fudge, eat fudge for the rest of our trip… You get the picture! It was really fun and we highly recommend you take a trip there one day if you get the chance.
Besides this recipe being delicious and easy, here are some other reasons you should add making this fudge to your family’s Christmas to-do list :
- Christmas gift for your kids’ teachers? Perfect.
- Looking for a stocking stuffer idea that everyone will love? Done.
- Think it’s so sweet to give homemade, edible Christmas gifts but hate spending hours making Christmas cookies? Problem solved.
- Looking for a romantic treat to share with your husband in bed on Christmas morning? Look no further.
What was it about the fudge that made us fall in love during our stay in Edinburgh anyway?
We love fudge because of the flavor – of course. However, there was more to it. Walking around the quaint streets of Edinburgh, seeing the fudge shops along Royal Mile , the colors, the scents, the cozy cold weather. (Oh did we mention it was Winter and it was very very cold in Edinburgh when we visited?!)
It was all perfect – which is why we absolutely recommend traveling to eat. Check out this post about eating our way through Tuscany to see what I mean.
