Easy does it…

I could possibly rip a small child’s right out of its arm socket if they were holding an ice cream cone or really any food. I told you all that I had to give up dairy but the “reset” type diet (for my allergies) they have me on for 10 days pretty much took away any and all fun foods: sugar, caffeine, booze, bacon, eggs, peanut butter, wheat, most fruits. I’m basically sharing the same diet as my rabbits…which when you are allergic almost half the stuff on the can eat list you get pretty tired of your foods quickly. I’m on day three…but who’s counting?

The hardest part other than the glaring obvious is that I have to continue to make stuff for the blog, people, Tablespoon…and not taste it. It’s a little too warm to turn the oven on as of late and making ice cream would have made me a sad panda. Not that making fudge was really any easier it turns out.

This is beyond easy to make. This would be fun to make with your kids. This uses the ever growing popular frosting fudge. It’s popular because it’s tasty and it’s so easy.

Have a good weekend…stay cool and really enjoy your food! :)

  1. Hang in there, Peabody! I wish I could suggest something to make the allergy-free days easier :(

    On a better note, that fudge looks amazing. Love the use of pretzel chips.

  2. Sorry, Peabody! I understand taking out some foods sometimes, but I would refuse any diet that removes most fruit. That just sounds ridiculous to me…and as a vegetarian, I might die. ;) But hey, if all it take to make fudge is a handful of ingredients, I’m going to say you’ve given me permission to go even more rustic and just eat frosting out of the tub. Thanks! ;)

  3. Peabody says:

    @Caley- I’m allergic to a lot of fruits so any fruits that are in the family of fruits I’m allergic to are out.

  4. Have you been tested for candida? It causes a lot of our food allergies and much more.

  5. Peabody says:

    @Shela- yes I have, three times actually

  6. The list of “can’t haves” sounds awful. I remember how bad it was when I couldn’t eat chocolate, and I lived in a house of chocoholics, and my grandfather kept requesting brownies…but they’ve practically banned you from anything good. No sugar? No caffeine? No BACON? NO PEANUT BUTTER? :( I feel for you!

    I haven’t yet tried the recipes for frosting fudge because I never quite trusted that they’d come out without being inedibly sweet or not setting, but it looks like that’s going to change soon. Now it’s been endorsed by you. And salty pretzels, nutty PB, and sweet marshmallows? Hook, line, sinker.

  7. @KB it is on the sweeter side which is why I added pretzels. But I’ve made it peppermint fudge with it that wasn’t that sweet. It’s a softer fudge but definitely holds shape.

  8. I have never heard of frosting fudge. This is interesting!

    I can’t imagine having to deal with food allergies. Always having to worry about contamination or it secretly hiding in something. My sister is lactose intolerant and It didn’t get so bad until this past year. And because I haven’t been around her for the past year (yay college) I keep forgetting for a split second every time I ask if she wants pizza or ice cream or something when she says she’s hungry. At least you can still eat some stuff with this new reset diet. If I were told I could eat all that stuff for a while I would be living off shaved deli turkey…seriously.

  9. Oh, you poor poor thing :( This fudge is fabulous, it looks dangerously addicting, I love it!

  10. This is the first I’ve heard of fudge made with frosting…clearly I am behind the times. :)

    Your re-set diet….ugh….I am so sorry. I would have to lock myself up b/c I would be such a nasty person without caffeine, sugar or bacon. But, this too so shall pass, and I am sure you will feel tons better afterwards.

    You mentioned you’ve made peppermint fudge with frosting….I’ve got to search the site to see if I can find that. I love peppermint!

    Hang in there these next few days – your readers are thinking of you!

  11. I don’t think I could resist trying something I made, idk how you do it!

  12. I’ve never heard of fudge made with frosting either – I think I’ll start with this recipe!

    I hope your reset does what it’s supposed to do so you feel better soon and can start adding foods.
