Chocolate Fudge

This is the easiest dessert I have made in my kitchen.I got the basic recipe from a colleague of mine, and I tweaked it a little bit as per my taste. Actually, it was my son who made this fudge.  I just helped him in pouring the final result into the pan.

You need

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 can of condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • wax paper
  • Mix the chocolate chips, condensed milk and butter, and heat in the microwave for 1 minute. If the chocolate is not yet melted, mix and heat 15 sec at a time.You don't want to overdo this. 
  • Mix in the vanilla extract.
  • Pour into a 9 * 9 pan lined with wax paper. You can also line it with aluminium foil sprayed with baking oil.
  • Let it set in refrigerator for 2 hours.

  • Cut it into squares or whatever shape you desire. Its easier to cut it when its right out of the refrigerator.
  • To pack it as a present for my son's classroom, I wrapped it in wax paper with a hemp string around it and added a card.

Dig into it!

Knitting Project

With the temperatures finally dropping here in our city, I have been itching to start a warm cozy knitting project for my baby girl. After all the baby dresses I made for her(never got time to post about those), I thought it was time for a sweater. With no patience to wait until I could go buy some girly colors, I decided to start with whatever I had. From my stash, Green and Grey combination it is.

 Hopefully, I will be able to complete this project before this winter ends.

Mason Jar Snow Globe

As always, I have been working on many small projects and crafts, but too lazy to post. This snow globe is an easy breezy project I did with my 4 year old. He made it not just for himself, but also for few of his friends to take to a Christmas play date. So, I could use few of the mason jars which I had stored over the years.

Stuff needed
  • Baby oil
  • Mason Jar
  • Fake snow or styrofoam ball
  • Miniature tree
  • Figurines
  • E 6000 glue


  1. Attach the tree and the figurines to the base of the mason jar lid. I used E 6000 glue. On one globe, I had used hot glue, but the tree came off after few days. So, I would advice against using it. For the tree in it, I cut a small branch of the artificial Christmas tree.
  2. For making snow, we rubbed pieces of styro foam ball. You can also use fake snow or glitter sold at craft stores.
  3. In the mason jar, add the baby oil and snow, and close the lid(to which figurines are attached) using some glue. 
  4. Screw the other part of lid.

Shake it, and enjoy!
