Cookies 'n Birthday Cake Fudge

Last week at Walmart I was walking to the checker when I saw these:

It was like the sky opened up and the heavens glowed and angels sang.

I knew I had to make some thing with them. Otherwise I would eat the whole package at once.

So I made fudge. Because making fudge is the obvious way to avoid eating an entire package of cookies.

I've never made cooked fudge before. I've always been all "pshaw...why would I make boiled fudge and have to use my candy thermometer when I could just make it easy, those people who do all that work have way too much time on their hands." (Totally thought without judgement. I'm not that kind of person. No really, I'm not.)

And then I made this fudge. And I apologize. For the way I thought about cooked fudge. I am eating my humble pie now.

It's awesome. It's great. It's sweet and good and all that is right with the world.

And I can eat a ton of it. Because I made it with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!, so it has less fat and calories and I can add a bag of Birthday Cake Oreos and eat 17 pieces and not feel sick.

Recently the people at I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! contacted me. They wanted to give away some cool stuff to my readers.

Of course I said yes. I love my readers. They deserve cool stuff.

The Acadamy Awards are on Sunday. Are you going to watch? I love award shows, all of them. I can get a little obsessed. It doesn't matter the only movie I saw was the Help.

I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! is throwing a Red Carpet Viewing Party on Facebook on the big day, this Sunday the 26th.  There's going to be a roundtable discussion with some of Hollywood's biggest stars and a food and wine expert "known for her delicious recipes."

I have no idea who the star is. I'm hoping for Bethanny. Or Rachael Ray. Or Martha. Who doesn't love Martha??

If you want to follow along with the party, be sure to check out the chatter on Twitter at #ToastRedCarpet.

**UPDATE: Don't miss the show! It's a red carpet event hosted by Brooke Burke, Carson Kressley, and Molly Sims and Katie Lee! It's from 3:00-4:30 PST this Sunday on the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Facebook page. Click here for the link.**

It's a really cool prize pack. A silver tray, four champagne flutes, some "toast" coasters (they really look like toast!) a cheese spreader, and a coupon for a free tub of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Pretty cool prizes, if you ask me. I hope you'll enter!

Contest runs through Monday, February 27th. Winner will be announced Tuesday the 28th. US entries only, please.

How to enter:

  1. Leave a comment here. Something sweet and nice. 
  2. Do you follow me? Leave me a separate comment and tell me how you follow (GFC? RSS? ABCD? Just kidding on that last one. LOL)
  3. Follow me on Twitter (@crazyforcrust) and come back and leave a separate comment telling me you do.

This fudge would be a great addition to your Academy Awards party, if you're having one.  Or, you know, you could just be like me and eat handfuls of it while watching The Amazing Race or The Biggest Loser.

Just a suggestion.
