cookies 'n' cream fudge

Seriously, one of the best recipes ever. If you love Hershey's Cookies and Cream bars, you are going to la la la love this. Not only is the end product delicious, but it it practically* fool proof.


Cookies 'n' Cream Fudge

3 (6 ounce) packages white chocolate baking squares (I use white chocolate chips instead)
1 (14 ounce) can EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 cups coarsely chopped chocolate creme-filled sandwich cookies (use fingers or knife to chop and throw away fine crumbs)

In heavy saucepan, over low heat, melt white chocolate squares, sweetened condensed milk and salt. Remove from heat; stir in crushed cookies.
Spread evenly into wax-paper-lined 8-inch square pan. Chill 2 hours or until firm.
Turn fudge onto cutting board; peel off paper and cut into squares. Store leftovers covered in refrigerator.

For more tips/suggestions, read reviews at the following link:

*Please note that despite the simplicity of this recipe, it will not prevent you from forgetting to add 6 ounces of white chocolate chips and/or dropping the whole batch on the floor while pouring it into the pan. Don't worry - I did both of these things on the first batch I made yesterday. Apologies to those who won't get any fudge as a result. :)

girls' camp beads

Per Angela's request, here is a picture of the different beads I made for Girls' Camp last month. Each girl has a necklace and they get beads for passing off certification requirements.

Each necklace also has a pendant. Here's the one I made for my necklace.

Accessories are so fun, but I can rarely bring myself to spend much money on them because I know I can make them for so much cheaper. So that's what I do! Here are some of my latest.

Not pictured are the approximately 100 beads I made for Girls' Camp. I am our ward's Camp Director, so I got to spend most of last week in the great outdoors with some amazing ladies. I don't know the last time I was away from cell phones and e-mail for 3 straight days, but was a nice break. :)
