Its has been a hectic summer with travels and summer camps. In a week or so life will be normal with schools reopening. Though it is back to school time I have been busy de-cluttering big time and getting ready for the new school year. With all the clearing out, my kitchen benefited the most. I was able to find things that were left unused and I had to either come up with something interesting to do with the left over things or give them away. Last week I made dosa batter with wild rice, I thought it turned out fine,then I found two cups of solidified bournvita chunk. Had to do something with it because nobody wanted to have some hot chocolate. So decided to make a fudge out of it. The fudge took me 5 minutes to prepare and the end result was yummy. More than the taste the texture of the fudge really impressed me. It was soft, chewy and almost resembled a brownie. I decided to blog about it because the next time you find yourself in a similar situation with boost or any such drink instead of junking it one can use it to prepare something delicious. This fudge was not too sweet so if you want to make it very sweet add more brown sugar to it. The fudge scored an 8.5 from my daughter and husband which I thought was great for a left over bournvita.
