Fudge and Finals

Hey There.

Sorry for the absence, school and sleep have been priorities recently. I absolutely cannot wait for Christmas break. Thursday at 9:45 A.M. I will be a very happy and relieved foodie. Of course before break starts, I have 5 midterms looming in front of me. At my school there’s not getting exempt until senior year, regardless of how high your grades are. Of course, to be a bit more optimistic, the stress of finals make Christmas even sweeter. I have been working on doing other things besides just typical studying in order to perform optimally on my exams. Some things I have been working on:

1) getting plenty of sleep

2) eating good healthy, filling food at all meals.

Such as this lovely salad I took for lunch yesterday, featuring plenty of leafy greens, carrots, avocado and pecans.

3) focusing on being efficient while studying and not being distracted (Which includes things such as signing off Facebook)

4) being organized

5) studying in different ways; aloud, notecards, draw pictures, whatever I can possible do to remember a lot of information

6) taking study breaks that include making yummy Christmas-y desserts :)

Such as almost vegan fudge, based on this recipe

1 cup extra dark chocolate chips*

1/3 cup plus a splash of coconut milk (full fat)

a shy 1/4 cup peanut butter (about 1/6th a cup)

1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix all ingredients together in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Continue to to microwave and stir for 15-30 second intervals until everything if fully melted. Pour in a small foil lined pan. Put in the fridge to harden for about an hour. Cut into squares and enjoy!

*because of the chocolate I used my fudge was not completely dairy free, however use different chocolate and it could be totally dairy free and vegan. Also, the ingredients could easily be doubled and it would probably fit nicely into an 8×8 pan.

Rich, Chocolately, and Delectable

Any other study tips?

Enjoy your Saturday!

  1. You could have a friend or parent write out a pre-test for you, so you can see what you need to study the most. I still have 4 tests to take before I’m done with this semester, so I know exactly how you feel!!!!

  2. Oh, that fudge looks so good, Ann-Claire! I want to make some. I may suggest it in place of our regular Velveeta Fudge (yeah, it’s actually made with Velveeta cheese. You can Google the recipe.) which is definitely not dairy-free. Haha. Good luck with your finals! :)

  3. THANK YOU!! For the fudge recipe. :D I’ve been wanting to make some vegan fudge for my brother and dad for Christmas but I couldn’t find a recipe. This not only looks good but it’s also simple!
