The Gift of Time {Recipe: Girl Scout Cookie Fudge}

Girl Scout Cookie Fudge Recipe using Caramel Delights

This post is for all the moms across the country who have drawers, cabinets and freezers full of Girl Scout Cookies. Yes, you love Girl Scout Cookies, but that isn’t why you have a zillion and one boxes of them filling up your house. It is possibly because you received reminder email after reminder email from your cookie leader that the sale date is coming to a close. When the final email comes through, you look lovingly at your little girl scout and realize that you failed to have her rock her cookie sale skills to anyone. Not even grandma and grandpa. Therefore, so she can still get the beloved “Cookie Patch”, you buy all the required boxes of cookies… all for her happy heart and a $2 patch.

With four kids, I’ve discovered a lot of the little details of life are falling through the cracks. Things like cookie sales, canned good collections and spelling bee studying aren’t getting done. I can’t keep up!

 

So, Santa… if you’re reading, I’ve been a really good girl this year and I’d love nothing more than more time in the day. Think you can swing it? I know a lot of other people would appreciate that too!

For some reason, as much as I believe in Santa’s magic, I’m not sure he’ll be up to the task this year of giving us the gift of time. Luckily, Frigidaire is picking up his slack and offering fans of their brand the chance to win experiences for how they might enjoy some extra time, along with chances to win some of Frigidaire’s most efficient appliances.  From now through December 31st 2012, over on the Frigidaire Facebook Page, you can enter daily giveaways, weekly drawings for a Frigidaire Gallery Range with Symmetry Double Ovens and a grand prize of a full suite of time saving Frigidaire appliances. 

Check out how the Frigidaire Gallery Range with Symmetry Double Ovens made me an efficient holiday baker last year. It’s as close to a time saving machine as I’ll ever find!

Wouldn’t you love the gift of more time this holiday season? Head over to the Frigidaire Facebook Page to enter the giveaways, and to learn all about the time saving efficiency their appliances offer.

In the meantime, one of my time saving tips for the holiday is to take some shortcuts where shortcuts can be taken. For example, if you have a zillion and ten Girl Scout Cookies in your pantry, learn how to use them in recipes to simplify your holiday baking. This fudge recipe was quick, easy and took some Girl Scout Cookies off my hands. I could have easily switched the type of cookie out for any of the Girl Scout Cookies available, but thought I’d start getting rid of my favorite (aka most tempted by) Caramel Delights.

What are some of your best time saving tips for this busy time of year?

  1. Yep, more time in a day would be sweet. Love this fudge idea!

  2. I’m just sayin’ I wouldn’t kick this fudge out of bed ;)

  3. That fudge looks amazing! I would have to say the best time saver for me is saying no. The less obligations I have, the more likely I am to keep up with my schedule! :)

  4. Oh my friend! I want to curl up with my chotofcoffee and eat this with you! My best advice is to take time for a few guilt-free moments of pampering a day. xoxo- K

  5. Uh, these look fantastic!

    And my very best time saving tip is to always let everyone else do all the work! :)

  6. Well, damn… These look amazing. We only buy two boxes each year… But now we might have to stick up on more to make this fudge.

  7. Now this is a fun treat!

  8. Girl Scout Cookie season doesn’t even start until January here. It seems cruel to have it coincide with the holidays. Still, I’d eat your fudge. Now, about those extra hours in the day, Santa…

  9. Wow, I wish we hadn’t eaten all of Girl Scout oookies like starved maniacs this year. What a great idea!

  10. I dream of more time in a day. 5 minutes even, although I would love an extra 10 hours. I asked Santa for the same thing so *fingers crossed* we get what we asked for. I HAD extra time in my day when my 2 year old napped in the afternoon. My 4 year old would read, color, or watch a movie and I would get some things done. Well yesterday my husband took the 4 year old on an errand and I was going to bake cookies when the voice of my 2 year old was no longer via the monitor but much clearer and getting louder. She happily ran into the kitchen announcing her resignation of nap time. She scared me and then I realized she had climbed out of her crib for the very first time and was extremely proud of herself. So there goes my free time….
    Girl scout cookies aren’t even being sold yet and I am ok with that, so many Christmas cookies in the house right now that I am getting ready to ship to family and a couple friends. But I will save this in mind when I do see them being sold!

    Yes, yes and yes. I love everything about this post. Some nights around 9 pm, when it’s just finally getting calmed down, I wish that I could just click “insert” and add a few more hours into the day.

  12. These photographs are STUNNING! WOW! And the recipe is so easy! I agree! I need more time too! I wish Santa had a little more magic up his sleeve!

  13. I absolutely love homemade fudge especially at this time of year when it makes great gifts.

  14. I love girl scout cookies but we rarely have boxes upon boxes lying around… then again I don’t have a brownie or girl scout in the house as of yet. Are there even brownies anymore and I don’t mean the food? At least I know I’ll be in good company when things fall through the cracks because to me you’re a super mom and doing a fantastic job :)

  15. Genius!! How did you know I have two boxes of Girl Scout cookies in my freezer just itching to be used?!

  16. Sounds just about perfect to me!!! I just made a double batch of fudge for the firehouse last night. Tis the season right??!!

  17. Perfect! Our family love girl scout cookie so definitely worth a try.

  18. Nesrean Abdelhamid says:

    nice..

  19. Heather Christo says:

    These look completely amazing! And I don’t know how you do it with 4! I have two and am just EXHAUSTED and scrapping for time. But someday (in like 20 years), I am sure there will be plenty of it :)

  20. So I’m not the only one with a freezer full of Girl Scout cookies? haha Thanks for this idea!!
