A Thanksgiving Treat

Well, Thanksgiving was a couple days ago, and it definitely did not disappoint. The food was absolutely amazing, and I was definitely reminded of why Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It feels great to be able to eat whatever I want, regardless of whether or not I have a nut allergy. By far my favorite food of the night was the dessert, which was Fudgy Wudgies! If you don’t know what those are, imagine a glorious combination of chocolate fudge, cheesecake, and brownie. Even that can’t begin to describe how delicious it was.

I wanted to share the deliciousness of the Fudgy Wudgies with my readers, so I’m posting the recipe below. Apparently, it’s like a really old family recipe that was adapted to be nut safe by leaving out the walnuts, which is pretty cool.
