I have to admit that when I first heard the phrase “armpit fudge,” I was pretty grossed out! But after reading the recipe, I knew that the boys in my den would LOVE this! It tastes great, and it’s fun to make. Throw in the gross factor, and you have a winning combination!
You can watch this video for instructions. The recipe is below the video.
1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 tablespoon butter
2 teaspoons cream cheese
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Put all of the ingredients in a recloseable plastic bag. Squeeze the air out of the bag and seal it. Knead the bag until all of the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. You can use your armpits, your knees, your hands–anything you can think of to smush the bag!
After the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, open the bag and eat with a spoon. The consistency will be more like thick frosting than fudge.
