IMG_2051

I can not wait to share this recipe.  also wonder, how come I left it in draft for such long (read it as an year) time. But ..yeah..there might be a reason, as this has to happen today. A very special, super healthy, decadent and divinely tasteful fudge, get created almost in no time. My little sister is blessed with baby girl and I am very happy for her and without putting much of my brain, my fingares did all the work. And ..there it is, a divine fudge.

You don’t have to worry about the measurements here..it’s totally cooking with instinct. Add all the dry fruits and nuts, you would like to insert in. It all blends magically well.  Like pure love. Every bite is just nothing but goodness.

New folder1This dry fruit fudge with edible gum is believed to serve as a  preventive medicine for the back aches in pregnant women, and strengthen the bones in general. However not much information about the medicinal properties of dink is available online. However traditionally this is one of the immune booster which is served to kids and women  as a part of their afternoon snack or a part of breakfast, occasionally.
