Pin Win – Valentine Special

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Today is the day of love and so what better way to spread love than a cute cat with a stuffed animal and a Pinterest Success?

Chai and his monkey

Chai and his monkey

This is my cat, Chai Chai with his stuffed monkey. He’s had that monkey since he was a kitten and still loves it.

I caught him “hugging” ripping the monkey’s face off, and just had to snap a picture of the cuteness to share.

Along with cuddles and kisses, Valentine’s day is filled with sweets. I decided to make my special someone (my wonderfully supportive husband) a delicacy I found on Pinterest.

My husband likes vanilla over chocolate, so I knew I had to find something extra special just for him. Lucky for me I had pinned this recipe forever ago and was just waiting for the right chance to use it!

Baileys, White Chocolate, and Pistachio Fudge

Baileys, White Chocolate, and Pistachio Fudge

The recipe for Baileys, White Chocolate, and Pistachio Fudge can be found at The Two Bite Club here.

This fudge was so easy to make and took hardly any time at all. Everything melted together smoothly. I couldn’t wait for it to get cool and hardened before I tried some.

OH MAN is it good?! I used roasted and salted pistachios which added a nice contrast to the super sweet white chocolate. The Bailey’s isn’t very strong but I think it does balance the flavors.

The real test… My husband loves it!

I used a heart mold to make these cute valentine’s shape and there was some fudge left in the mold. My husband took a spoon and ate what was left over plus the fudge I actually gave him.

I did cut the recipe in half, since there are only two of us and we aren’t much into sweets, but this is so good, I’m sure we won’t have any trouble finishing it.

I think this is a wonderful alternative to the typical fudge out there. I have plenty of pistachios left over, but I am certain those won’t last long at all (my husband can devour a bag of pistachios!).

I hope your Valentine’s day was extra special. Mine isn’t over yet… I still have a hot date tonight with the best husband ever.

Did pinterest inspire you with your Valentines plans? If so, tell me about it in the comments.

Until Next Time
