If you haven’t bought your sweetie a Valentine’s Day gift, you still have time to make this Easy Chocolate Rocky Road Fudge to say ‘I love you’. I said ‘easy’ because you cook this in the microwave. No need to stir anything on the stovetop. If you have chocolate chips, condensed milk and a microwave, you’re nearly done. Toss in some mini marshmallows and chopped walnuts, and you’ll have something very special.
Valentine’s is only once a year and it glorifies the retail industry. But Filipinos are a passionate people and love to express love. Valentine’s is celebrated like Christmas in the Philippines.
I love roses and chocolates like everyone else, but I tell my husband to get them from the local supermarket. There is no need for brand name boxes for a gift that comes from the heart.
Love is not just chocolates and roses. Love is the rough days, too.
Love is about disappointments, the sadness, the rejections, the day to day irritants.
Love is about caring for the one who’s ill, whether it’s a head cold or something tragically terminal.
Above all, love is about overcoming all these and hanging on to one another – spouses, siblings, children, best friends, neighbors and everyone in your life who matters.
Love is about the good and the bad, 365 days a year, 52 weeks, 24/7 non-stop. It has no expiry date.
And that, plus these Easy Chocolate Rocky Road Fudge are the best recipes for true love.
