Easy 5 Ingredient Mexican Chocolate Fudge

Quick and Easy, Microwaveable, 5 Ingredient Mexican Chocolate Fudge #Recipe - #unidosconlalechera @lalecherausa #ad
 

While I am a baker through and through I do love making candies too. It only happens on special occasions or for the holidays but it’s something I learned from my mom. Since we were kids she would spend hours making fudge and truffles. She’d find pretty tins each year and package them up beautifully for friends, family and coworkers as gifts. Since I know she will be making her recipes every year that means if I want to make candies I need to use different recipes than hers. Since, I also have a houseful of kids and time is short I need quick and easy recipes. Lucky for you! You can’t get any quicker or easier than my 5 Ingredient Mexican Chocolate Fudge.

While I learned my love of making sweet treats from my mom I get my Mexican flare from my dad. My grandma was Mexican and we spent many holidays at her house enjoying Mexican fare. Since Mexican chocolate is a staple in Mexican cuisine and different from American chocolate I like using it. If you aren’t familiar with Mexican chocolate it is less sweet than its American counterpart and it tend to have cinnamon and almond flavors in it. You can even find some with peppers added to it. That’s why it works well in both sweet and savory foods.

My secret weapon to make my fudge recipe quicker and easier than my mom’s traditional recipe? It’s my use of NESTLÉ® La Lechera Sweetened Condensed Milk. If you aren’t familiar with sweetened condensed milk you are missing out on a sweet lovers secret weapon.

You can use it in candy or baking recipes but you can also add it to the tops of cookies, add a bit to your coffee or quickly make yourself some caramel. It’s an inexpensive item that you’ll want to add to your grocery shopping list to amp up your holiday baking. Then you can grab it on your next trip to Walmart in the Mexican foods aisle.

My other cheat to making this recipe is that there is no big pot and constant stirring, watching, timing and temperature checking like you get in so many candy recipes. Nope, this one takes minutes in the microwave. Literally the most taxing thing about making this fudge is waiting for it to chill so you can cut it.

ReadyRefresh by Nestlé® is Keeping FORO (Fear of Running Out) at Bay

ReadyRefresh by Nestlé® is Keeping FORO (Fear of Running Out) at Bay #NoMoreFORO
Thank you to ReadyRefresh℠ by Nestlé ® for sponsoring this blog post. All opinions are my own.

 

Have you been consumed by FORO (Fear of Running Out) this summer? Has the heat and humidity gotten to you and caused you to consume a higher rate of liquid refreshment? ReadyRefresh is here to keep your family hydrated and FORO (Fear of Running Out) at bay this summer!

ReadyRefresh by Nestlé® is Keeping FORO (Fear of Running Out) at Bay #NoMoreFORO

What is FORO?

Buying bottled water by the individual bottle means you’re spending way too much time restocking at the grocery store. Buying in bulk keeps your shopping trips infrequent, but those cases are so heavy, and big box stores are energy-sapping circuses. With that dreaded trip to the store looming, a sense of anxiety takes over. As your bottled water supply dwindles, you begin to hoard those last few bottles for your kids, your spouse, or even just a thirstier moment. This is a phenomenon referred to as The Fear of Running Out—denying yourself and your family the bottled water they want just so you don’t have to go back to the store or add another inconvenience to your day. 

We spend a ton of our summer at our local park pool, the beach, and neighborhood parks. Making sure the kids stay hydrated is a must! Making sure they hydrate with great-tasting drinks without the sugar and caffeine that’s no good for them is my mission as a mom.

ReadyRefresh by Nestlé® is Keeping FORO (Fear of Running Out) at Bay #NoMoreFORO

A FORO Study was done and this is what they learned

  • More than half of all surveyed (52%) experience FORO at least once a week.
  • 69% of those surveyed experience feelings such as stress, anxiety and worry when household items start to run low.
  • 69% of survey respondents run low on everyday household items at least once a week.
  • According to survey respondents, bottled water is the beverage of choice in homes (36%), workplaces (46%), and at school (36%).
  • Nearly half of all full-time working parents (46%) surveyed say they ration or replace everyday household items with a less desirable alternative at least once per week, in order to avoid running out completely.
  • According to the survey, when running low on household items, food (67%), toilet paper (51%) and bottled water (43%) are the most likely to be restocked first – ahead of items like milk (20%) and diapers (7%).
  • Of those surveyed, three out of four (75%) working parents would buy more household items in bulk if it was more convenient.
  • According to the survey, more than half of full-time working parents (55%) say that daily errands keep them from spending quality time with friends and family.

Why is it important to have good drink options available at all times?

Today, beverages account for 47% of added sugars in the U.S. American Diet and more than 13% of calories consumed per day. The newly released 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that the primary beverage consumed should be either calorie-free – especially water – or should contribute beneficial nutrients such as fat-free and low-fat milk and 100% juice.

Replacing a single 12-ounce, 140 calorie sugar sweetened beverage with water each day for a year can cut more than 50,000 calories from one’s diet. That’s a lot of calories that I’m sure nobody wants their kids ingesting on sugar.

I know for me, since I have been following a Keto lifestyle making sure I have healthy, carb- and sugar-free drink options are an absolute must! Without them I’d be reduced to drinking regular tap water and sometimes a girl wants a little more flavor than that in what she’s drinking.

Why I’m on board with ReadyRefresh

My husband is a soda junkie and at his age I don’t think I’ll ever get him to get past it. I myself am a water and tea girl since giving up sugary drinks a few years back. (One of my best decisions ever!) The problem I face is that kids are impressionable and if they see daddy with soda and it’s in cans and bottles than can be easily grabbed then we end up battling about why they shouldn’t be having that. 

I have noticed that if I have other, healthier options on hand that they will drink those instead. If there are ice cold bottles of water and tea then they will grab that to take to the park, beach, pool or anyplace else we may be headed in the hot summer sun.

Added bonus… with all of the types and flavors of waters and teas I can change up my daily drink routine as the mood strikes me.  This is where the video will be embedded.

During the summer I am off of work since I work for the school district part-time during the school year. That means the kids and I are together all day long which can be lots of fun! We are able to go and do a lot of different things during the day while my husband is at work. That means we have lots of adventures both indoors and out that work up a sweat. That’s why it’s so important that we are staying hydrated during our summer fun with Nestle Pure Life so we can keep going. 

Staying Hydrated During Our Summer Fun with Nestle Pure Life

Soaking up the sun at the pool and beach, playing sports or having a blast at an amusement park is always fun but being out in the sun and heat all day can quickly and easily dehydrate your body. That’s why it’s key that I carry some Nestle Pure Life bottled water with me at all times. 

Staying Hydrated During Our Summer Fun with Nestle Pure Life

 

With summer bringing more time outdoors, more sun exposure and your body sweating more, it is key to replenish your body’s fluids regularly. 

Signs of dehydration in babies, children and adults are:

  • Dry, sticky mouth
  • Sleepiness or tiredness — children are likely to be less active than usual
  • Thirst
  • Decreased urine output
  • No wet diapers for three hours for infants
  • Few or no tears when crying
  • Dry skin
  • Headache
  • Constipation
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness

If you experience or notice any of these signs in your children be sure to grab a bottle of Nestle Pure Life water and get them back to feeling like themselves.

Nestle Pure Life an Easy Way to Stay Hydrated and Healthy

At the beginning of this year I set a goal for myself to get healthier and happier. I have found that the two go hand in hand with each. The healthier I am being the better my body runs and feels, and in turn the happier I am. One of the keys to me being a healthier person has been to skip the sugar loaded sodas and juices and opt for some ice-cold water instead. To make this easier I always keep some Nestle Pure Life Water on hand in my refrigerator to quickly grab and go during my busy day.

 Nestle Pure Life an Easy Way to Stay Hydrated and Healthy

I know what you are thinking. How does just switching from sugar drinks to water make that much of an impact on your body and life? Well let me tell you the benefits I have discovered.

  1. I’ve been drinking 8 ounces of water before meals. By doing this my stomach is already somewhat filled which helps me consume fewer calories. This in turn means I can lose weight easier. This is an easy step to incorporate into any healthy diet plan.
  2. Water actually helps to turn up the burn in your metabolism. I don’t know about you but my metabolism can use all the help it can get.
  3. Fiber! Eating more fiber is important to being healthier. But did you know that if you don’t consume enough water then that fiber actually plugs you up instead of getting things flowing?
  4. I’ve been plagued the last five years with new and continued health problems. I’ve had my gall bladder out, kidney stones and multiple kidney infections, not to mention liver disease and numerous other health problems. I’ve found studies that show that increased water intake helps to reduce the risks of kidney stones, heart attacks, and urinary and colon cancers. Upping my water intake to avoid those things seems like an easy way to avoid some very unpleasant illnesses.
  5. Your skin will show it if you’re getting enough water. Water will help keep your skin plump and help to make your complexion look brighter. I know for me since hitting 40 I want to make sure I’m giving my skin the TLC it needs and deserves.
  6. I’ve been exercising this year and working to make it a healthy routine and happy thanks to some friends going to the gym with me. Even with that though without being and keeping hydrated before, during and after my workouts I find myself feeling tired. Keeping my water intake where it should be before, during and after a workout helps me feel more alert.
  7. Water also maintains many vital body functions. Water help to remove waste from the body. Metabolized foods are carried through the bloodstream by water. It lubricates joints, creates saliva and acts as a shock absorber to important things like your brain, spinal cord and fetuses. Water also regulates our body’s internal temperature through respiration and perspiration

 Nestle Pure Life an Easy Way to Stay Hydrated and Healthy

Water is definitely a quick, easy and inexpensive way to get you onto the path of a healthier lifestyle. After all, our bodies are made of mostly water so it only makes sense that we need water daily to keep them working and functioning at the optimal level for our age. Most men need to consume about 3 liters of water a day and most women need about 2.2 liters. Don’t forget about the kids too. Babies and kids have a higher percentage of water in their little bodies than adults do. So with the warmer temperatures coming be sure to grab some Nestle Pure Life Water for your whole family to stay healthy and hydrated.

12 Steps to Quality. It’s not just our process, it’s our promise.
