So I went to the local supermarket to get some, amongst other things for dinner. Could I find any? No! Has anyone got any unusual recipies they'd like to share with me? I've heard that a small amount of fudge everyday will make your hair grow! Let's all eat fudge and see what happens! lol

I don't have any unusual recipes for fudge but I did come across a recipe that combines two of my favourite sweet things... Orkney Fudge Cheesecake Serves eight 250g Hobnobs (or other oaty biscuits), crushed 75g butter, melted 200g Philadelphia cream cheese 250g Orkney fudge (I'm sure any fudge will do) 600ml double cream, lightly whipped Make the base by combining the biscuits and butter and pressing into the base of a lightly buttered 24cm springform cake tin. Beat the cream cheese until soft. Grate 200g of the fudge (food processor can be used) and tip it into the cream cheese. Slowly fold cream cheese into the cream. Chop the remaining fudge and scatter it over the base of the cheesecake. Spoon the cream mixture over the top and cover. Chill for at least six hours before carefully decanting and serving in wedges.
