Super Easy Valentines’ Day Fudge {With a Lesson to Walk in LOVE}

We did one more {super yummy} fun LOVEFamily {Bible} Time” activity! And in the end we had a delicious treat! :)

We got to work making some super easy Valentines’ Day fudge! As we worked on the fudge we used “the LOVE chapter” {1 Corinthians 13} to talk about what “LOVE IS”!

the bakers

“Love is patient {waiting your turn}, love is kind {helping get out the mixing bowls}, it does not envy {wishing you you had someone else’s bakers hat}, it does not boast {bragging about pouring the first ingredients in}, it is not proud {thinking you can mix better than everyone else}. It is not rude {pushing others off the stool}, it is not self-seeking {wanting to lick every spoon}, it keeps no record of wrongs {telling of how your sister licked all the batter last time}… Love never fails.”
(taken from 1 Corinthians 13:4-8)

baking bakers
mix sprinkles
To make the fudge… Melt 1 tablespoon butter with one bag chocolate chips (we did this in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds). Mix in a 16oz. can of chocolate frosting. Pour onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Put sprinkles on (if desired) and let cool in refrigerator for 1-2 hours. (I got this easy fudge recipe from here, & the idea to cut the fudge into hearts here!)
Oh, and don’t forget to lick the batter! :)

yummy fudhe

While we waited for the fudge to cool, (we ate supper… which was a bit spoiled by our “fudge tasting” & then) we talked about 2 John 6, particularly where it says: “you must walk in love.” I wanted to remind our kids (& myself) that we need to walk in love EVERY day, EVERY moment- not just on the week before Valentines’ Day, when we’ve had lots of fun opportunities to talk about LOVE! We brought out our big roll of paper, & wrote 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 on it. The kids thought it was great that when the verses were all rolled out, the L-O-N-G paper was longer than the length of our house! :) Then we walked on the words, tip-toed on the words, marched & danced & ran & jumped on the words… as we said the verses over & over, always ending with a loud “LOVE NEVER FAILS!”

Then, we practiced what “LOVE is” again, as we used heart shaped cookie cutters on our fudge! “Love is patient {waiting for mommy to help, so the fudge comes out looking like a heart}… Love is not self-seeking {finding others to share our fudge with}…”

Valentine Fudge

May we WALK IN LOVE {Christ’s LOVE} every day!

Happy Valentines’ Day!
