Chocolate Humor

DH:  (looking at one of my cookbooks)
Me:  Oh!  Whatcha wanta make?
DH:  (shows fudge recipe) But it takes 2 hours, I'll make it another time.
Me:  I can make some fudge frosting, it will be ready in less than five minutes.
DH:  What would I do with that?
Me:  Eat it with a spoon of course!
DH:  (rolls eyes heavenward and laughs) I should have known you were going to say that.
Minutes pass
Me:  So do you want me to go make that frosting?
DH:  Sure
Five minutes later DH is eating fudge frosting with a spoon.
Me:  See, five minutes and it's good isn't it?
DH:  Well it's not fudge, but it is good.
Me:  Not bad for five minutes.

Sounds like a great solution. We love brownies (Ghirardelli mix) but they take 50 minutes to bake. My husband will give me that sad-puppy-dog look so I will make them...but we get to like the bowl so our chocolate fix gets a little sated before they are done.

Funny, a few years ago they advertised taking a can of frosting, spread it in a pan and chill, instant fudge.
