WoW Shadowlands // Cookie Fudge

Every time I read or hear Shadowlands I don't think about the new World of Warcraft expansion, instead my mind jumps to Shadow Legends ... Raid Shadow Legends. Apparently their gigantic advertising campaign actually works. But this mobile game is not supposed to be the topic of today.

Shadowlands has been out for a little while now and I have to admit that I'm having a good time. Especially the new maps of the “World of Warcraft”-y afterlife are exactly my thing.

Golden fields full of temples, owls and blue Greeks, heavy metal skeleton zombie madness, a night sky forest inspired by Celtic mythology and finally vampires (who all look as if they had bitten into a lemon) in a gigantic castle complex. Then there is also the rather repulsive maw, but that's how it’s meant to be, so: Well done Blizzard!

In these varied areas you can expect not only the usual quests, monsters and, for the first time in a long time, a continuous story, but also four groups, so-called covenants, which ask you to join them. In return for your help, you'll get equipment, mounts, two skills, and more. So the decision is pretty important and this is where the biggest problem of Shadowlands rears its four heads.

The skills are not all equally good (yet), so some players feel compelled to join a covenant that they don't like in order to play their class as well as possible. I'm not competitive enough for such thoughts, but I was still torn. My hunter fits looks like she was made for Bastion and I would have loved to get her the kyrian skins, mounts and pets, but as a whole package the Night Fae won.

Today's recipe is not only a nice snack while you are playing Shadowlands, but also helps all the poor souls who simply cannot decide which covenant to join. Bonus: my cookie fudge is not only delicious, it is also made rather quickly. The queue for one of the eight new dungeons takes longer!

All you need are three ingredients: biscuits, sweetened condensed milk and chocolate lentils. If you already know which covenant you like best, you can simply mix everything together, otherwise the color you bite into decides whether you should choose the Night Fae (blue), the Kyrians (yellow), the Necrolords (green) or the Venthyr (red).

A little tip: In Germany, for example, food colors are not as strong as elsewhere, if you want to be absolutely sure that the color comes through, you can help it with tiny drops of food coloring.


175g Graham Crackers

300ml Sweetened Condensed Milk

100g Chocolate Lentils (M&Ms, Smarties, etc)

Food Coloring (optional)

  • preheat the oven to 160C, top and bottom heat

  • sort the chocolate lentils so that you have about 25g each in blue, yellow, red and green

  • fill the biscuits in a freezer bag and crumble them thoroughly, e.g. with a rolling pin

  • alternatively: crush the biscuits in a blender till you have fine crumbs

  • mix the biscuit powder and condensed milk in a bowl

  • fill half of the mixture in a baking dish (mine is 27x18cm) and press it flat

  • stick groups of 2-3 chocolate lentils of the same color evenly spaced into the dough

  • optional: put a drop of suitable food coloring on the groups

  • cover the chocolate lentils with the rest of the batter

  • place the mold in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, until the dough is nicely browned

  • let the cookie fudge cool before you cut it into squares

  • Guten Hunger!
