I've had a number of you asking if I really will write your family Christmas letter. The answer is heck, yeah! Seriously. I say 'heck' now. Did I mention I recently moved to Utah? Anyway, for more info drop me a line at mybackorderedlife at gmail dot com. And start thinking about what you want your super power to be.
Yep. These letters make you sound THAT good.
DeNae's Salute to Fudge, Day 3:
After just ten short years in your basement, your artificial Christmas tree has contracted Dutch Elm disease. This despite the fact that it's not an elm, it's not Dutch, and -- this is the really important part -- it's not actually a tree.
No matter. While still warm, fudge can be molded into any shape you like. It may take 30 or 40 batches of the stuff to get it up to eight feet, but the good news is that with enough walnuts this tree pretty much decorates itself.
Read the specs on your lights, however. They must be able to illuminate several hundred pounds of chocolate without melting it. They'll be very dim lights.
