Get Your Feet Out of the Fudge!!!!!!!
This is the part where I got sidetracked. Tessie showed up as I was finding things and insisted that I put her sock monkey in as one of the toys.
If you are interested in making sock monkeys from poly clay, go here.
There are full instructions on how to do it.
I finally got someone on my side. In exchange for his Santa hat, Zar agreed to drag Tessie out so I could finish the photos.
She managed to grab one of the Guatemalan Worry Dolls that I was going to include in the toy section. At least she left the rest intact.
I did have to send Zar back in to keep Spike from eating all of the bows from the presents.
They must put something in that ribbon that attracts animals. My cats like the real Christmas bows and will chew them if they get the chance to do so.
When I went back to put it in the fridge, this is what I found.
Yup. Those are footprints in the fudge! She traipsed across the whole pan and plopped herself on the corner and demanded, "Casey! Take my picture! It will prove that you are keeping up your end of the bargain."
Well, we didn't need the top layer anyway. I just called Zar to come fetch her again. He will be here shortly.
If you would like to make "Tessie Fudge", it is the easiest recipe I have ever found and it is really good too.
1 1/2 bags(24 oz) of chocolate chips
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla
a pinch of salt.
In a saucepan, melt chocolate chips and milk over medium heat. Stir while melting.
When melted, remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and salt. Add 3/4 c. chopped nuts, if desired.
Spread in an 8" square pan. Refrigerate. When almost hard, cut into squares.
I sometimes use one bag of semi sweet chips and half a bag of another flavor. I put in white chocolate this morning. It is really good with peanut butter chips too. Take your pick. Mix and match.
Now that I have sidetracked you into making fudge, I will get back to work.
I have proof that I am sticking to the agreement and with footprints, no less!
See you tomorrow.
