Christmas Baking

Lil man and I made fudge last night. I was gonna make Magic Cookie Bars but had no magic. I made chocolate fudge without nuts because one of my favorite little girls is allergic to nuts.



This reminded me of a story from long, long ago.


Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away there lived a mom with 2 little girls, 2 little jobs, and just enough money. It was Christmastime in the kingdom and the mom and the little girls were making candy to give as gifts to the babysitter (who was helping), the landlord, the mailman, etc.

We were making 2 kinds of candy at the time. Walnut Bourbon Balls and Unwalnut Bourbon Balls.



The littlest girl, 6 at the time, rolled one of the UBB into a perfect ball and placed it in the paper cup and said, “There, isn’t she pretty?”



I said, “Yes, it is, baby, but why is it a she?”



“No nuts, Mom.“

You need to share this story with Min at Mama Drama. She has a collection of Nut Story...she even has a Sorority for the writers. Go tell her.

We always make female fudge, too.
And with both kids in braces right now, nuts aren't a lot of fun anyway.

What I really miss about Christmas candy is divinity. My mom always made some with nuts... but some without just for me. She had a huge mixer that sat on the counter, and I held my breath every year while I watched her make it.

Thanks for making me smile this morning.

walking in the park - the only thing I do differently is use chocolate chips instead of the squares.

swampy - done, and thanks

ami - thanks, glad I could make you smile.

Swampy's right. I do collect nut stories, pictures and especially encourage a new genre of art known as "Contemporary Cockles". Thanks for the new anecdote!
