Thankful for Chocolate!
Many folks are writing inspiring and sometimes somber articles about the things they are thankful for this season. I will do that too, but right now I am oh-so-sincerely thankful for chocolate!
It is a small tradition. Every Thanksgiving, I am the bringer of fudge (and wine). I would happily provide the cranberries - for which I have a half-dozen recipes - or a crowd-sized salad. But other family members have their favorites of those items. No one else makes fudge, so I am the designated chocolatier.
This year I will make two batches: One a plain but rich, dark chocolate, and the other milk chocolate with nuts. I usually add walnuts but am thinking I may toast pecans this time.
Who wants to lick the spoon of warm, gooey fudge?
