The knife block set we got for our wedding conveniently came with a whacker. You know, one of those long rods that you use to whack things like candy canes or Oreos to crush them?
Okay, so it turns out the "whacker" is actually a knife sharpener. Yes, I just figured that out today.
Everyone needs a good whacker in their knife set. Otherwise you couldn't make these babies.

I've read that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
In actuality, I think the definition of insanity is realizing you're brushing your teeth in the stainless steel kitchen sink and you have no idea how you got there or why you're even brushing your teeth.
Apparently, the holidays are quite literally making me crazy.
This obviously has nothing to do with fudge sauce, except maybe chocolate is a good cure for the crazies?
This sauce turns chewy on cold ice cream so it is "hot fudge" in the traditional sense of the word. None of this chocolate syrup nonsense. I literally tried 5 recipes last month looking for the homemade hot fudge to share with you. This is it! Just in time to gift to neighbors for the holidays.
For an extra special treat, try the peppermint version.

Who is Terry and how did she invent the magical deliciousness that is a chocolate orange?
I know some families always get an orange in the toe of their stocking, but I always get a Terry's chocolate orange. Santa's definitely got my number. It just wouldn't be Christmas without that chocolate orange. So I figured why not chop up a chocolate orange and throw it in a dark chocolate cookie for a Christmas treat this year?
Turns out, it's a delicious idea.
These chocolate cookies are really good but are more of a crisp cookie. If you like chewy chocolate cookies, you can use a different recipe and just chop up a chocolate orange and substitute it for the chocolate chips in the recipe.
These are magical, magical Christmas cookies.
