“This is the worst Christmas vacation ever!” said Isaac on Friday evening before bed. And he was right. Starting Christmas day, somebody in the family was sick every day, and for a few days it was three out of the four children. And when that happens nothing gets done. The dishes don’t get washed, the floor doesn’t get mopped, the boxes don’t get recycled, and the blog doesn’t get updated. But here, on the eve of their return to school, Daddy made up for all that by making a grand dessert.
Karen started things off with the perfect dinner, as usual. Then I got to make the dessert from a cookbook received as a present from my now-favorite sister in law. It’s by George Duran, the “Ham on the Street” guy, and he calls it Chocolate Soup. I can see already that I’ll get a lot of use out of this one. When describing this dish George says “I love soup. I love chocolate.” And yeah, it was good.
But really, is it possible to mess up a recipe with this many ingredients?
Probably, but this was good. It wasn’t silky smooth or divine or anything, but it got rave reviews around the table. It was like eating really good hot chocolate with a spoon from a bowl. You know, like fancy people do. So thanks to Aliyah, I promise we’ll make this the next time you visit.
