¸¸.•*¨*•♫ I’m dreaming of a ‘Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge’ Christmas¸¸.•*¨*•♫

News Flash: It’s difficult for Gulf Coast Texans to insert the ‘white’ into the lyrics. Heck, we’re hunkering down making fudge and daydreaming of 50 degrees, not the ‘white’ stuff.

Shhh. Let me tell y’all a secret! Texas gals aren’t thinking one iota about snow. They’re crossing their fingers and hoping for the chance to wear comfy UGGS in chilly – not below 40 degrees – weather.

And just like you, we send big warm wishes to be fullfilled by Santa. We share the same holiday desires to be snuggled into a warm fuzzy onesie while sitting by a roaring fire with a hot cup of steaming cocoa and the velvety taste of  a creamy fudge.

Yep, it’s a fact Jack, no matter if you live in a snowy climate or a high chill zone for the holidays it’s all about the fudge!

So go ahead! Give the new lyrics a try! It’s easy to insert into the song. All you have to do is add a Texas drawl and sing it like this…

¸¸.•*¨*•♫ I’m dreaming of a ‘peenut budda chawcolate fuudgge’ Christmas ¸¸.•*¨*•♫.

Now that’s singing ‘White Christmas’…Texas-style!

And while the tune is annoyingly stuck inside your head, let’s talk about fudge. It’s the ultimate antidote for song stuckers.

Fudge is the perfect comfort food and needs to be eaten slowly. Rushed fudge consumption turns straight to fat.

It’s TRUE!

When you scoff it down, fudge metabolizes right into body areas that are strictly off limits – thighs, tummies and butts.

Now the trick for even distribution of calories is to allow the fudge to melt slowly in your mouth and gradually release  your happily-sated mood endorphins.

Just by taking quiet moments to enjoy a delectable piece of fudge  inspires the desire to get in-touch with your inner child and the youthful thinking that, ‘calories don’t count!’

And these fantasy inducing calories of this Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge are instantaneously diminished by your ‘holiday state of mind.’

Now on to factual fudge…

This ‘no-fail, no-fuss’ Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge has a subtle peanut butter caramel flavor with a hint of decadent chocolate. It’s firm enough to cut neatly into squares, yet stays soft to the palate.

It’s an old-fashioned fudge recipe that was first published as Classic Desserts by Bordens in the 1930’s. A fudge that has been made by my family during the holidays for as long as I can remember.

Most importantly, the recipe comes with a ‘keep under wraps warning’:  it’s a fudge that has the tendency to magically disappear right before Christmas Eve. So keep a watchful eye for fudge munchers disguised as family members who inspire to be Santa.

And the snow? Well if we get a hankering for the white stuff, we just mosey on over to Santa’s Wonderland for the holiday spirit.

Yep, it’s fake snow but <shhh> don’t tell the Texas kids!

Thanks for dropping by! ‘Merry Christmas, from my kitchen to yours’, it’s just a small token of holiday nostalgia that will hopefully begin a fudge tradition for you too!

AND now that ‘I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas’ song is gone from your noggin’…

Let’s make fudge!

It is gone, right?
