Since I began working at 6 a.m. when I woke up, and because I was only gone for an hour for brunch (I promise!), I was done with all my work tasks by 2 p.m. And then it was time for wrapping, making Rachael Ray's five minute fudge and making gift tags for said treats.
|Pour in pan, let cool for 15 min., chill in fridge. Rachel Ray also makes the fudge into an ornate chocolate wreath. Totally unesscessary. Plain ol' square pieces taste just as good with only a fraction of effort.|
|Place squares in plastic baggie, place that in tiny decorated gift bags.|
|Dexter was jealous of all the attention given to baking and unwrapped presents, so he decided to be a present under the tree too.|
Thank goodness for snow, or I would have had to do these unfinished Christmas chores after coming home from work. That five minutes of baking really would have put a dent in my night. Instead, we cozied up on the couch all night and watched Home Alone. Classic.
