Christmas Snow

It is winter here.  It has been snowing and raining with rising mists and fog, and it's Christmas.  I was remembering Christmases from my past.  There were green ones,  white ones, and some foggy and dismal ones.  Actually, I was remembering going with my family in search of the perfect Christmas tree when I was a youngster.  It was always very cold, but we were warm in the car because we were packed in like sardines.  We sang Christmas Carols, and on one special night we listened to a radio broadcast of an audio segment from the movie "The Wonderful World of the Brother's Grimm."  It was the story of the shoemaker and the elves and the Christmas gifts that they gave.  It was a magical night.  But in remembering that night, I also remember that while we were out among the Christmas trees in the tree-lots, it was snowing, and my brother and I caught snowflakes on our tongues. It was one of those times that the flakes were huge and just floated slowly down to earth. They were cool, and immediatly melted in our mouths.  That happy memory inspired me and Christmas Snow Weecakies were born.  Each Weecakie is a chocolate cake truffle, dipped in cool mint milk chocolate and dipped a second time in dark chocolate that drizzles down the sides. They are topped off with a chocolate snowflake-all guaranteed to melt cooly in your mouth just like those snowflakes did in mine long ago. They also pair perfectly with my Christmas Holly Weecakie from last year.  Have a Happy Christmas making happy memories.  
Merry Merry!
