Big storm’s coming…and I’m bummed

Not because we’re expecting snow and ice in Houston, but because my first attempt at cake balls will go unconsumed for a few days. And I had such a good time making them. They smell so good. They’re made with dark chocolate cake with some coffee in it, a tub of dark chocolate fudge frosting and some miniature chocolate chips, then dipped in Ghiradelli dark chocolate chips. My house smelled like a fudge factory yesterday, and it was AWESOME! I was supposed to host a Super Bowl themed Bunco party for friends tonight, but we’ve decided to postpone until the storm passes. We tend to get a little paranoid down here in the deep South. It’s not that we’re afraid to drive on ice as much as it’s that we don’t know HOW to drive on ice. We just don’t get much down here. In our 21 years in Houston, we’ve only had a few rare snow flurries. The last ice I remember was Thanksgiving 1989. We’re not equipped for this kind of weather. But fear not…we’re stocked up on toilet paper, food, hot beverages, candles, and blankets so we’re prepared to stay in until it passes. It’s a good excuse to snuggle, anyway. Until then, the cake ball footballs are going into an airtight container in the back of the fridge. I sure hope they keep until next Thursday. I’d hate for The Complete Package and I to have to eat 15 of these over the weekend. That would be horrible…with a cup of coffee…and some vanilla ice cream. Tragic, really.

The best kind of football - a dark chocolate one!
