Take that dreaded Fruitcake under the tree and shove it: into melted CHOCOLATE! You'll be so glad you did! Today is National Fruitcake Toss Day! At my house, the really bad fruitcakes go right outside to the birds. They’ve told me they LOVE citron and green cherries! And, whether it’s birds or mice or nut-hungry squirrels, the cakes always seem to disappear, right down to the last crumb.
But the middle-of-the-road fruitcakes, the ones I can’t quite get myself to share with my animal friends (or, even worse, re-gift) – what do I do with those?
I eat them. But not before performing a little black magic on them – in the form of dark chocolate.
