(1) Holiday Chocolate Roll

8 lg. eggs
1 cup sugar
8 oz. German sweet chocolate bar
2 tbsp. water
quart heavy whipping cream
1 cup nuts (optional)
Powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Separate eggs. Melt chocolate bar with 2 tbsp. water in microwave. Let cool for ten minutes. Beat egg yolks with one cup sugar. They should be pale yellow in color and have fluffy consistency. Add egg mixture to chocolate. In separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks are formed. Combine with other mixture. Grease bottom of jelly roll pan. Place a piece of wax paper onto pan making sure sides and bottom are covered. Pour batter into pan. Bake for 18 minutes. A toothpick inserted will come out clean when done. Let cool for ten minutes. Place one dry kitchen towel and two damp ones over top of roll. Refrigerate for at least one hour. Remove cake from refrigerator and remove towels. Dust roll with powdered sugar and nuts if desired. Red and green icing may applied in a criss cross pattern after chocolate roll cools.

(2) Grandma’s Fudge

2/3 cup cocoa
3 cups sugar
1 cups Minot
2 tbsp. butter
tsp. vanilla

Measure 1 cup Minot then fill remaining half cup with water. Put all ingredients into medium sauce pan. On high heat bring mixture to a full boil for ten minutes. Turn down temperature to medium. Stir constantly to avoid mixture sticking to bottom of pan. After ten minutes, take a drop of the batter and drop into cold water. If a small ball forms, the fudge is ready. If not, cook on medium for another fifteen minutes. Remove from heat. Add 2 tbsp. butter and tsp. vanilla. Keep stirring. Put pan into sink filled half way with cold water. If mixture should harden, add leftover Minot to reverse the process. Spoon teaspoonfuls of fudge onto wax paper and let harden.

Half-gallon of fat-free vanilla ice cream
1 tbsp. sugar

Lime wedges

Mix entire containers of both bottles of lemon-lime soda and lime juice. Place in one quart tray. Freeze soda until mushy consistency is formed. Beat egg white slightly. Add egg mixture to lime mixture. Freeze again with one last stir making sure mixture is firm. Remove tray from freezer after one hour. Breakup consistency with a fork just before serving.
