1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup milk
2 cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 to 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
chopped nuts or mini marshmallows, if desired
In a 2-quart saucepan, heat chocolate, sugar, milk, cream
and vanilla until chocolate is melted. Cool. Pour the mixture
into a blender and process until smooth. Add chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts
Bring the heavy cream to a simmer in a heavy-bottom saucepan
over medium heat. Whisk together maple syrup, cornstarch, and
egg yolks. Pour about 1/3 of the hot cream into the syrup
mixture, then pour the syrup mixture into the remaining cream
in the saucepan. Heat over medium low heat, stirring constantly,
until hot and thickened slightly. Do not let boil. Strain into

News from Possum Waller

Possum Waller is moving the International Headquarters up the road…yep
all of it. Pretty much out grown this place, so picked out a new one,
place, right on the edge of some nice woods and very quiet. Farther away

from the “Big City” and all it’s nasty problems. So over the next month
so this big event will take place. I will try not to interrupt you
reading pleasure
a whole lot, but it may happen. So thanks for reading this past 15 years
so and I hope I can keep it going a few more.
