Jimmy had never seen Love Actually before so we watched it last weekend. I remember thinking that it was a mostly cute movie and I sort of liked it but then we watched it again and it is truly a terrible movie.
Here’s what’s up:
1. Colin Firth. I’m with those kids: I hate Uncle Jamie. You’re RUBBISH
3. Liam Nelson and Game Of Thrones kid. Do not ever re-enact Titanic. Never ever. So gross.
4. Sexpot secretary – I’m thinking about Snape with his clothes off and it’s so so awful. Aim higher!
Honestly there is only one thing that I like about this movie. Natalie’s nephew – the octopus.
If you want an amazing Christmas movie – find Christmas in Connecticut. It’s the FUCKING BEST!
Ok! Hi! I don’t know the first thing about rum balls. They’re Christmas classics right??? So I found an Aunt Martha recipe and gave it my best shot:
6 oz semi sweet chocos
1-1/2 sticka butter
1/2 cuppa brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cuppa flour
Ok! First things first – make a double boiler happen. That’s a bowl on top of a pot of simmering water. Melt your choco and your butter in said boiler until melty. Mix this mess with all the rest of these things and bake in a brownie tray at 350 for 12 min. (You’re basically making brownies here….).
Cool these brownies in the fridge post-bake. Remember that bottle of rum you bought in 2002 and never opened? Get 1/3 cup of that junk and throw it into a mixer with small chunks of your brownie business and mix it up until it forms a giant rum soaked brownie lump. Then roll balls of this shit in disco sprinkles and chill your moist balls for an hour – A FULL HOUR!
Listen. I actually did a half batch with rum and the other batch with bourbon. (Not great). Rita thinks maybe peppermint schnapps or a butterscotch schnapps. Really any choco-friendly booze will work here. But if you’re hell-bent on rum balls – this is the what’s-what.
