Yule Logs

First off, I must say it is GREAT to have my daughter home for the holidays. She has this strange desire to learn how to cook, so I happily turn her loose in the kitchen. However, she does come up with some odd concoctions. You may recall our unintentional pornographic baking disaster from last month...

Well, this time she chose to bake some "Holiday Triple Chocolate Yule Logs".  This is what they look like in the cookbook...

And this is what they looked like after my daughter substituted dark chocolate for white chocolate...

Hmmm. Remind you of something? Any dog owners out there want to venture a guess? No no, D-Meister, don't eat that!

Geez!  I don't know how many times I've told these kids not to put strange things in their mouths when they were growing up.  Now they are all grown up and they still don't listen to anything I say.  Well, at least the yule logs looked a little more edible once the sprinkles went on...

ROFL! So the neighbor made us a tray of cookies the same as your boob ones and I was laughing so hard my mom didn't know why. Those are really "yule logs"

A girl after my own heart... This gave me a good laugh. I'm an expert at cooking and baking mishaps. Really, all that matter is whether they tasted good and if you had a good time making them.

They may photograph like bad stuff but I'll bet they tasted GOOD!!

Yes, they do taste good. I thanked my daughter profusely for baking them. I'm not picking on her. Believe me, she is in on this joke. She started it!

Well, they LOOK good with the sprinkles on them! Sometimes my cookies look strange, too, but everybody eats them anyway! :-)

Yeah, they look like "some kind" of logs alright.

It's getting past that first bite that's difficult. :D

That's hilarious! As long as they taste good, maybe you could eat them blind folded.

Reminds me of that terrible kids joke:

What did Tigger find in the potty?

(I'll let you fill in the rest)

My homemade pretzels suffer from the same lumpy disease. Fortunately taste isn't effected by appearances!

LMAO! OMG! That is too hilarious!

Hahahaah! Oh that is priceless!

I've had a few baking disasters myself, but never tried yule logs. Oh...the look on my hubby's face if I gave him one of these (without sprinkles) and didn't explain....

LOL! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who has trouble making it look like what's in the cookbook. :)
