Eat an Elf Today

Not long ago, Sisters and Brothers, your Chocolate Priestess has a coupon for an on-sale item that she has not had in years.  This was the Keebler "E.L.Fudge Double Stuffed Cookies".

Each cookie is 2.25 inches long and 1.6 inches thick.  Nutritionally, watch out for these.  2 cookies = one serving.  Each serving has 180 calories, 3.5g saturated fat, <5mg cholesterol, 95mg sodium, 1g fiber, 13g sugars, 2g protein and 2% of the daily iron an adult needs.  They also contain wheat and soy of those are allergens for you.  While these may be cute and tasty, watch how many you eat in a day.  I shared mine with my entire family and ate only 4 cookies out of the entire 12oz package.


I never noticed or similar did not remember that these come in four shapes of four different characters: Ernie, Elwood, Fast Eddie and Buckets who I hope you can make out in the photograph.  They each have a saying on the back shortbread cookie: “Dunk head first,” “From the Hollow Tree,” “Do you believe in elves?” and “Elves Exist! 

Inside is a chocolate cream that is firm but overwhelmed by the cookie until you chew it for a while.  Really more for shortbread lovers than for chocolate lovers.  This is a very cute little treat though that I think we can all appreciate for fun every now and again but just not chocolaty enough for The Chocolate Cult to fully endorse.

Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
