I'm going to assume both "foggy" and "fight" are typos.

I'm in agreement with Andy. Mark, if you are close friends with this other individual, maybe she's the person to which you should pose the question, rather than a group of strangers on a cooking forum. She might wholeheartedly accept your proposition, or she might give you a frosty response. If the latter, then I would simply acquiesce and let her have the dessert spotlight. After all, a Christmas get together is about more than "bounty and choices." It's also about family and friends, and why risk ruining a friendship?

On the other hand, if she thinks it's a good idea to have dessert options, I would still be careful not to outdo her Christmas pudding, especially if it's a tradition, as you say. Maybe something light and unassuming, such as cookies, would be suitable.

I'm learning quickly why so many complain about auto correct.

Charlie,

I'm sad to say that truffles are a thing of the past for me.

This truffle recipe is a bit unusual in that it does not use melted chocolate. I like it because it uses ingredients that can easily be kept on hand, it also appeals to my frugal nature.
