Hello, friends! Christmas is just around the corner, and I wanted to give you the perfect gift idea to give to family & friends. Annnnnd this is also a tradition you might want to start as a family as well. Recently, I received the book Lieutenant Terry’s Christmas Fudge. Annnnnd I could not put it down. I read the entire book the day it came in the mail. It was that good! It is based on the true story of Lt. Wendell B. Terry who survived a horrific plane crash, and then he survived time spent as a prisoner of war in Germany during WW II. It’s a story of faith, service & miracles.
Lieutenant Terry’s Christmas Fudge is written by one of my favorite authors, Gerald N. Lund. He is also the same person who wrote The Work & the Glory series which I love as well. He has an amazing ability to bring stories to life. Here’s a little bit more details about this amazing book:
On a mission to bomb a French bridge and slow down Hitler’s army, U.S. bomber pilot Lt. Wendell B. Terry miraculously survived a harrowing parachute jump after his plane took a direct hit from enemy ground fire. Captured, Terry found himself in a German POW camp for Christmas. He shared an 18-by-24 foot cement room with 23 prisoners of war. He lived with a dirt floor, no heat to ward off the bitter cold, one small window, and not much to do except use his artistic ability to document his life in the camp in a journal he received from the Red Cross. Those illustrations, created by Lt. Terry during his incarceration, are reproduced in this heartwarming true story of the joy of sharing what little you have even in the most dire of circumstances, beautifully retold by master storyteller Gerald N. Lund.
To give this book as a gift this holiday season, print out this Christmas Fudge recipe card. I cut it out using a paper trimmer then I glued it onto some scrapbook paper.
Stick the recipe card inside a baking dish with 3 cups of chocolate chips, 1 cup of pecans & a 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk.
Then add Lieutenant Terry’s Christmas Fudge, and now you have an amazing gift to give!
Of course, you’ll want a copy for yourself. You can pick up your copy here.
Annnnnd this fudge recipe is yummy! Be sure to try it out. 🙂
