"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Use the grated apples if at all possible. I use two kinds of chocolate chips -- mill and semi-sweet, although the semi-sweet and butterscotch chip mix is really good, too. They are slightly crunchy the first day, but after one day in a plastic container, they really soften up. Delicious! I am happy to pass on Grandma's recipe.
