Clearing up from FNaF misconceptions

I’ll do it in bullet point form to make it easier to understand.

1. I do not hate the game Five Nights at Freddy’s and I am not shitting on the game Five Nights at Franky’s. If you watch me actually play the game I try the new game and figure out what it’s about with the help of two vets, learn and appreciate the lore, and find myself enjoying the game despite the pre-meditated notion to want to dislike the game because of how a loud sub-group of the FNaF fandom behaves (toxic af). I put aside my differences with the crazy fanbase of the game (again not everyone, if you are not batshit bonkers then I am not talking about you), found myself to be enjoying it, even though I did not find myself as startled by the content as others would consider proper. 

 2. With the evidence as presented here, I would like to further state that in the previous Tumblr post I never once discredited the game Five Nights at Frumpy’s, but moreso the inane concept that individuals are expecting a person to force false reactions towards content to appease desires that he, given the current context that the individual has already stated, finds no terror in the subjected video game entertainment, is purely, and utterly, batshit ludicrous and I will poke fun at that notion till I am too old to care anymore. (Yes that was a long butchered run-on sentence and I am damn proud of my knife-work)

 3. In conclusion, y'all have a nice day, but please refrain from putting words in someone’s mouth who is fully able to speak their peace on the matter like the big boy he is - and though you may see yourself as some kind of holy crusader for your video game fandom, you’re making yourself out to be the chihuahua that just, won’t, shut, up. And that’s no good.

We all know just how important acorns have become to Bilbo Baggins and to us as a fandom. I couldn’t think of a more fitting object to fold into the pages of this movie tie-in version of Tolkien’s The Hobbit, creating a piece of displayable art perfect for any Hobbit fan.

#Non-Myst - Edible Chocolate Books

Before you begin: If you haven’t made modelling chocolate before or haven’t melted chocolate, you should read my chocolate making tutorial. All brands of white chocolate or white candy melts have varying amounts of cocoa butter or oil, so this recipe is just a guide. You may need to add more or possibly less honey. I used Peters White Caps, which are similar to Merckens Super White Coatings or Wilton White Candy Melts.

Ingredients:

Special Equipment Needed:

  • rolling pin
  • ruler
  • pizza wheel or knife

Instructions:

  1. Melt chocolate or confectionery coating in the microwave or in a double boiler. If using the microwave, heat on high for 25 seconds, then stir. Heat for 20 seconds, then stir vigorously. If needed, heat for 10 second increments, stirring after each until melted. Allow the chocolate to cool to about 91 degrees Fahrenheit, stirring often. If you add the honey when the chocolate is too hot, the cocoa butter or oil will rise to the surface and you will have a greasy mess (if this happens, read this troubleshooting tutorial). If you don’t have a thermometer, test the temperature of the melted chocolate by putting a drop on your lip. It should feel cool. If it’s hot, let it cool longer, stirring often to make sure the chocolate at the edges of the bowl does not harden.
  2. Pour in the honey. Stir until well incorporated. The mixture will become thick very quickly, so scrape the bottom of the bowl to incorporate all of the melted chocolate. Pour mixture out onto a counter top, preferably marble or granite. Knead until glossy and smooth. My hands tend to be rather warm, so I use a plastic bench scraper to help me knead the modeling chocolate, so that I don’t over heat it as this can bring out the oils in the chocolate.
  3. Lightly dust your work surface and a rolling pin with powdered sugar. Roll out the modelling chocolate to about 3/8" thickness. Use a ruler and pizza wheel or knife to cut 1 7/8" x 1 ½" rectangles. Re-roll modelling chocolate as needed to create 12 rectangles.
  4. Unwrap your fruit leather bars and set them, sticky side up, on a cutting board. Use a pizza wheel or knife to cut off the thicker rounded edges. Set one rectangle of white modelling chocolate on the right side of each fruit leather strip. Fold the left side of the fruit leather strip over and press down firmly. I found that the apricot fruit leather was not sticky enough to hold the books together, so I added a bit of honey. These books held together for a while, but did eventually open. The cherry, raspberry, and strawberry fruit leathers were more pliable and more sticky. To ensure the books would stick together, I covered them with some plastic wrap and set a baking sheet on top then added a heavy can to weigh it down. I left the books under this weight for over an hour. None of the books made with the cherry, raspberry, or strawberry leathers came apart even after a few days.
  5. To serve, set the edible books on a wooden cutting board or a serving tray. Store in an airtight container. Do not refrigerate or the fruit leather will harden and dry out. We’ve eaten all but one of the books within a few days, so I really don’t know exactly how long they will keep if stored properly, but I’ll guess about a week. If you do store them for a while, you may want to keep some weight on them, to ensure they will stay closed like a book. (x)
