This is a very old recipe, that my Aunt Isabel (born 1900) used to make every year at Christmas. She made it for as long as I can remember. I was told it was a Methodist tradition. It is a dense, somewhat dry fruitcake, with chocolate bits in it. It is supposed to be sliced very thin. Well... I updated the recipe. I put the ingredients in order and gave better directions. The first time I made it, I was not doing it very smoothly, in fact, it was a disaster! The second time, I actually knew what to do, so here is what I've learned, and I also posted pictures.
