Friendship Fudge Ingredients:
Mix in a gallon ziplock bag:
4 cups powdered sugar
3 ounces of softened cream cheese
1/2 cup softened margarine
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
Decide ahead of time which five main points you'd like to discuss during your lesson. Label each ingredient with one of the five points and use the mixing of the ingredients as the scaffolding for your lesson.
During your lesson make the fudge by mixing the ingredients together and by squeezing the bag and passing it around the group for more mixing as you discuss friendship, teamwork, commitment, service, being part of a group, temple work, the body of Christ, magnifying callings, etc -- the possibilities are endless. When the ingredients are well mixed together, roll the fudge into a log, slice, and serve.
(You may need extra powdered sugar to roll the log, or you can eat it with spoons right out of the bag. )
(This object lesson would be especially effective if you called members of the class beforehand to bring an ingredient or two. If you have a large class, some could bring measuring spoons. If someone forgets something, discuss what happens if a tool or ingredient is missing, but don't embarrass anyone. ~Jenny)
