Ho, ho, ho, boys and girls, it's time for a little belated holiday cheer! It's VirtuaLUG's 4th annual Secret Santa, where our little group of friends, from all around the globe, draw names and build a gift for one lucky individual. Unfortunately, the postal gorillas did not deliver my gift until the day after Christmas. Fortunately, I love an extended holiday (who doesn't?!) and when it's an awesome gift, from a favorite builder and friend, that's just icing on the ol' Festivus pole! So have a gander, wager a guess on my Private Pere Noel and then head over to the Secret Santa group and check out all of the other fabulous gifts (if you haven't already).
About this creation
My Confidential Kris Kringle wrote the following:
Hans wins the Chopped Challenge to take home the $10,000 prize!
Even though his brownie appeared rather plain at first, it won the judge's hearts with Hans' own 'secret ingredient', sourced from beautiful British Columbia.
This was also the first time in Chopped history that pizza and beer were delivered to the set after the brownies were gone...
So, can you guess my Stealthy Sinterklaas? Here is the list of suspects:

Dave 'Dark Knight' and Devon 'Girl Wonder' Kaleta
Dave 'Steampunk' and Stacy 'Stella' Sterling
Tyler 'Shorty McHoosier' Halliwell
El Barto 'Hermey' Larrow
Chris 'Kung Fu Genie' Phipson
Dennis 'I Love The 80's' Price

Dr. Lee 'Turn And Cough' Jones
Stu 'Emo Mime' Delahay (Delatron 3000)
Don't forget to head over to the Secret Santa group to see the rest of the festive gifts!
Fourth Dimension Commentary: There you have it folks, my little piece of holiday joy from an admired builder. It will now take a place of honor with the other three SS gifts I am blessed to have in my possession. I absolutely love this tradition that we have and look forward to it every year. The only thing greater than receiving a great LEGO gift is building a great LEGO gift for someone you respect and call friend, something I certainly hope to have accomplished this year and in years past. In closing, I hope you all had an ABS filled Holiday Season, whatever you celebrate, and have a healthy and happy coming New Year!~H
OK, for those of you playing at home, time for the big reveal! Woah, keep it in your britches, Mikail downfRee, I'm talking about my Secret Santa builder! With only one correct guess, the builder was none other than Dr. Lee Jones! Ironic that Tyler's one guess that wasn't ME would be correct; congrats, I owe you a cookie at BrickWorld! As for my gift-giver, thank you again for this wonderful gift! And the rest of you, have a healthy and prosperous coming new year!~H
