Candy






Christmas Candy was made in mass quantity at our house yesterday. My lovely friend Heather came over and we rolled stuff in chocolate till we couldn't stand the sight of it anymore. We made five different kinds of yummy treats. Corn Flake Candy, Oreo Truffles, Peanut Butter Balls, Tootsie Roll Fudge and Martha Washington's. OMG. I think I'm addicted to candy making. This might replace the cookie making I like to do each year because I found this to be easier and more fun in the long run. We made a big mess, had all the candy made, put everything in tins and were cleaned up by six pm. I was very proud of us for our first candy making try. Everything turned out SO yummy too. I'd be happy to share recipes with anyone who wants them. Now if I can just keep myself and Hazel from eating all of it before the actual day of Christmas, we'll be set.
This week I have to finish up last minute gifts, grocery shop and clean the house. Oh and wrap presents. I keep saying I'm going to do it every night but then I put it off. I'm better under pressure anyways.
Alright. That's all from me today. I'm off to drink coffee and plot my course for today.
More soon, nm

I had so much fun making candy with you! We should have baking days more often. Want anything special from Hawaii? I'm sure I'll find something cute for you and Hazel. I've already looked online at cute little muu muus for little girls :)
