December 4 - Candy Making

Today was spent making all kinds of delicious chocolate confections. We turned my Mom's house into Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. With Christmas music playing on the radio and all the Christmas lights turned on, we melted pounds and pounds of chocolate, and made all kinds of chocolate confections to give to friends as Christmas gifts. 

Oreos and pretzels were coated in chocolate and sprinkles.  We made trays of peppermint bark, chocolate toffee and chocolate covered peanuts. We also made the cutest candy canes with chocolate Santas, which I think will be delicious with a cup of hot chocolate.

These are the days that I look forward to all year. A chance to spend time with my favorite people, making handmade presents that are made with love and laughter.
