THE candy weekend

A friend and I meet in Berea at her mom’s house to make Christmas candy each year.  It is a wonderful chance to catch up and cook together.

Here goes: (left to right, top to bottom):

our girls, coconut bonbons, truffles,

haystacks, chocolate-covered pralines, pralines

mock heath bars, peanut brittle, and buckeyes

(not pictured: chocolate fudge and butterscotch fudge)

Here is the room with all of the candy stacked on each other and in the chairs (again the fudge didn’t make it into the picture)…

Bug’s teachers are the main recipients of my portion of these chocolatey-sugary-buttery confections.   We used almost 10 pounds of sugar (mainly the fudge and the brittle), 3 pounds of butter, 5 bags of coconut, and about 10 bags of chocolate chips. MmmmmMMMmmm!
