Wednesday was our Annual Cookie/Candy Making Day. I have been doing this with my mom and girls for years.
The last several years we have invited various friends and neighbors to join us and it has become a much anticipated and looked forward to event. It is a bit trickier to do now that my girls are away at school and we have to wait until they are home but it is still as much fun. And a big mess too!!
Thankfully my sweet friend Dyann showed up and just started doing dishes!
We had fudge makers and caramel makers. Although it was a bad day for fudge.
Everyone pitched in and helped and it was fun!
Clark helped out by doing some of the test tasting.
I only wish I had more than one oven. Two would be great but I’m thinking I could really use three!!
The best part though? Spending time with my mom, friends and my girls!
We took a lunch break and enjoyed a Yummy Bowl!
We went through copious amounts of flour, sugar, butter and cream but oh we had fun!
The bakers and candy makers took a game break.
And there was a knitting lesson going on too.
The next morning I got up and made 24 of these lovelies – peppermint bark caramel apples!!
Here’s a link to the cute tags that I downloaded for free and printed.
Just two more days – are you ready?
