Saturday was candy making day at our church for
all the women that wanted to learn. Here I am
with the frozen insides of the Coconut Mounds.
I prepped as much as I could ahead of time so
we could spend the day just having fun.
We made Chocolate Billionaires, Mounds,
Caramel Corn, Fudge, White Bark w/Candy
Canes and Peanut Brittle.
The fudge was really popular, I think there
were 3 different kinds. Our pastor's wife
brought all the supplies for this and even
brought her microwave from home so
there was no waiting time to make the
This was the fun part--dipping in the chocolate!
It worked well to melt the chocolate ahead
of time that morning in crockpots.
Everybody got involved so they understood
how to make the candy, step by step.
Lots of nuts to chop...
We made several bowls of caramel corn and filled bags
to take home with the other candy.
I found white shirt boxes for pretty cheap in
the grocery store and they worked really
well to hold the finished candy to take home.
We lined them with waxed paper and the
green notecard you see on top is a recipe
book with all of the day's recipes inside.
We made them with a ring in the corner
so we can do this again next year with
new recipes and just add them to it.
We ordered pizza for lunch and everyone
said they had a great time. We had no child
care (on purpose) so the mom's of young
kids could have a day to themselves to
enjoy some time away.
Tomorrow I will post the recipe for the
Peanut Brittle. Talk about easy! It is
super buttery and makes a great gift
at Christmas time.
