Now we just have to figure out how to give those to people without making a huge mess.
The second recipe we've done today that I can't wait to gorge myself on is peppermint bark found here: http://www.joyofbaking.com/candy/PeppermintBark.html. This is what our finished product looks like so far:
One little note on this recipe, it says in the end to "break the bark into small irregular pieces." That is way easier said than done. We accomplished breaking it up by chopping at it with a huge knife, it doesn't just simply "break up." Tastes delish though!
We're also making regular fudge from Mike's old timey recipe book that he loves so much and white chocolate macadamia nut cookies that we admittedly bought pre-made dough for. But I think we should still get credit for baking them since I bought them from a client to help her son go to camp. Good deed outweighs laziness right?
Anyways, enjoy and happy holidays!
