Countdown Podcast #14- 372 Days to Go!

Podcast #14- MMM… Chocolate! – Click to hear this week’s podcast.

Today we get into the spirit of candy!  Basically all this Easter candy has us thinking ahead to Christmas confections.  There is a lot to discuss when thinking of Christmas Candies.  What kind do you like?  To give or to keep?  Homemade or store purchased?  We are in agreement that often the best choice for giving chocolate and other treats at the holidays is to make it at home.  This can be quite easy and in many cases more economical than the store-bought treats.  Natalie will be sharing some great and simple recipes later this week.  Jeremy will be working on his new peanut butter ball recipe.  When your delicious treats are finished the final step is the presentation.  What container will you choose?  Remember secret #10- Keep it Simple as a guide.  Take time during Easter to practice  your candy making skills for Christmas 2012- your family and friends will thank you!

    I was thinking that very thing about the Reese’s Egg. I missed the pumpkin, so I’ll need to keep an eye out around Halloween.

  3. Susan says:

    Don’t forget the chocolate covered Oreo’s! Another one is the white chocolate covered Nutter Butters. My coworker also decorates them as snowmen. That requires a little more effort but makes a great display.

    I’m using the Christmas card boxes for my fudge this year!

  5. Susan says:

    Remember the year I poured fudge into Christmas cookie cutters? I still think it was a clever idea but the presentation wasn’t that great!

    Music is a nice touch!
