COLD. That is what it is like this morning!
A perfect day to just stay inside.
Got started on the Christmas candy today. I made the Almond Joy bars. But of course I had an issue right away. My chocolate chips would not melt into the topping. I think it is because they were old chips (bag had been open since who knows when, but the “good til” date was still okay). Frustrating because I had to waste a bunch of ingredients AND wash an extra pan!!! Thankfully, the second time was a charm 🙂
We also made the Peppermint Kisses (and also made some with Rolos this year for Kimm’s mom since she loves them) and the Peanut Butter balls (I used a new recipe this year…mixed in some graham cracker crumbs for texture and used a little less sugar).
Even though it was only a few things…it took up basically the entire afternoon!
We got out grinders to eat (yumm!) and started watching The Holiday. I say “STARTED” because as soon as I got the food in my belly, I became VERY, VERY sleepy. So sleepy in fact that I took about an hour and a half nap…and then I was STILL sleepy!
