Baking Day

Yesterday was our Annual Baking Day!  Lisa and I got an early start down to Mike's with Christmas music in hand for the car ride.  Lisa is great at making the Ritz cracker and peanut butter sandwiches which would later be dipped in chocolate.  We sure enjoyed the warm sun shining in too.

Mike was in charge of dipping the marshmallows in caramel for bunny tails.  These require quite a bit of patience to make.  Lisa and I then dipped them in rice krispies.  I made some notes on the recipe for next year so we remember what works and doesn't work.  The consistency of the caramel is key. 

Caramels are one of my all-time favorites.  I got the recipe from my aunt Darlene several years ago.  We made two batches this year.  Not sure what's going on here.  He's supposed to be wrapping them.  Hmmm....wonder what's in that Casey's mug??

A picture of the finished product. The three of us have lots to share with family, friends, and co-workers.  We'll take a few containers home to share with Mom too.

We had our list and got everything made on it. The cookies still need to be baked and frosted, but they are on the list for another day.

Those goodies look remarkable! I'm happy to be on the receiving end of your fun-filled day.
Hope you were listening to the Merry Sounds of Christmas as you worked.
Now with the snow that's falling, it surely must seem like Christmas is just around the corner.
