And now . . . on to the weekend happenings. Nope, no quilting this weekend . . . my machine is still getting it's annual checkup so it was the perfect time to crank out some Christmas Chocolates. I started making Christmas Chocolates with my mom 15 years ago. Now I make them with my family.
It is so fun when all of the kids get involved. The little ones throw centers in the chocolate for dipping and the older ones help decorate them. I do all of the dipping and most of the filling making. And the sweetheart is the all around helper to everyone. So fun!!!
We make Chocolate Truffles and Mint Truffles, that my sweetheart insists on having football shaped so he can decorate them with his favorite college teams. We also make Caramels, Almond Joys, Pecan Turtles, and English Toffee.
It was a super productive weekend and we managed to get everything dipped and put into tins ;) Now it is time to start making up some plates for friends and family ;)
Wish I could send chocolates through email. But if you happen to be in the neighborhood of Cedar City Utah, stop on by and come try some ;)
Have a Happy Quilting (or chocolate making, in my case) Day!!
