Today the kids and I are making candy (or trying to!)
We made home-made marshmallows from Barb Vlack’s famous recipe.
So far these are delicious!
Barb recommends that you taste test often for quality control purposes, and we have been!
They have been dusted with powdered sugar and now are waiting to set up more so that we can cut them into cubes.
We made turtles – or rather, I should say Munchie and Mini-me made a whole herd of turtles!
First a layer of chocolate with pecan legs, heads, and pretzel tails.
Then a layer of home-made microwave caramel.
Then the last layer of chocolate. Funny how some of them are hiding their heads, some have no tails…….
Hmmm, these look GOOD!
We also made pretzels with Rolo candies melted on top. I am sure these have a name, but I have no idea what the name is. See those holes in the tray? Taste testing….
Some have pecans and some don’t. Mini-me doesn’t like pecans, so we did more without than we did with.
We still have more home-made caramels to make, Vanilla Oreo Balls, butter mints, and some other stuff, but I am plumb bushed for the day!
