It was one of the best days to do holiday baking. We had just received a dumping of snow (see previous post) and it looked and felt like the holidays.
MamaSis showed up with all the supplies. Rita paid for them. I planned all of them. It was a 3-way handshake.
But I couldn't show up empty handed so I brought homeade Irish Cream. It started off in our coffee. Then later. Over ice.
We started out making caramels. Those required some focus. Anything requiring a candy thermometer means serious business.
(MamaSis hiney shot.)
Then we moved onto Peanut Butter Kisses. Always requested by Hunkaroonie & Daddio. So we have to make a lot. I mean a lot. Just think... a lot. That's what we made.
(Will someone please sell unwrapped Hershey's Kisses around the holidays. Thanks.)
Next up melt-in-your-mouth-no-need-for-frosting Sugar Cookies.
(If you see some missing in the row above. We tested them. No worries. Ain't nothin but a G-thang. There were so good. So we continued. Baking. Not eating.)
We needed to focus MamaSis, she gets distracted easily. So we gave her the task of Peanut Brittle. She did quite honestly a fantastic job. She's getting domestic and all on us. That there is some mean Peanut Brittle.
By now we needed a break. So we put our feet up. Had some homeade chicken noodle soup. And prepared for the last two recipes.
