Wordful Wednesday - Making Christmas Candy

Over the weekend, the kids helped me make candy for our upcoming Candy/Cookie Day. We made four different kinds of candy.



Allyson stirring up the pot of chocolate and cocoa puff cereal.



Allyson unwrapped a lot of 3 Muskateers wrappers to make one of the candies.



Adam took on the job of placing the candies in the baskets so they could be safely stored. He was very careful with the candy and placed them just so. As you can tell from the chocolate on his face, he sampled some of the goods as well.



Emma and Allyson made chocolate and vanilla dipped pretzels.

I've never dabbled into the candy business too much. You make it look fun!

Candy is easy for me to ruin. Plus the little ones over here like stuff they can roll out, taste, or touch with their hands. And, since I'm not nice enough to let them make a melted chocolate covered mess more than like once every six years, we sorta try to stick to easy roll out cookies and the like. But, maybe when they are older. Of course by then they probably won't want to be bothered with making stuff with me. Looks fun, though:)

Great photos. I always mess up candy. I guess a thermometer would be good :)

I LOVE making candy!!! One day I want to try pulled sugar candy, like homemade candy canes and whatnot. But I have to wait until my kids are older....I don't want to mess with all that hot sugar with kids underfoot.
