Forget the icecream!

I know what you're all thinking.....Boy, she really stinks at blogging, but don't fret! We haven't died yet! We've been really busy (just not with anything exciting), and I just don't know what to blog about..................UNTIL NOW! By looking at this pic you can probably guess what the C house has on the brain............................................ Yummy, scrumpdiddilyumpsious (?) CHOCOLATE! We spent all last weekend prepping and then dipping about 50 pounds of chocolate. Forget the icecream, ice cubes, juices, chicken or any frozen food for that matter. The Chocolates have taken over the freezer. Who needs to make dinner, right? Just have some homemade chocolates! We made all the ooey,gooey centers one day and then dipped them ALL a couple of days later! It took us from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. last Saturday to dip them all and let them set. Let me reassure you.... it was worth every minute! My dad-in-law makes a melt in your mouth caramel that is to die for! Just ask my hips, they'll testify for you! :) We split the goods between 3 families and we each took around 15 pounds of chocolates home. We've got the sweets covered in our food storage, so if a disaster strikes, just come find us for your sugar fix. We've got you covered (anything for a small fee, right?). We have chocolate filling our freezer with little wiggle room for the real food, but hey, it's once a year. That's what I say. Thanks Mom and Dad M for teaching us how to make chocolates. We look forward to next year!!!!(wink, wink)

Our candy guinea pigs (adrienne, and Camille) haven't died yet, so I'm guessing we passed the chocolate-making test. I love this episode of I love Lucy, so I had to post the pic. Funny, funny! Chocolate, chocolate, everywhere! Do you know any good holiday treat/candy recipes? I'd love to hear!

Take care,
