Gingerbread Caramels and Ninjas

 
I don't know who to thank...
Martha for the recipe
or Des for telling me about them.
 
I am completely addicted to these
 
 
They are pretty easy to make,
you do have to be patient and
 let them get to the correct temp.
 
You need a candy thermometer, definitely.
 
My first batch was too soft,
soft and delicious,
 it was a gingerbread caramel sauce,
 not exactly what I wanted.
Well, I wanted to drink it,
but didn't. 
 
This batch is still a little on the soft side,
but totally wrapable and divine.
 
 
The recipe makes a bunch.
I think I got 170 caramels out of the pan.
 
 
I've eaten 4 this morning,
just to make sure they are holding up.
 
 
 
 
Getting treats ready. 
Need to put some finishing touches on these.
 
 
Another great gingerbread project is
this fun kit from
Cost Plus World Market. 
But I'm making

Ninja sugar cookies
for Cub Scouts to decorate.
Nothing like having sugared-up Scouts.
 
For a brief moment, I thought I should decorate a ninja in a Boy Scout Shirt for each boy. 
 
Yeah...
that moment passed pretty quick.
 
 
 
What are you
working on today?

What's in Your Stocking?

 
At our house,
Santa needs a little help.
 
We have rather large Christmas stockings.
 
 
 
 
So I tuck in a few goodies too,
just to help Santa out.
 
One year, I,
not Santa,
got confused
 and had more fun stuff for one child
 than for another and
 with these big stockings, you notice.
 
So....my plastic messy bag system,
 was just not working.
 
So I made stocking bags.
 
I used this tutorial and
 just made the bags longer.
 
They are even lined.
Not sure that's really needed,
but why not?
 
 
Pretzels are for my husband,
the yellow is for my crafty blonde daughter.
 
 
Oldest daughter likes pink and ice cream.
Youngest is rockets. 
Teen boy is argyle (it's hiding).
 
 
I collect items throughout the year
and this gives a place to put them,
and know exactly what I have and
how much for each person.
 
 
If only the rest of Christmas
was this easy!
 
Happy Shopping!
