Chocolate- Dipped Candy Cane Grahams

Today I made Chocolate- Dipped Candy Cane Grahams, and I got to eat my first candy cane in almost a year! Chocolatey peppermint goodness is always great… and on a graham cracker? Even better!!! Only 3 ingredients. If you love peppermint like me, add some peppermint extract to the melted chocolate.

Edible Santa Suit Candy Cups and a Holiday GIVEAWAY!

In between working in the candy kitchen, we've taken time to go do some fun activities; we've decorated a gingerbread house, made caramels with friends, played bingo (I won!) , shopped a lot, and even found time to see Santa. This past Saturday we even volunteered at a parade and holiday festival then took a class and made a fleece blanket and pillow before coming home to package more chocolates. Yesterday we spent a very full day in the candy kitchen working 14 hours and will have an equally busy day today. Whew, I'm exhausted. Last week, during a few free hours, I had some fun experimenting in the kitchen and created some sweet treats for Christmas including these completely edible Santa Suit Candy Cups.
