Tis the Season: Boodell-Blaker Bakeapalooza!
After Thanksgiving comes my all time favorite time of the year. Christmas-time is here! I love so much about this season. The cold weather, the pretty lights, the family time, ansd especially the cooking. Above all I love celebrating the birth of Jesus. He really IS the reason for the season.
Saturday my sister and I got together for phase one of a ginormous Christmas goodie endeavor. We're on a mission to fill ONE HUNDRED boxes with an assortment of nine different Christmas-time treats.
We each thought of several treats that we wanted to include. Here are the final treats on our list.
Spice Cake Balls
Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies
White Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
White Chocolate Chex Mix
Holiday Rice Crispy Treats
We started with the Oreo Truffles and Cake Balls because they freeze well. We each prepared 400 of our designated type and had them ready to dip. We spent more than six hours dipping more than EIGHT HUNDRED little balls into melted bark coating. At the end of the day it was a success and the whole goodie box task doesn't seem so overwhelming.
This weekend it's time for fudge! I'll be sure to post recipes and
