OK enough of the rationalization of goodies. Here is another one that I am not crazy about making and are a time consumer but oh my they are good. Yes you can buy them ready made but just not the same I am thinking.
Now candy making and baking is definitely an art, just like cooking and the kind of art that gets the fingers messy with paint and glue. I love love love to do candy creating and baking but there comes a time, sadly that your body just can't handle a lot of it. So just enjoy looking at it and no calories will fly off the screen and hook itself to you. I do firmly believe though that when you lose weight the same little innocent pounds just hover around you like a little cloud and if you let your guard down-poof it attaches itself back on you. I am not a scientist but do think in my heart that is what happens.
So what is on the agenda for today you ask? Millionaires. A good little combination of pecans, chocolate and carmels. Now that is Eldon's job to unwrap the carmels. I don't count how many is in the package so not sure if some sneak into his mouth while doing that job for me.
The shine on them is the combination of melted chocolate chips, shortening and paraffin. Yes paraffin the kind you can melt and put on top of homemade jelly to seal it. Don't put to much of the parrafin in the melting bowl and it will bind the chocolate perfectly.
I just had to share what the inside looks like. See no calories at all. Sorry Santa had to tell a little story there.
There you go, when it is cold or ugly outside I like to cook and this is my tidbit for today.
Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today . xoxoxox
