What a fun honor! Queen of the Hambo Hoedown this week!! :) What a perfect week to win...I was so thankful for their challenge that helped me recollect memories of my Grandpa and walk down memory lane. Now I have even further motivation to get my scrapbook pages done! THANK YOU Hambo! :)
Here's the tag I made. And this week their theme is tags, so I'll get to make another tag. Fun!
Last evening I made sponge candy following this recipe. My husband was doubtful that the goodness of sponge candy could be replicated at home...and I was too, truth be told. But after reading the recipe and blog post about her experiences, I felt I had found a winner! And winner it was. Move over Farm & Fleet (that's where I have to buy it locally, but it's fake chocolate coated...ick!). But..........no, I wouldn't go as far as to tell my family's candy shop to move over. Nope...their's is still top-shelf (go, order if you want to see for yourself!!), but it was fun and rewarding to try at home.
I used 2 bags of Ghirardelli milk chocolate baking chips, melted, to coat my sponge pieces.
All boxed up! (ahem, just for ME...makes em' taste even better having such cute packaging)
I found these pretty wintery candy boxes in my stash of containers.
