Baking Day Recipes and a Christmas tag

this past saturday was Baking Day 2010.
like usual... we had a great time!

we thought we'd share the recipes of just a few of the treats we made this year.

White Chocolate Popcorn
2 large bowls of white popcorn (air popped)
1 bag of white candy melts chocolate (melted)
candy melts chocolate to drizzle in your color of choice

Pour half of the melted chocolate into each of the 2 bowls of popcorn.
 It will not seem like enough chocolate but continue to stir (for a few minutes) until the popcorn is just coated (too much chocolate will make your popcorn soggy).
Before your popcorn dries, spread it out onto some wax paper.
After it is dry, melt your chocolate to drizzle and pour it into a Ziploc bag.
Cut a small hole in the corner of the bag and drizzle the colored chocolate over your popcorn.
Let it dry again and bag it up into small cellophane bags or bags of your choice.

Mom's Fudge {aka... See's Fudge}

2 jars marshmallow cream
2 (12oz) bags of semi sweet chocolate chips
4 1/2 c sugar
2 Tbsp. vanilla
1 can evaporated milk
2 cubes of butter
2 c chopped pecans or walnuts

First boil sugar, butter, and milk for 10 minutes on medium hear, stirring.  Remove from heat: add chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, nuts and vanilla. Stir until mixed and color is even. Pour into containers of your choice.

 Pretzel Hugs
bag of mini pretzels
candy cane Hershey kisses
red and green m + m's

preheat oven to 200 degrees
place a layer of pretzels on a wax paper covered cookie sheet
top each one with a kiss
bake for about four minutes until the kisses are really soft
immediately place two m + m's on each one
place in freezer to set
