Calories don't count till January - then they double

I've been working in the kitchen, all my live long days...

Today I have made:
Caramel Popcorn Twists
Nuts & Bolts
Butter Tarts
Buckeyes (the peanut butter ball part anyway)
Toblerone Shortbread
Crab dip
Taco scoop
Spinach dip
Liver spread (don't knock it till you've tried it)
Green onion dip

Still to come:
Bon Ton Tarts
another batch of Toblerone Shortbread
dipping the Buckeyes

Oreo Fudge

I think I've made 6 batches of the Twists. The teachers all got some, I had a secret snack exchange, a batch for the lady who drives Josh and Sarah to is a favourite. And, so freakin' yummy that it should be illegal.

Go ME!!

PS how do I make those caramel popcorn twists?

It's a recipe right on the back of the Old Dutch Popcorn Twist bag. It's genius! If you can't find O.D (ironic) and need to use Lays...the recipe is:

(use a decent sized pot)
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup

Melt that all together until it's a nice caramelly consistency and then add 1 tsp of baking soda (this will cause it to foam, which is why it needs to be in a bigger pot)

Pour over caramel twist that you've put in a roaster. Bake at 250 for 45 minutes, stirring every 15.



Have a Merry Christmas my friend - I love you :)
