Up to My Elbows in chocolate

 

 Tis the season!

This is my week long chocolate dipping marathon.  I am literally up to my elbows in heavenly chocolate.



Give me a couple of days and I'll be ready for my annual Janet's Chocolate Giveaway.

You won't want to miss this.  My chocolates are made with local organic cream and my homemade cultured butter.  I order Pecans for Sunnyland Farms in Georgia for the Caramel Pecan Turtles.

Yum!



Enjoy Cyber Monday.

I've got to go...dang...I have chocolate on the keyboard.

  6. Please for the sake of my eyeballs (and stomach) post some of your chocolate recipes. I will have to settle for kerrygold butter and Costco cream...but I think I may break-up with Sees Candy this Christmas if I get a chance to make your chocolates. I should be upset with you that my pants will probably be tighter soon from all your good recipes I have been making (and inhaling)...but my tastebuds adore you and have taken control of the brain. So come April I have some super exercising to do...but for now ANOTHER SKYSCRAPER BISCUIT goes into my mouth and I smile. Springtime Jenny is gonna be pissed at Winter Jenny...but oh well...haha! Thanks for the pictures, recipes and inspiration...yum!

    1. I have been trying to decide if anyone would be interested in candy recipes. I was going to post the recipe for turtles or almond joys, but for the sake of time and the amount of candy I have to make I chose not to. My bad. I am happy to share any of my recipes with you. I know culturing my own butter is a bit much (obsessive according to my family). Amish butter works great if you can find that is has less of a "cow" taste that I get from Kerrygold...my opinion...any unsalted butter works great. I know what you mean, my hips and gut can't take many more chocolates and the dipping has only begun. I sample too many and eat the ugly ones. January is just around the corner. Thank goodness we have January to start new. Just let me know what recipes you would like and I'll send them to you. Email me at simplysogood@hotmail.com

  7. We had a marathon day yesterday and dipped over 400! It was great fun - but would have been even more fun if you'd been there! We have the tempering machine for the entire week - today we'll be dipping nut clusters and lemoncello truffles...the last of our centers! It went waaaaay too fast! Have fun!

    1. I'm so dang jealous. I've been tempering for 3 solid days. Hours and hours of tempering. I still can't believe you can rent a tempering machine. No such luck in Utah. I'm so happy you are having a ton of fun. Next year....

  9. I nearly cried, years ago, when I learned that sometimes the uglies go in the trash. I'm here for you Janet! I'll remove the uglies (if such a thing should happen this year…). ;)

    1. Oh Marilyn, I don't throw the uglies away...worse...I eat them! I'd much rather have them on your hips than mine :)

  10. I am looking forward to your chocolates posts and have been all year. Maybe I'll even win the giveaway this year! Nice to see the sour cream apple pie linked in your last post too. That is one stellar pie, and one spectacular crust!
