Needless to say, as much as I try to involve my kids in the process, it usually ends up being me doing the whole thing by myself. They just slap their name on it, and call it good.
This year, I found the biggest most beautiful apples ever. So I had to do caramel apples.
I dipped them in caramel, then rolled them in crushed Heath candybars, then drizzled chocolate over them. It's harder than you'd think to drizzle chocolate over them. Trying to keep the chocolate thin and runny was a problem. Anyone know of any tricks?
Of course I had to dress them up in cellophane and a bow. Not only to add to it, but it took away from any imperfections, i.e. drizzled chocolate blobs.
And I couldn't stop there. Oh no, I had to package the already packaged package. It's supposed to be a broom. The stick is the handle, the shredded paper bag is the end of the broom. Get it.
Regardless of what need I am trying to fulfill, it's one more thing I can check off my to-do list.
