And now, the actual 2019 candy and kitchen gifts lists
First, the candy list. Below you see my actual list.
We only made about half of what I had listed. Mr. T made several batches of Heavenly Delight, and I made a batch of Arlene's Easy Fudge and one of Special Holiday Fudge. The other items didn't get made. I bought the orange candy slices but ended up not using them. We had some of the chocolate-dipped orange slices in the freezer from last year, and they were still delicious, so didn't need to make more.
Now, for the kitchen gifts list.
I tried a different recipe for the Chex mix, thinking it might be more like the kind my great-aunt used to make for us. I was underwhelmed with the result. Next year I want to try a recipe that is spicy and incorporates beef jerky. Think it might be a real hit with the people I give snack mixes to. We will see.
It's great to plan, but I always like to also make good note of what worked and what didn't. It really helps with planning for the next Christmas.
