Tasty Tuesday–Christmas Baking 2012

It was another busy season of baking in our household. This year we may have set a new family record…we baked around 24 dozen cookies (and gave most of them away, thankfully…I don’t need that kind of¬†temptation!). We also made two trays of Christmas cracker candy, two bags of chocolate dipped pretzel rods, half white chocolate and half semi-sweet, and about six dozen Oreo truffles, half mint and half regular (I went through about 2 1/2 pounds of Baker’s chocolate making the pretzels and truffles!). I think I’ll be sweeping up sprinkles until next Christmas, and I may smell like frosting and/or chocolate until Valentine’s Day, but we had a lot of fun!
