Making Candy!

The night before our vacation we decided to make "hard" candy and suckers. I had never made any nor had I ever attempted to make any, but what the children ask for...they usually get.

The big surprise was how simple it was and how involved Mr. Chad was...LOL. We made summer- themed suckers in grape and apple flavors and cracked hard candy in the same, but we powdered the candy in confectionery sugar. It was candy bliss from start to finish.

I have to admit...they were pretty good, too...and from the happiness and glee spewing forth from all of us in the probably would have thought we discovered the cure to cancer...ok, so not that jubilant...but close.

Mrs. B :o)
