Have I told you I finally have a permanent store to work in? Well, I do. I also got a promotion at the same time. So, I'm the manager of about 17 people in my department. And of course this happened right before Christmas. My first Christmas in this district, so I really don't know how they handle things around here. My last few managers were pretty generous, and I would love to be, the problem is I didn't anticipate this and haven't really budgeted for it. However, I really want to do something. I found a small trinket for each employee ( a slinky! doesn't everyone love a slinky?) and I decided to make sweets. Its a bribe, so they will like me and listen to me. I'm crossing my fingers it works.
Making sweet treats before Christmas is a festive thing to do. I remember my momma doing it, I enjoy doing it, and it puts me in a Christmas-y mood. Fair enough?
The blogging world is full of recipes and deceptively delicious photos. They all make it look so easy. So I chose a few recipes to try.
- Toffee (found here)
- Chocolate covered pretzels
- Chocolate chip cookie dough truffles (found here)
- Classic fudge (found here) ( I use milk chocolate chips)
- Sugar cookies with icing

My refrigerator is still full with the sweets that won't fit. I wished my Hubby worked out of the home so I could send some to his work. It looks like chocolate is for dinner this week. Anyone else eating chocolate three meals a day?
