more craftiness

oh that martha. these pine cones are from her november issue of living. it took me a few attempts to get it right as evidenced by the progression. but they turned out cute, i think.

candy attempt

i want to make edible gifts this christmas and this was my first attempt. i could have gotten more out of the batch, but who can pass up eating oreos?

right now they look like poop.

i got a nice steam facial out of the double boiler while i worked.

lesson learned: don't let the balls cool on a baking rack. the chocolate dried them onto the rack and they cracked when i pulled them off. also i think i'll use dark or bitterweet chocolate instead of milk.
