Candy Making

Enough with all the training talk. Bring on the holiday Candy :)

Making Turtles

No Bud Light was used in the candy chocolate. It was for turtle roller consumption only. We upgraded to Merlot for light painting.

Molds, and Buckeyes, and Turtles Oh My

Painting Lights (The lights are made in a mold and we use white chocolate for the tips and green or red chocolate for the lights, then we "paint" them with edible sparkles to make them shine) They look great and taste great too!
