First off, thank you to everyone that wished us a Happy One Year! We had a great weekend! Our favorite part of the weekend was Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village.
It was the perfect night for it! Clint and I layered up and headed out to meet my brother and his girlfriend.
Thats us, ice skating on an outdoor rink.
Did I mention it was snowing! What more could you ask for!

My brother got to ride shotgun in a Ford Model T vehicle. I love how you can see all of us breathing in this picture. Makes my brother look mysterious...
It is a little hard to see, but a real Santa stands on the balcony of this home and shouts out names of Children and wishes them a Merry Christmas. As we were walking away, Santa said my name! Thats because I have been good.
It was a great night!
So, I thought I would show you what I have been up to lately. One thing I hate doing is giving people a gift for the sake of giving a gift. I am referring to my coworkers. I work with 3 men who are crazy about cars. What do you get them? So each year, I make them presents instead of buying them silly things they don't need. Ususally it is cookies. This year, they are getting a REAL treat!
So easy to make. Here is what you will need.
2 lbs White Chocolate
Thats it! You can add other things, like peppermint extract or a layer of milk chocolate, but I kept it simple.
Step 1: Melt the chocolate. I used the microwave instead of a double boiler. I know everyone says to use a double boiler, but A) I don't have one and B) this was a lot less messier and faster. Just make sure you use a bowl that is easy to pour with. Also, make sure not to burn the chocolate. I put mine on for 2 minutes and that was plenty of time.
Step 2: Line a cooksheet with parchment paper. Make sure your baking sheet has edges so the chocolate doesn't run off.
Step 3: Break up candy canes
Do not do this on your beautiful granite counter tops! I did this on the floor with the candy canes in a grocery bag.
Step 4: Pour the white chocolate onto the baking sheet. Sprinkle the candy cane pieces on top.
Step 5: Chill in the fridge for at least 45 minutes.
Once firm, break into pieces. I decided to wrap mine in small plastic bags with ribbon.
And you're done!
This was the easiest dessert I have ever made. The longest part was waiting for it to chill.
Keep checking back. Tomorrow I am going to show off our breeze way for Christmas!
