1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 small packages of icing sugar
2 tablespoons of corn syrup
8 tablespoons butter or margarine
Melt butter,add corn syrup,milk
Mix in icing sugar
These can be flavoured with peppermint,maple ,orange,coffee,flavorings.Wrap a maraschino cherry with the batter for a cherry chocolate.When you get them shaped put on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and put in the fridge to get cool so they dip easier.That firms them up.
Chocolate for dipping
8 ozs of semi-sweet chocolate
1/3 cake of parawax
Melt this in a small pot in a larger pot of hot water on the stove.Keep it on the heat while you dip the chocolates.I use a large darning needle to dip the chocolates.Stick the needle in the prepared
shaped center and dip in the chocolate and parawax mixture.As you dip them put them back on the wax paper to harden.

Christmas Day

It has been a long day but enjoyable.I started the day by cooking 2 turkeys,rolls and fudge ,that I did not get made before Xmas.I had planned on making chocolates ,but just did not have time to make them.It has been a tradition for years.I will make them between now and New Years.
There were 22 family members for dinner.We are lucky to have our family all here in Nova Scotia,except for four,2 in Nfld,1 in Alberta and the other is in B.C.They were one of the lucky ones that made it home before Xmas,with all the cancellations,by the airlines because of the weather.
Everyone enjoyed the meal and exchange of gifts and have returned home .It was nice weather for travelling.
Watch for my chocolate recipe .Will post it tomorrow

Santa Toilet Seat Cover

Today I made a Santa toilet seat cover.The hat is one complete stocking.The beard is the top of a second stocking.The face was embroidered on my Rose embroidery sewing machine.I made a narrow hem and inserted an elastic to hold it on the seat cover.I just have to make a pompom for the tip of the hat and it will be completed.It was fun to make.

Red Hatter

I joined a group of Red Hatters a couple years ago.It is known as Queens Red Hatters.When my DH saw me with a hat on,he laughed, he said I thought you did not like hats.I always hated to wear a hat to church.I was so pleased when the ladies stopped wearing them,as I could not find a hat that looked okay on me. Now here I am wearing them.LOL
We go to teas,shopping ,Red Hat gatherings etc,all dressed up in our red and purples.
It is just a fun group for over 50 age ladies.

Shore of Nova Scotia.Half way between Yarmouth and Halifax .There are cottages located on this beach.A favorite place for vacationers.White Point Lodge is near by which has a golf course.
