Well once again we are in for more frigid weather--an artic blast is headed our way! We have had several inches of snow today so far and more is expected to hit us. We are surely going to have a white Christmas! (just wish it was a bit warmer!!)
Today I made a batch of Chocolate Carmels. YUMMY!!! I enjoy making them but I do NOT enjoy wrapping each of them! I usually use wax paper but this year I decided to try Press -n- Seal. They wrapped up easily - now for the test - to see how easily they UNWRAP!!! If you would like the recipe keep reading!!
