12/2/06 Holiday Treats & High Seas

The seas went down to 3 ft today and heading right back up to 5 ft all next week. I'm in serious sun/fishing withdrawls. The only way to cure it is by doing holiday baking and do my best not to eat all of it.

Grizzly Bear Claws

Warmed homemade caramel
1 bag of Ghiradelli Semi-sweet Choc chips

After putting down the caramel first, then add the cashews in paw-like fashion. Add melted chocolate on top. Put in freezer to solidfy.

Must be kept in cool temps. They make delicious, sticky treats.

I hope to be fishing by next weekend.

My good friend Dawn (KenyaMK) has been making these great holiday gifts. Here is a photo that she wanted to share with others.

Yes, I eat squid. :) (And you aren't the only one who thinks I am insane to do so!) But if I could get fish like YOU catch, I would eat that instead!!!

Your Grizzly Bear Paws look fantastic. But do you have a homemade caramel recipe for me??!!

1c butter
2 1/4 c brown sugar, dark
1c light corn syrup
1 14oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk

Constantly stir up to 242-248 deg (soft ball candy), add 1 tsp vanilla.

Drop balls into cold water to form a firm, pliable ball. Few minutes later, work with it, roll it, drop it into pieces on wax.

Recipe comes from Jill the moderator at Sonlight curriculum forums.
