My holiday baking/making plans

Here is what I want to make for Christmas trays/jars etc.

Chocolate fudge
Maple Walnut fudge
Brownies with candy cane kisses in the middle covered in chocolate ganache and crushed candy canes
Oreo Truffles
Chocolate Chip Truffles
Nutterbutter Truffles
Sugar cookies
Italian rainbow cookies
Peanut butter cookies
Pumpkin spice bars
Orange blondies
Seven layer bars
Orange ricotta cookies
Symphony brownies

That's the goal.

For the teachers/therapists/aides - I bought them each a big glass jar and I'll fill the bottom with Hershey kisses, then biscotti, and wrapped "purchased treats" - then fill the top with wrapped homemade treats. Tie a big ribbon and we're done. I'll take pictures of those.

Neighbors/friends will get a tray with assorted goodies (that is the hope).

Jim is in the shower (allegedly) and then we're going to go cut down our tree!

Happy Saturday.
