Dippy chicks and Christmas cookies

Chocolate covered pretzels

My sister held her annual cookie walk and candy making extravaganza over the weekend. Seven women used 30 pounds of chocolate to dip more Hershey kisses, hugs, pretzels and M&Ms than you could possibly imagine. And each of us went home with seven dozen cookies made in advance and brought to the party.

It was a little bit amazing, a whole lot of fun and the amount of goodies we each took home? Fabulous!

As I said, there was a great deal of dipping by the chicks in attendance. We dipped pretzel rods and mini pretzels. We dipped buckeyes and peanut butter crackers.

We had a few helpers, but mostly they played and watched movies and meandered into the kitchen for spare parts and sneaky bites!
