As I mentioned previously, life since Thanksgiving has been very busy. One of the things that has been occupying my time is making Christmas candy. Every year, mom makes Peanut Butter and Coconut balls as well as a variety of other candies.

Up till last year, I hadn’t followed the tradition and made Christmas Candy mainly because I couldn’t figure out what to do with the vast quantities of candy that would result. However, last year it occurred to me that I could inflict the candy upon the staff within the library district. I mostly stuck to the “traditional” Christmas candies last year. However, this time I decided to experiment a bit more.

The first 4 I had made last year. I received compliments on several of the remaining candies but I think the only new one I’ll make again is the Almond Balls. They are the same recipe as the peanut butter balls except you use almond butter instead of peanut butter and substitute ground roasted almonds instead of the graham crackers. I was hoping the Apricot balls would turn out like See’s Apricot bon bons but they were a bit of a disappointment. Oh well, that just means I’ll have to try something new next year :-)
