How to bake Christmas Goodies for 100+: Days 1-4

Since this is my fourth (but largest) year of making an assortment of goodies for my husband's clients, I thought I would bring you along. Everyone always asks: "how do you do it!". If you break it down it really isn't that bad (plus Obama is speaking tonight so nix the TV:)

DAY 1: December 26, 2008. Went to Wal-Mart and bougth 75 Christmas tins (red with white snowflakes) and 25 red circle trays at 50% off ( I will show you them later, they are still packed away)

DAY 2: (last week) Shop at Aldi for basic baking supplies. Mix Peanut Blossom Cookie Mix and Freeze. (6 batches)

DAY 3: Mix Peanut Butter Balls mix and freeze. (6 batches)

DAY 4: (today) Mix Peanut Butter Cup Mix and Freeze. (6 batches) Make first 2 batches of Fantasy Fudge. Tried something new this year. I always seen to "waste" some fudge becuase it is hard to get it out of the pan even if I line with wax paper first. I found these silicone flexible pans at Aldi for $3.99 so I am giving them a try.

Next I need to shop for more special things like evaporated milk, caramels, white baking chips, dipping chocolate, almond paste, white frosting, etc.
Stay Tuned and I will show you my progress up until the end!!!
