Cinder Toffee

Quite simply one of the nicest sweets to eat, and so easy to make too.

In a matter of seconds the mixture went from this

to this

and all because I'd added a tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda.

I have a couple of tips for you though.

1. You need to have everything to hand and work quickly

2. You need the largest saucepan you have and a large tray with deep sides.

I realised too late that I didn't have the right tray, so mine ended up causing an avalanche.

I have tried a little off the side though and it's really yummy. The saucepan
looks a mess when you've finished, but boiling water soon fixes that.

Once cooled and broken up, you can part or fully coat them in melted chocolate.

UKScrappers Weekly Challenges - Dec 2010 Week 3/4

The challenge spans over 2 weeks, but I wanted to get my LO done.

The challenge was:
* to use 12 (either 12 photos, 12 embellishments or something else)
I've used 12 words in my journalling

* to use something computer generated (digi-LO or hybrid)
I've used my computer to make an acetate rub-on for the title and journalliing

* to use Christmas colours (red and gold or blue, silver and lilac)
I went with blue, silver and lilac

I've also used Pencil Lines latest sketch #218
