Bake sale part 3 I hate everything

I got home at nearly 7, thanks to having to stop and argue with evil phone companies. Then I had another hour or two on the phone. I am still mad. Then I finally tackled the rest of the baking.

Melted chocolate for the caramel peanut clusters. Yes, it's messy.

Leftover chocolate and peanuts (I broke it up into chunks)

Batches of butterscotch cookies

Chocolate caramel peanut candy hardening

The finished produce - one tub of chocolate peanut caramel candy, one box of....a TON of cookies and chocolate peanut chunks.

I didn't finish until nearly 1am. I hate everything. I am done.

Bake Sale part 2

Night 2 of baking. Grim determination is writ upon my face.
Caramel peanut clusters cooling 

Melting the last of the caramel - all the clusters are done and cooling. I will dip them in chocolate tomorrow. The book sale starts on Thursday, so I'll bring them in Friday.

Baking the M&M cookies I made the dough for last night.

Two batches of chocolate chip dough.

M&M cookies finished. I labeled them "gooshy M&M cookies" and packed them up for the sale tomorrow.

Sweet cornbread muffins

Damnit the bottom stuck. Guess I'm eating this cornbread. *mutter*

So, current total for bake sale - 1 box of gooshy M&M cookies, six large sweet cornbread muffins. To do Thursday evening. Melt chocolate and coat caramel, bake the rest of the cookies. To do Friday morning - hopefully everything will be cool and I'll pack them up. Phew!

My feet hurt.
