Every year

As far back as I can remember, my mom & my Nannie would spend a whole day making Christmad candy for gifts. While in college, some friends and I started the same tradition. We didn't (and still don't) make fudge or divinity, but we assembled gingerbread houses and hand dipped pretzels. Neither tradition has faded, and I hope they never do!
Today was a very busy baking day. This morning I went over to mom's house and made a batch of peanut butter fudge and a batch of chocolate fudge. Then, this afternoon I met up with a friend to make the rest of my Christmas goodies. Here's what I started with: Alot of ingredients, huh? I'll post my final products later :)

What goodies do you make at Christmas? Do you have any fun cooking/Christmas traditions?

That is so fun! Marcus grew up doing that too. We haven't made anthing this year, but our menu usually consists of chex mix, peanut butter balls, and chocolate covered pretzels.
