Today I started the never ending project of making chocolate desserts for the boys’ dens at the Cub Scout Blue and Gold dinner. Why does it always seem like just a quick little project? “Oh, I’ll just make chocolate covered stars and chocolate covered candy bar taxis.” Hours (and often days!) later I finally finish them. I guess that is the beauty of chocolate though. Unlike baking, you can start and stop production to fit your schedule. For Aidan’s den, I am making chocolate covered candy bar taxis! Wow, these are really a lot of chocolate!
Each den is representing a state and obviously Aidan’s den (12) has New York. Not so obviously, (from my dessert, anyway) Dane’s den has Texas. Since I am a leader for Dane’s den I try to put extra effort in for Aidan’s den when I can. This time, Aidan’s dessert was my main focus. For Texas, I decided to go with the yellow chocolate and make chocolate covered stars. Get it, the Lone Star State? Like I said, not so obvious.
Ken, our 22 pound cat, wanted to help me today. He loves jumping on top of the kitchen cabinets to have a better view of “his” house and “his” people.
Have I ever shown you Ken’s smiley face?
So, I am wondering, what is your favorite dessert to make for a large group of people?
