Bon Bon Bonanza 2008 !!!

Bryan had asked me if I would make some goodies for him to take to his office and share with his team. I made the Cowboy cookies he liked so well on Tuesday and then on Wednesday night I made Bon Bons using his MeMaw's recipe.


This:
There is 2 pounds of powder sugar, 1 full bag of coconut, 2 sticks of butter, pecans, and 1 can of sweetened condensed milk. I'm telling you this is deadly and sticky!!


Led to this:



Which became this:


And ended up like this:




It was a lot of work over the past two evenings and I've spent more time in my kitchen than I have in a while but I was honored he asked me to do it. Now I just hope no one gets sick from my cooking.

I will have to make another batch of Bon Bons for Bryan's family but thankfully I have this weekend and Monday to work on it!!!!
