It Was Fun!

I am back from a fun weekend of helping my sister and niece with a fundraiser for their church. My sister, Dianne, helped to organize the event and put in many hours to make it a success. Danielle, my 17-year-old niece, is an aspiring entrepreneur who would like to start making and selling chocolates. So for this fundraiser, she was able to have a table where she could sell some chocolate goodies and launch her business at the same time.

She has decided that her business would be called d's delicate delights and she is starting with chocolate covered pretzel rods in a variety of flavors such as Caramel, Oreo, Skor, Sprinkles and Rice Krispies. She is also making gourmet Caramel Apples. Yummmm!

It was really a family effort for this event. My sister Mary, Danielle's mom, decorated the paint cans and jars and helped to package the pretzels, Dianne helped out by making some of the pretzels and apples and I helped by making some Oreo Cookie Pops. Danielle also made four different kinds of pretzels and her sister, Sarah, helped to sell the goodies.

This is a picture of my niece Sarah, myself and Danielle.

We are all wearing some aprons that I made especially for the occasion.

We had so many comments on them and a lot of people wanted to know if they could buy them!

We ended up having a great time as we spent the day working together and it was a good experience for my niece. I hope she continues to follow her dream of making delicious chocolates for others to enjoy!
