Dipped Cinnamon Bears

Not really a fan of Halloween.
But it's the last day of the month.
I needed to get some Visiting Teaching done.
And a birthday gift delivered.
So I dipped some cinnamon bears.
Because there certainly isn't enough candy in the stores.
It was nice to get out the marble slab and play in chocolate.
It was easy and fun.
(Not sure what I was thinking when I ended up dipping 5 trays though.)
Happy Halloween!

Connie said...

I just can't wrap my head around cinnamon and milk chocolate. Not sure about that.

Nothing better than chocolate . . . and cinnamon bears, what a great combination! I want to live at your house!

Ann Marie said...

You are KILLING me.

Killing me.

I need to hitch hike to Rexburg Pronto.

Seriously... these are one of my very favorite treats.

And I am sure the kind I eat taste nothing like your death by chocolates -- chocolate.

I may have to quit reading your blog for a while.. your tempting chocolates are haunting me....

Connie said...

You know how to visit teach...going the last day of the month and taking a treat! YUM!

Have I told you that a chocolate covered cinnamon bear is my new favorite candy? It really is. I'm not just saying this to get a tray or two from you.

Brenda said...

Send me a tray! Ha ha
What lucky people to you visit!
Looks yummy!
Happy Halloween to you!

Julie Harward said...

LOL With all that canning you have been doing, I am just sure that you must have been thinking...2 years supply! They do look good! :D

Yvonne said...

I tried chocolate Cinnamon bears on my last trip to Utah and wish I hadn't--YUMMY!!!!! I wonder how long one of those trays would last at my house?????

Hideaway Girl said...

Yum. I really needed to read this post YESTERDAY. I didn't get my VT done - kept on thinking about dropping something off, but my brain was fried and I couldn't think of anything good(guilt). This would have been perfect!

~Wyatt~Brittney~Brecken~Oliver~ said...

my mom LOVES them! She has people bring her some from Florences everytime we get a visitor from back in the burg!

~Wyatt~Brittney~Brecken~Oliver~ said...

p.s. I wish you were MY visiting teacher!

Kerin said...

What a treat your V.T sisters got!
Great idea to make them yourself :)
Is that a diet coke I spy ? If it is, you are a girl after my own heart--- diet coke and chocolate... perfect!
Glad I found your blog! I'm now following you, and looking forward to reading all your cute posts.
Hope you have a happy day.
(We're getting some pretty serious snow right now, but it sure looks beautiful coming down)

Kazzy said...

You are killing me, with your homemaking skills and your chocolate bears. sigh

Valerie said...

Oh man! I love cinammon bears. Love them! I've never tried the chocolate covered ones...but yours look scrumptious!!!

mumsysramblings said...

Oh, my goodness, sweet Tauna!! Did you ever do some dipping. Bet they were yummy. Thanks for stopping by my Ramblings blog. I am trying to get caught up on reading blogs. In answer to your question it is an Olympus and yep hubby is a keeper. I would bet yours is too.

I am with you on leaving out all but bananas in that bread too. No need for spices...too overpowering.

Hugs!

Nana said...

Mmmmmm, yummy!!!! I take some of that and some jam too.

Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

Oh, my husband works for a nut company and sells those, though yours look better. But I can't keep them in the house. Much too risky!

Beth at Aunties said...

Oh YUM! You can visit me anytime! Seriously those sound so delicious and addicting!
I want thank you for always leaving the kindest messages on my daughter's and on my blog. I was blessed with the best & talented daughter ever. I have wondered since she was born why I was her mother when she is the one who continually teaches me.
She accomplishes (while being a very busy primary president) so much while running circles around her mom. Sheese.... I always wanted daughters like you have and HF only sent me just one but included what all the others could have had, all in one! ~♥

Darn, My mouth is still watering!

Julia said...

Oh those hand dipped candies looks so yummy and your dipped hand too. You are doing things in a BIG way, from canning to candies. Great stuff.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'll try to post something sometimes today. It feels good to have my blog back. JB

Vern said...

you have a marble slab?!

Heather said...

Oh those look so yummy! I am glad I got to taste some of your chocolate skills last year! You rock!

JoAnn said...

Cinnamon bears + Chocolate = H.E.A.V.E.N.

Once again, you impress me. Or depress me -- cuz i could never even imagine being as talented as you, dahlin'!

And how come you were never assigned to be my V.T.? Grrrrr. ;)

Leontien said...

Hahaha what do you do with all those bears!!!! haha

And THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH sweeties!!! i enjoyed you sweet gift so much!

Big BIG hugs and kisses from Indiana and i missed you all!

Krista said...

I don't like cinnamon and chocolate together - but I LOVE you! I was catching up on my slack reading and I saw your pictures of CBC - where we fell in love! (I know, I haven't been doin' my part. I don't deserve a friend like you.) It's hard to make bears look anything but cute and even harder to make chocolate look bad.

gigi said...

Those are so stinkin cute! You just blow me away with all your energy! You go girl!!

Kimmie said...

I feel so SPOILED that I got to be one of the recipients of your amazing chocolate dipped cinnamon bears. I can't believe how delicious they were, MUCH better than the ones you can purchase at Broulims or Porters.

You truly do make the world's best chocolates (I think they're even better than Florences!)

One of these next years, I would LOOOOVVVVVEEEEE to come and stand by your side and be taught how to dip chocolates. It is something I have always wanted to take a class in, but, there really aren't ever chocolate dipping classes to take.

Thanks SO much for taking time out of your extremely busy life and driving out and bringing some sunshine and yummyness to us! I enjoy so much seeing and visiting with you!!

lifeinredshoes said...

That's it, I'm moving into your ward :)

wendy said...

Oh dang..I wish you were MY visiting teacher. That sounds like an awesome treat
a little spicy hot with chocolate!!!

and did I see a big mug of "soda?" on the counter.
WHAT is your beverage of choice my dear.

I don't know. hmmm....playiing around in chocolate, (opens up many ideas for me....teehee)

Lene said...

That is one of my favorite treats...evah.

Kathy said...

This sounds amazingly delicious! Very fun and very clever,
Kathy

M-Cat said...

tammy said...

Silvinha said...

Tauna thanks for the yummie bears they made may day and hid nicely in my room so I could eat them all to myself-sometimes life is too short to share!
