In Response to Re: What are your holiday baking plans?:
My regular baking & candy making includes: chocolate covered cherries, fudge with nuts, fudge without nuts, almond roca, almond bark, lemon bark, spiced nuts, 7 layer bars, date crumb bars, kolaches, shortbread, Special K bars, lemon squares, and caramel layer chocolate squares. And then I usually try at least 1 new candy recipe and 1 new baked goodie recipe. These are all for gift giving, and sending to my Navy son and his squadron who will be spending Christmas on an aircraft carrier in the Arabian Sea.

My hubby loves Choc. Covered Cherries; are they hard to make? Also, I am in hopes of tying to make your Almond Roca for Christmas but I am afraid it might be too hard for me to make. I have one question for you, what kind of candy thermometer do you use?
