Between November 28th and December 17th I have 19 days available to make candy. December 10th doesn’t count because that is designated as our Christmas Tree Day. If anyone gives us a dog that day I will hunt you down and shoot your shins clean off. There are a few other days that are not really conducive to candy making since I have to, well… work. However, I make Derek help and we still make candy.
We did a little bit of math tonight and figured out that the average number of truffles I need to complete each day is about 263. Here are some numbers for you.
I need to make 4410 truffles. I’ve made 919 so far. I need to make 2528 caramels. I’ve made 0 so far. We reached $7407 in candy sales and with donations we made $7620. I’m not done buying supplies and we won’t have the final numbers until after the 17th, but I’d say we did pretty darn good.
Thank you to everyone who purchased candy. We ended up with over 130 individual orders. If you missed your chance to order I’m sorry. Ordering truly is closed now. You had 3 weeks to order and if you missed it, you’ll have to wait until next year.
Go Elle! Just want to say a big thank you for all you do. I can’t wait to get my candy but I’ll be imagining you slaving away in the kitchen for those 19 days. Remember the advice to all good cooks – sit down once in a while 😉
