I tried to be domestic, and failed miserably. Our ward had a dessert auction to raise money for the YM/YW camps. I thought triple chocolate pretzels with caramel sounded easy enough. WRONG. I restrained my inner fat-girl and didn't even taste test. The downside to this was by the time I got to this stage I realized I had cooked the caramel too long, and ended up with hundreds of crunchy sticks. They were beautiful, but hard as rocks. I couldn't offer them for public consumption, let alone sell them to some helpless member of our new ward. I even made cute tags to cut out and tie around each batch. After throwing out hours of work and pounds of chocolate and caramel, I defaulted to brownies. Live and learn.
