Serious Bidness (Road Trip Part 2)

On Friday we took a mini road trip up to my grandparent's to visit with them. My grandad loves, loves candies. In fact, he takes the candy-making process very seriously. See?

Grandad Hurst discussing chocolate with Dianne Sonntag. This is serious business, people.

Last Christmas Grandad taught us the ins and outs of good chocolate and how to cook it into even better tasting truffles and candies. When Grandma suggested we help Grandad roll some chocolates, we were quick to say yes.
