Turtles Or Millionaires

When I was a child my Dad would buy Mom a box candy for occasions—Millionaires as they were called then.  These days the candy is called turtles and my friend Gina makes a very close copy of those candies—delicious!  I’ve never tried making the candy and Gina was to have helped me before she had to go take care of grandbabies. SmileSo, I winged it yesterday and today—mine turned out pretty good for a first try—at least Michael and Rollie thought they were good.  Brenda has also made these candies and took a lot of teasing for the size of her original experiment—I’ve heard them referred to as “saucers sized.”  Well the ones on the right are Brenda sized—I got a little carried away.


This morning I was up shortly after Michael left, finished the candies, walked all the dogs, showered and was at the clubhouse by 9am for quilting group.  I finished up some Christmas presents then headed for home and my long to do list.

The car is mostly packed and I will finish the rest while Michael heads to work in the morning.  Rumor has it—it will be a short work day!

Rollie came for dinner tonight and we had absolutely delicious chicken fajitas with sautéed and caramelized onions and peppers.  For dessert we enjoyed some of those millionaires/turtles. 

I’m excited to be heading to AR tomorrow!!  We should have good weather missing that storm which has pounded the midwest.


  1. My neighbor makes those alot and shares, so I am lucky. Of course I share my nutrolls with her.

  2. Mmmmm, I can almost taste them.
    Have a safe trip.

  3. haha yes I have a few saucer sized ones again lol. I feel very lucky that Gina showed me how to make them.

    Take Care and Merry Christmas to you and yours
