And the opportunity. I'm going to try it with precious metals.

How glad I am I didn't tell him this! Imagine killing such a wonderful and inspiring (let alone entertaining) thread with such an untimely comment! Well done, Gobo!! Do keep us on our toes and fired up with your intellectually stimulating questions! We all deserve them!

Wow, thank you.
Didn't know I was getting this kind of respect. :P
:D

I can assure you, you'll be getting many questions over the years. I don't plan on leaving this forum.

When I get home tonight, I'm going to look up a recipe for macaroons. If I don't have to work I'll make them right away. If I do have to work, I'll do it after.
So I may have questions for you then.
I can assure you I'll have a new image though.

I think I should make a thread just with stuff I've baked.

That's great! One thing before you start though. Do throw away your measuring cup (if you got one since trying out your peanut butter candy recipe). You might do a tad better if you throw away packing boxes etc. so that you can give us more to sink our teeth (fangs maybe?) into. Will be looking forward to the challenge.

Gobo's problem began because there was no box Boufa! lol

Oh dear lord. I have to tell you, I'd missed this thread before and when I saw the number of posts I figured I'd better have a look. I am shaking my head and chuckling here in my chair. (Cat thinks I'm loony BTW) Only here at DC could we yak about this for this many pages. Cheers to you all.

My mom loved the peanut butter balls so much, she wants me to make a double batch tonight.

I'm still making macaroons too

Do you think this looks like a good recipe?
Or is there something better you think that will work.

1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
3 squares (3 ounces) unsweetened chocolate
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 ounces shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
