I have made THREE patches of each of these!!! My feet are killing me!!! To the right is English Toffee. My Pups and Scones friend, Polly came over this afternoon and I helped her make a sheet for her. Later in the evening my neighbor, Helen, came over and as a Christmas gift, I made a sheet for her..... Now I just finished making a sheet for ME!!! Three batches of English Toffee!!! Once it is cooled, I am sure I will be sampling.

This is starting to be my TRADITION... I am making and bagging for friends and neighbors, Gussy's Goop..... I made three batches of this SIN OF CRUNCH...I think we nibbled one batch and I still have the rest to bag, but it just feels so good making stuff while Christmas music is playing in the back ground. And yes... the star Christmas Caroler of the day/night is still my SWEET BABY JAMES.... oh I love this man SO!!!!

Gussy's Goop
10 cups rice or corn CHEX cereal
12 cups Golden Grahams cereal
1- 14 oz bag coconut
2 cups cashews

Mix above in large bowl.

1 1/2 cup butter (3 cubes of BUTTER) a must
2 cups white sugar
2 cups light Karo syrup

Melt and boil for 2 minutes. Pour and mix with cereal mixture. Cool on parchment paper or wax on counter top...BAG...and ENJOY!!!

Girl, you KNOW I made that stuff last year & it was EVIL & DELICIOUS! (I still have some of it permanently stuck to my ass thank you very much!) but OH SWEET JESUS IT WAS WORTH EVERY STICKY SECOND OF IT! *drool*

I know it all must be fabulously delicious, but when first saw the picture for the English Toffee (I hadn't read anything yet) I thought, ob boy, she got new counter tops, how pretty! LOL, sorry. :)

I thought the same thing about the counter tops! LOL! Anyway, that Gussy's Goop sounds interesting! I just bought some treat bags to fill for my co-workers. I was going to do traditional chex mix but I think I may make this instead! Thanks for the post! Merry Christmas!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to my wonderful secret pal. I can't believe I have been following your journey all this time and had no clue you were my amazing pal. I revealed your identity today! You have touch my heart in more ways than you will ever know!

Oh, by the way, I know you said the mugs were for Emma but Mike and I sure like them a lot and think we should get to use them too (at least until Emma gets here!)

Well, I will just have to get past that word "Goop" and make some myself! Maybe rename it to Tate's Tasty Temptations?! Had to laugh at the countertop references! =)
Glad you are enjoying the season!

Ooh, thanks, I lost the recipe I had written on the back of an envelope and this saved me from needing to call my SIL, and I thank you, thank you, thank you.
