These holiday treats are a tradition at our house. There are few candies that are safe for kiddo because of her peanut allergy, but thankfully these are one kind we trust. Actually Hershey's has pretty good labeling practices. But as with any product it is necessary to read the ingredient label every time before we purchase it, even if we have bought that product 10,027 times already.

This drawing, like the ornament below, is done with Faber-Castell Polychromos on Strathmore 500 Bristol paper. These are fun to do. I have a few more holiday items on my list to draw. Hopefully I will get around to them before the holiday season has passed us by!

I started today with a drawing, but didn't get far. I hope to do more tomorrow and Saturday.

These are great! I need to remember to try the CP on Bristol ... wonderful effect. I've not been by in a while (?and I don't know why not? duh) and have missed a LOT of fantastic art. It has been fun to browse your recent posts.

Great little drawing of a favorite treat. The ingredients change often and with the cost of food going up so much, I would be especially careful right now as the companies find ways to cut costs and maintain profits.
