Our first round...

Here is what my mom and I made for our first round of Operation Baking Gals!

Homemade Toffee with nuts! Yum!

I sealed it to make sure it stayed hard and fresh for our troops!

Oatmeal Toffee Cookies-

This was the first time my mom and I made this cookie... and let me tell you it was YUMMY! If we weren't careful I don't think we would have had enough to send to our troops! HAHA!

Here they are all wrapped up and labeled.

Peanut Butter Cookies-

Just your normal peanut butter cookies, nothing special, but still tasty!

Here they are wrapped up in saran wrap and labeled.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies-

These weren’t what we had planned… we were going to make PB Pudgies but for some reason the PB center did not want to come together after 2 tries so we came up with these to use up all the chocolate dough we had. We actually really liked them! Not too bad for a mistake!

Again, here they are wrapped and labeled.

M&M Cookies-

We made these instead of regular chocolate chip so that the chocolate would not melt everywhere when they shipped. They were YUM!

Wrapped, labeled, and ready to go!

Our Box-

Here is our box that we shipped. We included a picture of ourselves, some postcards of Mill Creek Park (which is near my house), a thank you note, and a picture of my dog, Bella (just because she makes me smile and I think she would make others smile as well).

My mom and I really enjoyed doing this. I really feel that it is such a small thing we can do for all that they are sacrificing for us! We hope to lead a team for the next couple of months!
Thanks for looking!!
