I bought a bunch of wax melts (17 so far) and plan to potentially buy more. This wax melt smells divine, and makes me want to get in there to start baking... If I could bake. The only baking I can do is something I can follow directions on. Don't ask me to do anything fancy shmancy, it won't turn out like you expect it to. This (the Friendship bread scent) was one of the "fall" collection scents for this seller. Trying to stock up on warming smells as the temperatures drop. On a side note, have you ever made friendship bread? It's hard work but delicious! and very very fattening!

I have never made friendship bread, is this one of those recipes that expand and you divide and give away? I love to bake and do quite a bit from Halloween through Christmas. I love the smell in the house with cookies and pies and my favorite is zucchini bread. Looking forward to it. I have been stocking up on wax melts also and need to start gathering candles the temps are falling here too.

I bet the temps are falling faster in Colorado. It's still in the 80's during the day here but the nights are getting cooler. It won't be long until we are in the 60's and 50's during the day as well. Yes, friendship bread is exactly that, one of those divide and give away things. It's more of a hassle than anything else really. I've not had zucchini bread, but I bet it's delicious.

@ScribbledAdNauseum, where I live the snow really isn't anything to write home about either. We don't get much generally at one time. Since I been her Christmas last year was the most we got in one falling. That was beautiful, but not common. Generally we get a dusting or even an inch but it usually melts within 224 hours, as soon as the sun come back out. I remember having a friend that was constantly trying to get rid of it. While the bread was good, it seemed like a pain in the but to get rid of the excess.

@beaniefanatic13 I do love the look of snow, even if it does essentially leave me stranded. I think the whole premise of the bread is to give it away / around.

It was a tedious process (the making of the bread) and way way way too sweet and addictive.

We make many types of bread-and the season is upon us to get started. There is a wonderful video (have to find it) for those who are not sure how to bake bread. I will write a post about it as soon as I remember where it is!

My mom had a bread maker and when she passed (or perhaps before she passed, not sure which) my aunt got it. I won't ask for the bread maker as it's not such a big deal. I love homemade bread though, and especially sweetened breads.

That would be a great scent to fill your house with. As for the real stuff, I have always liked it when someone gave it to me, but finding others to give it to was the problem...just like a chain letter. The bread itself is so good!

Yes, I could only give it to so many people. I can count them all on one hand as well, and it would probably end up with me getting more as well!

I can't remember how much sugar and the such is in the bread, but I remember when I had it a few years ago, it was very very sweet.
