OK, as most of you know, the Xanthia Candy Frenzy began on Saturday. I brought in a few samples of stuff to work so my coworkers can get some nibbles in. They will all be getting baskets next Monday for their Christmas Gift. Most of you also know I make extra "just in case" baskets. Well, one of the ladies in my office (not my department) was telling me how much she was enjoying the candy and asked if it would be possible for her to buy 2 baskets from me for her parents and in laws as she thinks they would REALLY enjoy them (she says she is cooking challenged). I told her I had some extra baskets and not to worry, I would bring them in to her. Well, she is insisting on paying BUT I not only do not feel comfortable taking her money, I also have no idea what to charge. I know how much it cost to make each basket, but what is a fair price to charge.
OK, each basket contains:
3 milk chocolate covered cashew turtles (app 2" dia)
3 white choc covered macadamia nut turtles (same)
3 white choc coconut bonbon (1 inch)
3 milk choc coconut bonbon (1 inch)
3 peanutbutter bonbon (1 inch)
3 pieces of rocky road candy (1 inch by 1 inch)
3 pecan pralines (2 inch dia)
1 small bag of peanut brittle (about 3/4 cup)
1 small bag cashew brittle (about 3/4 cup)
1 small bag mix nut brittle ( about 3/4 cup)
3 pieces peanutbutter fudge
3 pieces of another candy to be determined by my leftover stuff.
Supplies and ingredients (including basket) run me about $10.00 per basket, what is a fair price to charge. I do not want to charge too much, but I also do not want to make it that if I DO let her pay me for it that is is insanely low and I GOP myself in case someone else wants to buy some in the future X can say "Well Xan only charges $$$". It is a lot of work, but these are EXTRA JUST IN CASE BASKETS, I really prefer not to take any money.
