While we're talking about eating handfuls of candy, we need to discuss these adorable bluebirds. Aren't they precious? And if you don't love Jordan almonds, there's an itty bitty M&M version, too. Read on to see it...
Q: Help! Every year I make my mom's secret family candy recipe for holiday gifts. It is always a huge hit and very simple. I went to my usual candy making store this weekend to buy the chocolate wafers and the shop is out of business. They are only place I have ever bought chocolate and it was delicious and melted perfectly. There are no other resources in my area of high quality candy chocolate (sorry, but the stuff at big box stores won't cut it). Do you know of any online resources?
Searching for a sweet yet sophisticated way to end a meal? Look no further than these Lillet marshmallows, which combine the fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth texture of homemade marshmallows with the complex, honeyed flavor of Lillet Blanc, a favorite French liqueur.
Halloween is one of the more perfect holidays. If you have young kids, you get to relive the fun of dressing up and trick-or-treating through their eyes. If you don't have kids, you have a really good excuse to buy mini candy bars for the whole month of October. And while those are wonderful, we love thinking about homemade treats to bring to work, keep around the house, and share with the neighborhood kids.
While chocolate and cheese are an unusual pairing, they're not as mutually exclusive as one would think. Consider chocolate cheesecake or the chocolate drizzled on cannoli, for example. This dessert, which pairs a wedge of double creme cheese with squares of dark chocolate and dead ripe figs, takes this concept to a whole new level. So simple, yet at the same time sophisticated and, well, pretty sexy, too.
I might have ditched my sweet tooth awhile back, but that doesn't stop me from being intrigued about things like homemade gummy bears and now gum drops. They'd be perfect for a work day snack or something pretty for a party. The best part? They're far easier to make than you'd ever imagine!
I have mad respect to those bakers who take it upon themselves to make homemade versions of their classic candy favorites. I remember spending my summer nights when I was younger sitting on the hood of my Father's truck eating Butterfinger Blizzards from the local Dairy Queen. Times have changed, but my memories can still be just as sweet with this homemade Butterfinger recipe.
