4th of July Candy Ideas Coming In!

  Found this recipe for red, white, and blue bark over at this site. Looks easy enough, as long as you use good chocolate, like the Guittard Dark pastilles that I wrote about recently. Be careful of putting them outdoors in heat, they will soften and melt for sure!         Step 1: [...]

Father’s Day candy suggestions still being accepted.

Keep those Father’s Day candy gift suggestions coming in. I like the ones I have seen so far. Peanut brittle is a frequent mention. Of course, I think of the retro candies – Sky Bar, Sugar Daddy, Baby Ruth,  which would have been available when my father was a boy. I remember my father as [...]
