Foodie Friday: Candy
I wanted to start a new little section on my blog where I highlight some of the recipes that I've made along with some great recipes that I've found on the web. I really admire the work that I see other food bloggers doing and I want to share it with you! This week I am feeling especially festive and cannot wait for October to be here tomorrow. I love October (and of course Halloween), and all of the foods that are in season. Apples, butternut squash, pumpkins, stews... And candy. To say I have a sweet tooth is terribly underrated. It's more like a fang (perhaps that isn't the best metaphor). That's probably why I like Halloween so much. Anyway, I'm going to share some great homemade candy recipes so get to your kitchen, it's gonna be sweet!
Homemade Snickers Bars. These are amazing. They were a little bit of a time consuming process, but it wasn't anything hard (and you can totally lick the spoon as you make it). Mine weren't the prettiest, but they hit every single flavor note that I was looking for. Make these. Now.
Some other great treats from the web:
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Truffles from Whole Foods. I have been dying to make these since I bookmarked them last year. I love pumpkin and the pumpkin spice flavors. Hopefully I'll get to it soon.
Key Lime Pie Fudge from Sugar Cooking. I love key lime pie and this fudge looks ridiculously good. While it is a more summery candy, who says I can't start a summer foods trend in the fall?
Pumpkin Fudge from Brown Eyed Baker. Pretty much the only thing that is keeping me from not running to the kitchen to make this is that I don't have a candy thermometer. It looks so tasty though!
"Snickers" Bars These Snickers are Bon Appetit's version of the candy bar. From the ingredients list and instructions, it looks much more "classy" and a bit more challenging than the bars I made a few months back. I have them on my "to-make" list.
