I love cooking and baking — and making homemade candy is no exception. I tried something a tad different this year and decided to make fudge and place it into my Easter egg shaped molds.
It is firm, yet soft and oh so yummy with the marshmallows and pecans.
So I was bored before dinner the other night and decided to make the family some Gluten Free Pretzel Toffee Candy. Let’s just say it is pure heaven! Sweet, salty and had a nice crunch! OH! And the recipe only had 4 ingredients: butter, brown sugar, pretzels & dark chocolate chips.
I made the teachers and their aids an end of the year thank you gift today — an Acrylic Tumbler with a Straw stuffed with a pen, a sanitizer bottle, a glue stick and as much candy I could fill it with! I hope it is a good present that they will like. I just couldn’t think of what to do this year.
I had to make five of these gifts for 3 teachers and 2 aids.
With Easter just days away I started making my annual homemade candy. Normally it is Rocky Road Eggs and Chocolate Bunnies. However, today I decided I wanted to try my hand at making homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs!!
I used a vintage metal egg mold that was my grandmother’s. This mold brings back so many memories of her making Rocky Road Chocolate eggs that I can vividly see her in her kitchen working away.
