My husband has a legendary sweet tooth. Cookies, cupcakes, chocolate, and especially peanut butter cups. There isn’t much in the way of sugary confections he doesn’t like. This week’s Good Food Reads is for him. It’s Candy Time!
If you haven’t tried our super easy Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups yet, now is the time! They freeze really well so make a double batch for those days you just really need something sweet.
As we are now officially nearing St. Patrick’s Day, I couldn’t leave out this recipe for a copycat Shamrock Shake. I know it’s not technically a candy but it’s just too good to not share.
My absolute favorite candy indulgences are chocolate sea salt caramels or Peppermint Patties. This recipe from Epicurious shows you how to make those delectable mint treats at home!
Who doesn’t love a Snickers Bar? Why not give these Home Made Snickers Bars from How Sweet Eats a try the next time you have a craving!
Cherry Fizzy Candy (Saveur). You guys. These are basically POP ROCKS. That’s right. POP ROCKS. I’m instantly 10 years old again. I can’t wait to try them.
Another classic candy bar you can now make at home: Three Ingredient Butterfinger Bars. I think they’d be great crumbled up in some fresh vanilla ice cream.
And finally, another recipe that isn’t quite a candy but is definitely a sweet treat. Dairy Queen Crunch Cones. My go-to DQ order is a chocolate soft serve cone with crunch. I am definitely trying this recipe soon!
