If you love caramel candies, this recipe will be like heaven to you! It is soft and wonderful. I use it to make homemade turtles candy, but you can use it to make anything you want. It is EXCELLENT!!
Note: I like to use a metal spatula to stir with so it helps keep it from burning.
These are so good they taste like a name brand candy outlet when you use the nuts. You can make these without nuts too. I use more nuts than called for and use 2 cups total of half & half. Got this recipe from a friend and everyone loves it. I put them in the refrigerator until starts to set and then I take them out so they don't get too hard.
If for some reason they set too long and get hard, pop them in the microwave for a few for a nice warm chewy caramel.
Cadbury's Crunchie Bars are one of my favorite candy bars. They are also my dentist's favorite candy bar, because if I eat enough of these I keep him in business. This is a Nigella Lawson recipe, from her book How to Be a Domestic Goddess. She calls it cinder toffee, but for me it will always be the crunchy part of the Crunchy Bar.
This syrup is concentrated stuff, use 1-2 tsp in 8 oz of milk. It's ultra-chocolatey, with a deep cocoa flavor, and not too sweet. This syrup is thick and smooth with a shine ...a chocolate syrup for adults. Use Dutch process cocoa powder if you want the finished product to have the beautifully deep color and flavor to which all good chocolate syrups should aspire.
A delightful and easy cookie; recipe is from Denmark. The recipe makes 30 small or 20 large peaks. I strongly recommend that you add the extra step of dipping in chocolate as it gives the cookie that extra dimension and wow factor. I add a bit of butter to the melted chocolate and drip it on top of the peaks. I have updated the recipe measurements thanks to Hokies' hard work - the conversion from metric to cups did not work out, too much of some ingredients, too little of others. The current recipe reflects the accurate measurements after have scaled ingredients and cross checked cup measurements.
My DH always gets a container of these every year during the holidays from one of the ladies in the office at one of his clients. I asked him to get the recipe from her and now I have it. OH! I love them! Thought I would share the recipe too.
This has a consistency very similar to a tootsie roll, only softer. You can roll it flat (using rolling pin or pasta machine, the latter being easier), and tie it into bows, form it into flowers, and shape it into leaves or doo-dads. Handle it as much as you wish--it's very sturdy! From Mollie Katzen. I haven't tried this but it sounds so fun! For the kids --or for you!! Cook time includes cool time.
A chocolate and peanut butter lover's dream come true! This is a sweet that is a specialty of the John MacMillan Presbyterian Church's "Christmas Affair," held every fall in Bethel Park, PA...They make it every year because it "roars" and people love it! :) (Prep time does not include time it takes for "butter" to set.)
Perfect for gift giving! They suggest wrapping these individually in freezer paper. Use the waxy side against the candy then you can decorate the outside of the wrap. Another recipe from a local grocery.
I've been making these at Christmas time for years. My family demands them and they are wonderful gifts, much appreciated by all my co-workers. They are firm, but melt in your mouth and don't stick to your teeth. They are somewhat time consuming but worth it. I buy the red and green wrappers or you can cut up and use regular wax paper.
