Last weekend I received this cookbook as a gift from a good friend.

I'm extremely excited to improve my candy making skills. At the moment I have about the same expertise as Lucy in the candy factory. Last Halloween was my greatest attempt. Here's a look at what I ended up making.

Basically, it's just a lot of things dipped in chocolate but oh those peanut butter cups! They are incredible. I'll be posting the recipe very soon. 

I'm also a big fan of chocolate molds. Rubbery ice cube trays are my favorite. I used one from the dollar store to make the skulls.

For Valentine's day this year, I received this awesome ice cube tray

I can't wait to start making little chocolate matryoshka dolls!


  1. I'm impressed! I've never tried to make candy before...

  2. The peanut butter cups are my favorite and they are pretty easy! I'll have to make some soon so I can take photos and post the recipe.
