Violet crumble: I first ran into this at the bookstore in college--a lonely box at the register. Intrigued by the "honey comb" idea, I bought one, and loved how it was like an airy Butterfinger--a good taste, but not nearly as annoying to eat. I was bummed when I found it was an Australian candy, not sold in the mainstream here. Luckily, one of my goodest friends travels to Aus once a year and bring a bag bad stateside for me. I have this latest bag in my cupboard--a prize for reaching goals.
Kinder bueno three pack: I never had Kinder until I found these at the commissary on base when I was visiting my parents over Thanksgiving. I gave some to some friends and kept one for me--very tasty.
Kinder bueno, mas.
Two individual kinder buenos.
"Crunchy wafers with creamy nut filling in milk chocolate."
Those are good, but then there's candy from the heart.
Beth made peanut butter bonbons for me, pleased that she'd learned how to temper chocolate to make a snappy shell.
They were wonderful!
And my boss' wife makes wonderful chocolate-covered toffee for the holidays.
And then there are good ideas surrounding candy. Get thee to a Target, and look for this box.
The back will map the flavors (dark or milk chocolate) and tell you the stories of the tile artists.
They're so charming.
How could you not want that?
And sometimes, I fernagle my own fix--natural p.b. on lowfat grahams under semisweet chocolate. Ah!
Hit the spot!
