Candy! Candy!

My friends Matt & Matt had a super fun Halloween party this year. I wanted to make some spooky snacks for it and asked my pals Morgan (maker of beautiful yarns) and Casie (maker of super cute dolls) if they wanted to make some with me. We decided on making peanut butter cups and lollipops.










 Both were easier than I would have thought, but it really, really helped that Morgan had made them before. If for no other reason than there were terms that neither Casie or I knew. We ran out of chocolate before we ran out of filling so I topped the rest with marshmallows and stuck them under the broiler in the toaster oven for a little bit. The lollipops were totally lopsided and funny looking but we just figured that hey..it's Halloween and they look creepy!

All in all it was a lot of fun and I hope we do it again soon. We were all even dreaming of having our own adorable candy/ gelato shop. What an adorable dream!

  2. Yeah, that's what we figured. We did make some hard candies with some silicone ice cube trays though! They looked like legos!
