S’mores Fudge

by on October 17, 2009 · 19 comments


I never met a flavor of fudge I didn’t like, but here’s one that really grabbed my attention — s’mores flavor fudge. This piece is from the candy store on Main Street in Disney’s Magic Kingdom. The idea seems so obvious, but I don’t have any tried and true recipes for s’mores fudge, …

Frito Candy

Two years ago I wrote about Frito candy, a twist on an old cracker candy recipe and frankly, one which I thought would appeal only to people who had PMS or were drunk. After two years of good reviews, I’m happy to say you don’t have to be under the influence of shifting hormones or […]

Soft Peanut Brittle

11/21/2011 UPDATE: Sadly, the original recipe I linked to located at The Nut Factory’s page was taken down. In the meantime, I’m going to try a few other soft peanut brittle recipes and will update soon. Thanks. UPDATE 2: Okay! Here’s another version. This makes 1 1/4 pounds, and in my opinion it’s more reliable […]

Best-Ever Almond Toffee (Small Batch)

This is a small batch which can be made in a 2 quart saucepan. As I made batch after batch of toffee yesterday, I noticed that the order of adding ingredients […]

Paula’s Pecan Pralines

by on July 19, 2007 · 20 comments

One nice thing about being a Texan is we can choose, on any given day, if we’d prefer to be Southerners or simply Texans. At least that’s my take on it and today, given the fact that I’ve been reading my Paula Deen cookbook, I’m going with Southerner. The book is The Lady and Sons […]

Vanilla Fudge — Scottish

by on March 20, 2007 · 14 comments

I’m back in the kitchen today and have made my first batch of vanilla fudge. It’s not exactly the same as EAT’s, but it’s close. After noticing the EAT fudge was made in Scotland and doing a little research, I came to the conclusion that the EAT fudge was modeled after something called Helensburgh Toffee. […]

I’m a little late with today’s recipe, which happens to be perfect for Valentine’s Day – especially if you are vegan or just love someone who is. This truffle recipe is made with vegan chocolate and cashew cream. If you have a blender or a food processor (I used a food processor), these are very […]

Sweet, Salty, Frito Candy

by on February 9, 2007 · 47 comments

I came up with this snack/candy one day while I was playing around. It was supposed to be kind of a trashy but delicious snack — a mess of Fritos, pretzels, and peanut butter cups held together in a matrix of brown sugar and butter. I made it and liked it enough to take to […]
