When I was a kid, my favourite candy to find in my trick-or-treat bag was chocolate covered marshmallows, the one’s that were shaped like ghosts or pumpkins. I still love that combination, which is why I can not believe that I didn’t come up with these Candy Coated Marshmallows sooner!
Halloween is fast approaching! Have you chosen your costume and stocked up on candy yet?… I haven’t dressed up since I was a kid. And these days my participation ends the moment I plunk that carved pumpkin in front of the house. Then I bunker down in the basement, letting my Mom ooh and ahh over all the little ghosts and ghouls. That being said, any excuse to bake! Right?! 😉
Do you like tofu? I’ve always loved the stuff! Even as a child, I was that weird kid ordering it in restaurants and sneaking cold cubes of it off the cutting board as my Dad prepared dinner… Of course, back then (at least according to my Dad) tofu was just for Chinese food… and hippies 😜
I’m not going to beat around the bush. I’m in love with these doughnuts! Spice cake doughnuts topped with a thick whiskey infused glaze. Baked, not fried. So less fat and less mess. Right?!… That, and I’ve never had much succeed with a fryer (which I know is just for the best😉 ).
I’m not a fan of halving pie crust recipes. I’ve found that, for me, the crusts never come out quite the same, and I have difficulty working with the reduced ingredients. For this reason, I always make the full recipe.
