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?! 😉
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.
