Valentine's Candy Skewers
Candy skewers are one of my faves. The jist is that you throw a bunch of candy on a stick and call it good. Taffy skewers are particularly cute for showers and parties with color themes. Kids LOVE them. (And not just kids... I'll eat pretty much anything off a stick.)
And guess what. There's no recipe. You get a bamboo skewer... slide a bunch of candy on. Serve. I usually buy my candy from the bins at Winco. (LOVE going through the checkout line with like fifteen bags of candy with only 3 candies per bag. It makes my day. I'm pretty sure I am the definition of hell for WinCo employees.) I don't really love it. It actually kind of makes me cringe, but I DO love feeling like I'm buying all this stuff and then the bill coming to a dollar and thirteen cents.
I love these for Valentine's day, especially if you have a school district that lets you bring homemade treats to school... Do those still exist? Cause I'm willing to move.
In other news, I spent alll night last night working on a new Recipe Index tab. (See it up there?) I wanted to make it easier for you to browse my recipes. I have it organized by categories, and then holidays, and even seasons of the year (apologies for the OCD freakness). I really hope this will make your life and my life easier! (Plus it was a really good excuse to watch six episodes of Psych in a row.)
Have a great weekend!
