I made you some Cali-Belgique IPA Soft Caramels for the first of the year. Yes it is my sole goal in life to utterly ruin any diet related New Year’s resolutions. Muah ha ha.
Christmas is right around the corner and you know what that means!
Lots and lots of holiday baking.
Seriously, Christmas is, by far, my favorite holiday. I love the lights, the food, the decorations, the food, the goodwill towards men atmosphere, the food…
Yea, Christmas is pretty much just an excuse for me to bake all damn day.
Though, to be honest, I haven’t been baking much this holiday season. Mostly because of my recent preoccupation with candy making. Lately, I have been making so much candy that it hasn’t left me much time for baking. Last week was my super simple Honeycomb Candy. This week’s creation is my own sweet and savory twist on the old campfire staple: French Four Spice Marshmallows!
This post is going to be a little different. I don’t want to talk about food.
Oh don’t worry, I promised you a recipe. So there is most certainly a recipe at the end of this post. It’s the most stupidly simply candy recipe that I have ever stumbled upon (seriously, I think I found this on StumbleUpon).
Honeycomb candy, also known as seafoam candy, is an easy recipe that requires fewer than 5 ingredients and comes together in less than 10 minutes. As long as you have a candy thermometer, you good to go. In my version, I exchanged the honey for maple syrup and added a few tablespoons of bourbon whiskey (you know I had to).
