I was admiring Foxs Lane's blog post when I thought to myself "Stephanie, go on... You can do it. Just give it a go and you might be sweetly rewarded for your effort." And happily rewarded I have been as no one else in my family likes them. A large clear bowl sits in the middle of the fridge filled to the brim with these glittering red jewels. The fridge has never looked so pretty.
These were not as hard to make as I had anticipated and may become a go to recipe when I want to spoil myself. However you do have to work fast as the toffee hardens surprisingly quickly. These sweet treats cost me $1.10 each. I rarely see them for sale in my town - but when I do, I think they are at the $3 mark. I was also thinking how pretty these would look with a ribbon on the stick. They would make lovely gifts for sweet toothed adults.
Do you have any sweet childhood treats you dream about from time to time? Go on do tell, because I love sugar and spice and all things nice,
