Chocolate Covered Honeycomb

Hi, everyone! I apologize for the lack of recent posts, but this week was my first full week back at school–oh, the horror! Fortunately I had saved some recipes so that I could quickly post them during the school year, for between my full course load and extracurriculars, I must  force myself not to bake! (Although, I did bake my famous Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies for the first day of school, which were undoubtably appreciated by tired brains mourning a relaxing summer.) I’ve recently become very interested in making candy because it’s very similar to a chemical lab in science class. I made these chocolate-covered honeycombs, my fastest recipe yet, which turned out crunchy and delicious! I had never eaten honeycomb before, but being one of my mom’s favorite candies, they most definitely lived past her expectations; the honeycomb was light, sweet, and airy. And of course, how could anything dipped in chocolate go wrong? Enjoy!

Candy Store Chocolate Fudge

My first attempt at candy-making: Candy Store Chocolate Fudge! Fudge reminds me of my favorite candy store when I was little, the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.  Apparently I wasn’t very adventurous with my choice of sweets (I would always buy my favorite caramel apple!), but my mom’s pick was their famous chocolate fudge! But now that I’m older, I’m ready to experiment, so let’s talk fudge! I was so surprised how incredibly fast and easy this recipe was to make! (And I was also happy to use the leftover condensed milk from my Chocolate Flan Cake!) The fudge was wonderfully rich, decadent and delicious…it would be great paired with some caramel and sea salt! Enjoy!!
