SORRY GUYS bad news. I’m calling a 2 week (including this week) hiatus because college is dumb.
I’m at the hardest part of my semester and I need to work hard on all kinds of projects, essays, and tests. On top of all this, I’m feeling physically really crappy so (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻ yeah.
I look forward to when I can get back to making ya’ll yummy things but for now I’ll just cry into my piles of homework. See you at the light at the end of this tunnel!
dickgraysonismyfirsthusband asked: Have you ever made any of the candies Nancy always eats, like Koko Kringles or Moon Chuncks? Or would you just suggest it would be easier to buy the candy most like it and put a wrapper on it, if you were to use it for a birthday present? -joehardyismysecondhusband
Good question! Candy is actually A LOT harder to make than you would expect which is why there are only so many good candy brands out there. You really have to have the right tools and a lot of patience with most candy recipes (in my experience anyway.)
Regardless, it might be fun to try a few Nancy Drew candies in the future. I draw the line, however, at Koko Kringles because they already exist! Her Interactive sells them around Christmas I hear.
ANDIMUSTGETMYHANDONSOME Lickie Loos exist as well. Unless Her can gimme their recipes I won’t be making them haha.
Moon Chunks would definitely be something I’d be interested in making someday but since it’s cheese candy (???) I wouldn’t exactly know where to start haha. Sounds like a fun challenge though.
As for wrapping normal candy :D that’s a really cute idea, especially for a gift or a party. If you take that route, put extra effort into making the wrapper look really schnazzy and authentic. I’m sure whoever your giving it to will appreciate your hard work.
Another idea is to make a cake or cupcakes and decorate them like the ND candy wrappers, I’ve seen that done before and it always looks really cool.
