Mysterious Confection

 My friend Dorthy told me about a candy she had some time back and I just had to do the best I could to replicate it, and I must say – success!

This seemingly innocent chocolate candy is not what it seems. Put a piece of this delisih candy in your mouth. In a few seconds you begin to feel the popping on your tongue and the inside of your cheeks.

Then a moment or so after that, the heat from the chipotle hits the back of your throat and warms it nicely.  It’s fun, groovy and a perfect treat with a little trick. I’ll show you how to make this SIMPLE candy for not only Halloween, but it’s a great April Fools trick too, just change the sprinkles!
