Mysterious Halloween Candy Confection

White chocolate with halloween sprinkles and a surprise when you eat it

Chocolate with a bit of sweet, some pop and a little heat

 My friend Dorthy told me about a candy she had some time back and I just had replicate what I call Mysterious Halloween Candy Confection with sweet and heat.

This seemingly innocent chocolate candy is not what it appears to be.

Put a piece of this Mysterious Halloween Candy Confection in your mouth…..wait for it…and in a few seconds you begin to feel the popping on your tongue and the inside of your cheeks.

Wait for it….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 great for an April Fools trick too – just change the sprinkles!
