Five Favorite Candies


The theme for Give Me Five Monday
this week is Five Favorite Candies. I should be cooking dinner just now, but I’m still bushed from running errands all day, so this counts as my coffee break!

  1. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I only allow myself to have these occasionally, when I’m out shopping, because I do so enjoy them. Salty . . . sweet . . . chocolatey . . . What more need be said?
  2. Nestle Treasures, especially the “Rich Dark Chocolate Filled with Luscious Caramel” variety. I eat about one or two of these per day, with coffee. That’s to keep me sweet.
  3. Divinity, homemade. I find it doesn’t turn out as well in our damp climate as in dry Arizona.
  4. Peanut Brittle, homemade. Fortunately, I haven’t made this for decades.
  5. Do unbaked cookies made with rolled oats and cocoa count as candy? Those are really good, too.

    I like Reese’s too, and I’m going to have to buy some of those dark chocolate and caramel Treasures. This has been a very dangerous GM5!

    Thanks for your comment on my header. I thought it turned out well, but it’s nice to hear other people like it, too. 🙂
