The challenge this month was to try our hand at bonbons, truffles, chocolate bark, pate de fruits, honeycomb and any other candy we would like to make.
So finally, the different candies I did make and were more successful than others were:
Spiked and spiced Dulce de Leche Bonbons
Chocolate green tea caramel bites
Mint & toasted pecans chocolate bark
Creme de menthe & pecan truffles
Blonde rocky road
Blueberry Orange Jelly filled white chocolate bonbons
Dark chocolate filled with Malibu & Blueberry cashew marzipan white chocolate truffles
These were all packed and distributed. Of course, between the time they were made and delivered a lot of sampling happened. Something my dentist will definitely frown upon and my behind will regret very soon!
