A challenge was made and a challenge was accepted. Step one. Take a photo of your Halloween candy dish. Step two. Create a new recipe with the candy you had left at the end of the night.
Simple enough, right?
So let me just say… There are so many cards that fell perfectly into place here. First, I never ever back down from a challenge. It’s just not possible. I️ am sure this mentality drove my parents nuts when I was younger. Maybe a local sheriff or to as well. 😂😂LOL.
But seriously I like to play and I like to win. Yes, I do have this whole “I have to win” thing too! I may even take out a kid or two if nessacary. Causulties. It happens. Altough there was nothing to win here. Except an incredibly delicious recipe! Which also happened.
Then there was the fact I luckily put back the $8 bag of cheap colored tootsie roll candy at Walmart. Decide to not be stingy to the neighborhood chidren and getting the expensive bags of chocolate candy worked out to have it’s perks. Because a pink and green melted tootie roll or whatever the crap those things are called cake really would not have made a cake worth breaking a diet for.
Luckily we still had some good candy left over by the end of the night and I choose Whoppers and Milk Duds.
I just LOVE malted anything. So this seemed like a no brainer. The Milk Dud ganache, that would be all Scott Bradshaw’s idea. Oh and an amazing one it was! It worked like a charm!
I melted the Milk Duds in the microwave. At first I was a little concerned that those little suckers were going to seize. But alas they did not! I poured them directly into the warm ganache as I think they would have set up again rather quickly.
They incorporated right in! This ganache was amazing. I will soooooo be doing this more often. It set up beautifully and then whipped up nicely to frost the cupcakes. It set back up very nicley on the cupcakes!
These were a blast to make but even more fun to eat. They wash down well with a cold glass of milk! Notice I️ said “they” because you won’t eat just one!
Sugar coma commence!
