Candy

fried candy corn

Looking for something new to do with candy corn? Amy of Oh, Bite It has an idea for you: deep fry the yellow, orange, and white pieces of sugar. I can’t say that it looks appealing, but the process could create a tasty ball of melted candy. She used Pillsbury crescent dough for the breading and put four pieces of candy corns into each ball. Then she deep fried away and made ooey gooey candy corn puffs.

Get the full recipe and how-to over at Oh, Bite It.

1cda_delicious_dead_zombie_mold

Halloween is just over two weeks away, and if you’re having a party you should start thinking about snacks. This new chocolate mold from ThinkGeek would make a great addition because it has everything you need to make a graveyard scene – even zombies! You can use it for chocolate and also for ice and Jell-O. Anything you can squish into a mold is fair game.

Use the finished zombie and tombstone pieces as cake or cupcake toppers or simply arrange them on top of chocolate cake crumbs in a bowl.

Starburst Freeze

Taco Bell has the best beverages and treats. They already have the Mountain Dew Baja Blast Freeze, but now they’re getting even cooler with a Starburst Freeze. The brand new menu item was made available starting yesterday, and it looks pink, sugary, and refreshing. I can’t wait to try it. I wonder if it will go with a Doritos taco?

snickers-donut-bar

LA-based donut shop/culinary dream factory California Donuts has a rather unique donut that’s been garnering quite a bit of attention lately. It’s called the Snickers Bar Donut. Why? Because it features an entire Snickers candy bar inside of a flippin’ donut.

Mind blown? Yeah, well it gets even better: the donut is topped with peanuts and chocolate chips too. So if I were you, I’d head on over to California Donuts and pick up one of these tasty treats. The shop’s Instagram page makes it look like the Snickers Bar Donut is available intermittently, so just check before you decide to pop over for a visit.

mr. bean snickers

Snickers continues their “You’re not you when you’re hungry” campaign with an ad that features Rowan Atkinson as the legendary Mr. Bean. The character he plays has lost his kung fu skills because he’s hungry. Once he eats a Snickers candy bar though, all is right with the world.

Watch the commercial after the break.

Emergency-Chocolate-Craft-on-30-Minute-Crafts

There are moments, days, and even weeks when you just need chocolate. Candy can turn things around and make life better. It’s true. Carolina knows this, and she came up with a genius emergency chocolate craft. Basically, you get a shadow box frame, etch “in case of emergency break glass” on the front, and fill it with candy or chocolate. Keep a hammer close by (or better yet, just open it up. M&Ms taste better without the glass).

See a couple WIP photos after the break.

clown

Clowns range from creepy to terrifying even when they’re trying to be silly and happy, and this gumball machine is definitely on the terrifying side with its offer of free candy that requires you to put your hand under the clown’s nose to retrieve your treat. It was built by Jesse Wroblewski so you can thank him for your nightmares tonight.

gummy-python-8-feet-long

If you like gummi candy, then this tasty treat should be #1 on your Christmas wish list this year. It’s a 26-pound gummy python that measures nearly 8-feet long. He packs 36,000 calories and comes in either blue raspberry and green apple or red cherry and blue raspberry. And just in case you’re not sure it’ll feed the hungry masses at your next party, they say it has 306 servings so you’ll probably be just fine.

kit-kat sandwich 1

Nick of Dude Foods is known for his weird food combinations, and I think the latest one takes the grand prize for being bizarre. He coated and deep fried two KitKat candy bars and then used them instead of bread for a grilled cheese sandwich. Yes, you read that right, it’s a deep fried KitKat bar grilled cheese sandwich. He claims it’s tasty:

Honestly, looking back at it right now it doesn’t even look that appetizing, but let me tell you, it was pretty damn good!

No, it doesn’t look appealing, and I’ll have to take his word that it’s edible because I don’t foresee putting that creation into my mouth anytime soon.

gummy larvae 1

There’s a little coffee stand in a Japan shipping harbor that serves the best tasting bugs around. Why’s that? Because Akai Tento no Koohii Ten (The Red Tent Coffee Shop) is famous for making bugs that are actually gummy candy.

Gummy on the outside, blueberry jam guts on the inside, these insect larvae come in a variety of species and sizes for ever palate.

Plus, when you squeeze them, goo comes out. Yummy!
