I believe the 2 heart shaped filled donuts, were here last year, but the ‘X’ and ‘O’ are new 🙂 The 2 hearts were filled with cream, and were good, not outrageously sweet. Unfortunately for us, the ‘X’ and ‘O’ were much sweeter. Will pass on those, if they bring them back next year. If you’re a Krispy Kreme fan, and want to try one of these, make your way over to a local store before Valentine’s Day comes and goes!!
During the holidays, I love to roast almonds. I usually make a savoury version, but this year I really wanted to try something sweeter. When I came across this recipe I knew I had to try it. I followed the recipe to a ‘T’ up until the spice choice. The recipe calls for Chili Powder, but I decided to use Cayenne Pepper instead. It turned out really good, with a bit of a kick, and was quick to prepare. I stirred it every 20mins for about 40-45mins, because in my oven, they were ready by then. For next time though, I’ll use both Chili powder and Cayenne Pepper, to see if it gives it an extra kick 😀 If you like the combo of sweet and spicy, I’d recommend you give this recipe a try!!
So, my hubby and I were at a Bulk Barn (bulk food store, here in Canada), and they had their plethora of Fall and Halloween candy out. As we were perusing the bins, we came across these pumpkin spice malt balls!! Now…we love malt balls, and usually get some during the holiday season, but pumpkin spice? We had never noticed these before. So, we bought a small amount to try out, and they’re nummy!! They’re a combination of the classic malt ball flavour with pumpkin pie – can’t go wrong with that. If you have a Bulk Barn near you, and you have a chance, I’d recommend you trying these out – they’re pretty omnomnom-worthy!!
