A Candy Winner! (and a candy loser)


First things first: the winner of my Dylan's Candy Giveaway has been selected by random.org and without further adieu... CONGRATS Boaz Frankel!  Please email me at siri (at) siriouslydelicious (dot) com and let me know where I should ship the gift certificate.  Thank you all for playing!  

Moving on... 

That is a Homemade Twix Bar.  Looks pretty good, right?  NOPE.  NOT GOOD.  Listen, I have to tell you guys something really important.  Are you listening?  Sometimes I screw up.  

Although, I don't really blame myself, I blame this recipe (a lovely blog, however).  I wasn't a fan of a few things, but mainly the addition of sweetened condensed milk in the caramel and ground rice in the shortbread.  The milk made the caramel too sweet, too light in color and bland in flavor.  And the ground rice took away from the buttery goodness of the shortbread, making it oddly crunchy.  If I try these again, I'm going to make my own caramel and my own shortbread.  The End.

pictures anyway...  

I only dipped a few in chocolate, then I gave up and ate the rest of the melted chocolate with a spoon.  I'm fat.

Love your honesty, Siri. :-)

The real reason the recipe was a flop was because you were SUPPOSED to make the Snickers!
