My first candy project! When I saw the recipe for Red Wine Lollipops by Sprinkle Bakes, I knew I had to do it for Valentine’s day. I went to Sur La Table to buy my supplies, and made a night of it. I used a Port dessert wine, and they came out candy-sweet delicious. Check out the recipe here.

Leone’s candy originals originated in Italy in 1857. This Absinthe candy is “from the original recipe of the distillers of Val de Travers, the symbolic liqueur of the Belle Époque is used to create an original product line that explores all the nuances of the Green Fairy’s “potion”.” Read more about this candy and many others at their website.

Balls of booze! Happy early Valentine’s Day.
These Kentucky Bourbon Balls are bake free. I followed this recipe to the t. A couple tips: After creating the balls, instead of letting these sit in the fridge overnight, freeze them for an hour with a decorative toothpick then dip in chocolate. It makes the dipping much easier. I also added some vegetable oil to the chocolate for shine and an easier dip. Thanks for the bird toppers, mom!
